Job Search Sites for Alumni

A good job search strategy utilizes diverse methods. Online employment sites provide a great starting point, but do not rely on them exclusively! Networking and applying to organizations directly remain among the most effective strategies.  For assistance with your job search, please call 610-436-2501 to schedule an appointment.

RAM CAREER NETWORK

Ram Career Network is the new online, one-stop career portal for WCU students, alumni, and employers. Hundreds of jobs and internships will be posted weekly just for the WCU community; alumni will also be able to access state-wide and national networks of other jobs, all in one convenient location!

To log in or register for a new account, click on the logo or point your browser to the following URL (the same for students and alumni):

Alumni are eligible to participate in on-campus recruiting (a feature within Ram Career Network) up to one year after receiving a WCU degree. It is at the employer's discretion to determine if alumni will be eligible to apply.  Alumni are expected to adhere to all Student OCR Policies in order to remain eligible to participate.
