WolfLink is your online connection to WOU students and alumni. WolfLink is powered by Handshake.
We recommend all companies post their open positions here so students begin to see your company name. You can list part-time jobs for students while they are in school, summer full or part-time jobs, internships, seasonal, or full time positions, and you can manage all applications through the system, or direct students to an alternative application site.

Participate in Career Connects, Mock Interviews, or Dinners

Each term, our staff hosts a career connect bringing together industry experts and targeted majors together to network. We welcome employers to become an active part of career connects.
Mock interviewing allows you to meet and network with students who may have an interest in your field, and it provides a way for you to give back and help in educating students in their professional development.
