Center for Career Development
The Center for Career Development (CCD) guides students in identifying career opportunities that fit with their skills, interests and aspirations. We facilitate specialized programs, generate internship and full-time opportunities, and build connections between students and employers.
WVU IS SWITCHING TO HANDSHAKE!
Handshake will replace our current system, MountaineerTRAK, and will create an exceptional user experience for students, alumni, and employers.

The CCD understands that employers and students prefer different ways to recruit—and be recruited.
We create programs that adapt to the needs of our employers, students, and alumni.
