Westfield State plans to resume its traditional, on-campus schedule for fall 2020. Given the ongoing uncertainties related to COVID-19, we believe it is also prudent to develop contingency plans. Updates will be communicated as they become available.


Ask A Career Counselor

Do you have a question?   Not sure who to ask?   
Here are some of the questions a Career Counselor might be able to help you with:

  • How do I decide on a major?
  • What career fields might be a good fit for someone interested in...?
  • When should I start thinking about graduate school?
  • How do I get experience while in college?
  • Should I think about an internship?
  • What is a resume? Do cover letters matter?
  • I have heard about portfolios - Do I need one?
  • I am interviewing but don't seem to make it to the next step - What should I do?
  • How do I connect with local employers?
  • What are the "hot" career fields today?
  • How do I distinguish myself as an undergraduate?

These are only a few of the questions you might bring to the Career Center. No question is too big or too small, silly or too serious. If we don't know the answer, we will help you find someone who can help!
