Welcome

Western Michigan University's Zhang Career Center ensures business students have the skills to confidently articulate and demonstrate their career readiness to potential employers. We provide business students with resources and experiences that support their success in the work environment and collaborate with employers on hiring talent for their organizations.

We have been closely monitoring and evaluating the global COVID-19 pandemic to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of our faculty, staff, students and guests. We are available Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. by appointment only. We are here to help any students who need assistance with resumes, mock interviews, career advice, etc. We will conduct these meetings via email, phone calls or WebEx.
