LIFE AT WSU

  • Services for Employers and Recruiters

    Worcester State University’s Career Services Office is your connection for recruiting from our pool of talented undergraduate and graduate students and alumni. WSU students:

    • Conduct innovative research and develop creative ideas with acclaimed faculty; engage in service learning opportunities in the community; and pursue study away opportunities in the United States and abroad
    • Are prepared to take on real-world challenges with portfolios that include critical-thinking, teamwork, problem-solving, communication, technology, and global-awareness skills
  • LancerLink - Professional Opportunities

    LancerLink is Worcester State University’s free online internship and job database dedicated to helping our students and alumni make professional connections with employers. In the Career Services Office, we believe LancerLink is such a useful tool that we require all students and alumni to set up an account in order to schedule an appointment with us. The growing number of students and alumni who use LancerLink makes it worthwhile for employers to establish accounts and use it as a recruiting tool.

    We consider our work with employers a partnership effort. Our goal is to achieve the best match possible between individual students and employing organizations. Employers and recruiters must set up an account and register available internship/job opportunities in LancerLink, to access all of our services, including a consultation session and information/recruiting table scheduling.

    Employer Access

    Consultation Session

    Employers with LancerLink accounts can take advantage of the exclusive opportunity to speak with a Career Services staff member to discuss recruiting needs and strategies. Once you have your LancerLink account set up, please contact us to schedule a 15-minute telephone consultation.

    As WSU's main resource for employer-student relations, let us help you to create a streamlined plan for an on-campus presence at our information/recruiting tables, fairs, and other events. Our discussion will focus on developing your existing efforts with regards to interviewing and recruiting our students for internship, part-time, and full-time employment opportunities.

    We also invite your representatives to contact us to express interest in collaborating with WSU faculty to host our students in practicums and clinicals. We welcome proposals for original programming as well.
