WOU Alumni

Share. Connect. Mentor.

The Center for Professional Pathways offers a variety of ways for Western Oregon University alumni to share their knowledge and experience to help current students in their career decision-making. Below are some of the ways in which you can help the CPP and WOU students.


CPP hosts a number of events and opportunities for alumni to share their academic and career experiences. Whether it is a networking event, mentor-program, or career fair, alumni are often the most sought after professionals for current students to connect with.

If you are interested in opportunities like this, follow the WOU CPP page on LinkedIn and keep an eye out for events posted on Handshake. We often use Handshake as a means for event registration but will post announcements on LinkedIn as well.


Many WOU students are looking for part-time jobs and want to complete internships during their time as an undergrad. We host a variety of opportunities for companies to recruit and advertise their openings to WOU students. WolfLink/Handshake is our most popular option but contact us for more information on other means of posting/advertising. 

For more on how to post an internship/job/volunteer opportunity for Western students, visit our WolfLink page.


We are always looking for alumni who can volunteer to help with our events. Alumni can help conduct mock interviews, be a table host at an etiquette dinner, host a tour of their company or organization, provide job shadowing opportunities, or serve as a panelist/presenter.  Connect with our director, Adry Clark, for more resources and information on this!  To indicate your interest in becoming a volunteer for any of these services, please contact our office.

Follow the WOU CPP page on LinkedIn or visit our calendar of events to stay in the loop on upcoming events.
