Cory Werkheiser, associate director of experiential learning and career development for School of Business Student Success Center, was recently featured as a CofC Face to Know on The College Today, the official news site of the College of Charleston.
With extensive experience in both career services and workforce development, he continually works to develop strong relationships between all stakeholders including employers, students, and educators to provide outstanding internship, employment, and professional development opportunities.
What does he like most about his job? The students.
I was a high school history teacher for 14 years and thoroughly enjoyed that, but I especially like working with college students because they are so close to the professional world. It’s all opportunity and high aspirations for them, and that is something I feel very blessed to help with.
