What Makes Us Effective

“When a customer is seeking to select any product or service, the question they ask themselves is- “What makes this company different and why should I choose them?” As a team member who started with WOU as a Career Resource Specialist in 1994, I can attest that this company is passionate about the success of each customer, innovative in approach, and relentless in its pursuit of outcomes. There are a lot of us who have been with this organization for many years and remain dedicated to the mission and are proud to call WOU home. The following will provide you with just some of the reasons why WOU has been a successful employment provider since 1982.”

— Ryan Mountain, COO of Career Services
