Welcome to the online home of the Wilson career center! Here you will find notices of upcoming events and links to useful sites. 

The career center has resources, study space, and a computer lab for your use. You will find college literature on the bookshelves and career- and financial aid-related materials on the tall rack. Presentations from college and university representatives take place in the career center, most commonly in the fall (see schedule at right). I also arrange several field trips each year to local colleges and will promote those opportunities on this page as well. ​See the announcement about the Feb. 23 trip to the Bates Central Campus Open House.

If you would like to earn credit for your part-time job, please see me for the Worksite Learning paperwork.
