So, you made it! You’re in the homestretch and graduation is just around the corner. But how do you get there? And once you’re there, what happens next? Read on for our final breakdown of what to expect during and after Year Four of your Westfield State Experiecne.

Work It – There’s more to finding a job than sending out a few resumes. It starts at the Career Center. By now, you should’ve looked at future opportunities with a counselor and explored internships and volunteer programs. But there’s plenty more available to you before graduation. Ask about upcoming job fairs, get help prepping your resume, and learn professional interview tips that will come in handy down the road. Get the most out of your time at college!

There are nine graduate degree programs to choose from that offer flexible hours, affordable costs, and are taught by expert faculty members.

A Master’s will provide the chance to dig even deeper into your field and really narrow down your studies into a specific area. It’s also a great way to stand out in the job market. Employers look for dedicated individuals who are able to learn and grow on the job. A Master’s Degree is a great way to prove that you’re willing to go that extra mile and invest in yourself and your career.
