Career Coaching

You and your career coach will develop an action plan which will support your job or internship search, including discussing your educational and professional history, future career goals, current concerns, and formulating recommendations for next steps. For Arts & Sciences students, appointments are available with Mary Katherine Newsome and are scheduled by emailing her at newsommk@nullwfu.edu or reserving a time on her booking site. Biomedical sciences students may schedule a meeting with Dr. Roper by emailing broper@nullwakehealth.edu.
