Linkedin jobs logoJoin the Warner Pacific community on LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional social network, to learn about career paths, connect with key contacts, and stay in touch with the College.

  • 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.

*While we seek to post  jobs consistent with our mission, vision, and values, it is a student’s responsibility to do their due diligence in the job search process.  WPC does not assume responsibility for the jobs posted through the links provided.
