"Throughout my college years, I’ve become increasingly confident that I have been trained to be hireable and will be an asset to any company after graduation. This is due to the broad knowledge base, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills that Wheaton has instilled in me. On a very practical level, Wheaton’s Center for Vocation and Career helps students land internships that provide even more experience and opportunities in the working world."
