About Career Services: Services & Policies

Services and Resources

We provide the following services and resources:

  • A website featuring links to job opportunities and professional associations, sample resumes and cover letters, networking and interviewing strategies, webinars, student success stories, and other resources; 
  • An overview of our services, via webinar; 
  • One-on-one advising where you and a Career Services Advisor collaborate to set action steps tailored to meet your specific goals; 
  • Live monthly webinars on a variety of career-related topics which are archived for viewing 24/7; 
  • Virtual networking and drop-in advising events;
  • A Walden University Career Services Center LinkedIn group to connect you with other Walden students and alumni for professional networking and sharing career information; 
  • A blog, Twitter, and Facebook presence to publicize our offerings and articles of interest; 
  • Group advising and career-related sessions at virtual academic residencies.

Regarding our advising services, we highly recommend that students and alumni first participate in a 30–minute Career Services Overview webinar to become oriented to our services.  After that, they may schedule three one-on-one telephone appointments over a three month period.  

One-on-one Telephone Advising Appointments

Same day cancellations and no shows cost other students appointment slots; therefore, they are considered appointments for the purpose of this policy.  We use appointments to educate each individual with tools and strategies that they may implement independently, with a periodic check-in with a career services advisor as needed.  

Due to the scientific studies showing a higher risk of car accidents from talking on a cell phone while one is driving, we do not conduct telephone advising appointments with students while they are driving motor vehicles.  If you are driving a motor vehicle at the time of your scheduled appointment, we will ask you to pull over to the side of the road to give our advising conversation your full attention or we will require that your appointment be rescheduled.
