      and career goals (to the best of their ability) and we connect them with a WNE alum working in that field or a related field.  In addition, participants attend a series of workshops designed to help them build skills that will prepare them for the working world.  Applications are available in November each year, and the program runs during the Spring semester. To apply for the program, complete the application and send to careercenter@wne.edu. For more information, reach out to sean.burke@wne.edu.
