The Office of Personal & Career Development guides and inspires Wake Forest students to take charge of their personal and career development from their initial days on campus. By creating a supportive “college-to-career” community of faculty, parents and advisors, the office equips students to lead lives with purpose.


Marketplace is a resource designed just for Wake Forest students. It’s designed to help you find opportunities and information for a wide variety of fields, especially in industries that do not rely on college recruiting. There are job opportunities, brief industry videos, social media accounts to follow and more. Over 35 fields of interest are represented.

When you create your Handshake, you’ll get access to receive job and internship opportunities, event invites, and resources specifically matching your interests. You can also manage contacts, make career coach appointments, and track your development right from your phone.
