At Move-In Day Fall 2012: (l-r) Duane, Kent, April, James
April Evans, Administrative Assistant
As the newest member of the Career Services team, I have served as administrative assistant since May 2010. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from the University of Kansas. Each day, I strive to provide staff support and personalized services to meet the complete career development needs of Washburn students and alumni. In addition, I am the initial contact for employers and coordinate job postings and interview schedules.
James Barraclough, Specialist
I have been working with the Career Services team since 2008. I advise students on all aspects of the career development process and I serve as liaison to the Health Care and Education programs on campus. It brings me great joy to empower students to identify their passions and translate them into meaningful, fulfilling college experiences and careers. With this in mind, I created a course, IS-120: Major & Career Exploration, and have been teaching sections of it for deciding students since 2010. As of 2013, I am excited to serve as a WU-101 instructor for the FYE program. On campus, I am a graduate of the Leadership Washburn program and am proud to say I have been able to give back by serving as a Facilitator for two years. I also serve on the Diversity Initiative Committee, the Greek Life Advisory Board, and as the Faculty Advisor for an outstanding Greek organization at Washburn. Professionally, I am a member of the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) and the Kansas Association of Colleges & Employers (KACE). I have completed Career Coaching Intensive training, and I am certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Educational Leadership - College Student Development from Oklahoma State University.
Duane Williams, Specialist
I have been with Career Services and Washburn since 1994. I work with all students in assisting with achieving their career goals. I also help in bringing the Fall Career & Graduate School Fair and Spring Career Fair to campus. I am a member of the Kansas Association of Colleges & Employers (KACE). I have completed Career Coaching Intensive training and I am certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. I am also a Washburn graduate.
Kent McAnally, Director
I've been the director at WU Career Services since 2006 after working in career services at KU for about 7 years full-time and 4 years part-time while in graduate school. In my first life, I was a music educator, with thirteen years teaching in schools in Arkansas and Kansas and six years teaching at the college level while working on a master's and a Ph.D. at KU. I am certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. At WU Career Services, I work with students of all types for both career counseling and career/job-search advising when not absorbed in administrative work. My memberships include both the Kansas and National Associations of Colleges and Employers (KACE and NACE), the American Association for Employment in Education (AAEE), and the local Chamber of Commerce and Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) chapter. I have degrees from Henderson State University and The University of Kansas and enjoy traveling and gardening.
