Joseph Kimes

Executive Director, W. P. Carey Career Services Center

Joey Kimes is the Executive Director for the W. P. Carey Career Services Center, overseeing the career management, employer engagement, and operations teams while providing strategic direction to all career initiatives.  Joey knows the importance of ensuring market-alignment of all career programming—both student- and employer-oriented—so high-quality connections can be made between employers and candidates.  He believes that students identifying directed career goals and cultivating an action-oriented process to meet those goals, with a focus on proactive actions that drive toward career-focused results for students, allow for them to go-to market competitive and highlight the relevancy of their experiences with the skills firms are seeking.  While at W. P. Carey, Joey has worked on standardizing a 12-month onboarding journey for new career coaches, developing and launching data and outcome-focused annual reporting, and designing a program to cultivate MBA-level, career-ready business professionals; he has, also, supported the initial development of the Career Blueprint and Career Management Model. Joey is a Gallup Certified Strengths coach and holds an MBA from the Heider College of Business at Creighton University, a M.S. in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Colorado State University, and B.A. degrees in Journalism and Psychology from Marquette University.
