Career Services

Reach us at 503.517.1010 or rjohanson@warnerpacific.edu. We’ll help you explore your calling.

Career Services are an integral part of a student’s education. As students more fully understand their values, skills and interests, they’re better prepared to pursue meaningful career and life plans.

  • Create a LinkedIn profile to help you stay connected to your network and to identify new contacts. A strong network is built on real connections with others. Don’t attempt to build your contacts with people you have never met. Likewise, don’t accept invitations from people you do not know.
  • Add Warner Pacific College to the Education section of your profile.
  • Use LinkedIn Job Search to leverage the power of your network and get hired.
  • Provide relevant information in your LinkedIn profile:  headline, photo, work history, and education. This is your online resume.
  • Join Groups purposefully. LinkedIn offers groups for people who share certain interests. For example, join the Official Warner Pacific College Alumni Association group to search for WPC  grads who work in a specific industry, organization, career, or geographic region.
