Career Development & Calling

"Whatever you do,whatever your task may be, work from the soul that is, put in your very best effort, as something done for the Lord and not for men" -Colossians 3:23  (AMP)

Pursuing What's Next

It's where meaning meets major and mission meets marketplace. It's about understanding what makes you tick, what you're drawn to, and discovering how to use the things that God made you good at.  It starts with a conversation. 

Appointments are available to all current Westmont students and alumni free of charge.

We're here to help!

It's an evocative word that sparks equal parts exhilaration and trepidation. You are strapped into the capsule of a rocket, you hear the countdown and your pulse starts racing, and then you're pinned to the back of your seat as the engines' thrust hurls you skyward towards what lies ahead.

Use your time at Westmont to dig deep, forge lifelong friendships, and lean on your professors and our team to help you build a rock-solid launch pad routed in your faith and authentic confidence.
