Career Development & Leadership

Professional development resource for students, faculty and the business community.

North Carolina Wesleyan University’s Office of Career Development & Leadership (OCDL) complements the academic program of the University. The OCDL at Wesleyan assists students’ professional development and serves as a resource to students, faculty, and the business community. By emphasizing hands-on learning as an important tool for both full time employment and in developing a career path, the OCDL helps students realize their career goals.

For Students

The OCDL offers a variety of services that allows traditional day students to assess their skills and abilities, make the major declaration, and explore the world of work.


The OCDL appreciates your interest in connecting with Wesleyan students and alumni. If are seeking to advertise jobs or internship opportunities or just to share information about your field of work, we have opportunities to get you involved.
