Welcome to Wichita Area Technical College’s Career Services. We can assist and help navigate students, recent graduates and alumni  to determine  career paths, develop  plans for job searches; review resumes and cover letters; prepare for interviews; understand salary and benefit information and prepare for  new careers. We have placement rate statistics showing the percentage of our most recent student graduates who are employed, in the military or continuing their education.
