The Student Engagement Center offers comprehensive career advising services to Whitman College students and alumni.

Job Search

Handshake LogoWe can guide you to resources (including Handshake, our online job board) and help you develop skills for your job search. Whether you're preparing for an interview, expanding your network, or just pondering the future, we're here to assist you.


We encourage students to create a resume and update it regularly. Once you've got a draft, make a resume appointment with Gayle Townsend via Handshake.

Practice Interviews

If want to prepare for an upcoming interview - or just gain experience without an actual job on the line - schedule a practice interview with us via Handshake.  Please note that practice interviews require two appointments--one so that we can learn about your interview and have time to prepare questions accordingly based on the industry or field of study, and a second session that consists of the actual practice interview. 

SEC Interview Suite

The Student Engagement Center includes a space dedicated to phone and video interviews. To schedule a time in our Interview Suite in Reid 219, fill out this form.
