WGU Career & Professional Development
Recruiting WGU Students & Alumni
WGU graduates are ready to work. WGU degree programs are designed with employer input to ensure that students master the skills employers are looking for— and in order to graduate, they must prove it through competency-based education. It is all about producing graduates whose degrees stand as proof of an alum’s real-world competencies, not simply a certificate of seat time.
