FAQ's: Current Students & Alumni
Q: I don't remember signing up for EAGLElink, how do I have an account?
A: All students automatically receive an EAGLElink account during your first year (or year of transfer). If you do not know your password, follow the instructions on our EAGLElink Guide (pdf – 367 kb) to access your account.
Q: Is my password the same as on Wingspan?
A: No, EAGLElink is not the same system as Wingspan, so your Wingspan password will NOT work for EAGLElink. To get a new password sent to you - log in above and choose "Forgot Password"
Q: How do I know what my username is?
A: Your username is ALWAYS your assigned Winthrop e-mail address (example: firstname.lastname@example.org – no mailbox!)

Tip: If you think another representative from your company may have already created an employer profile on our system, give us a call so we check (803/323-2141). We can manually add you as a new contact for your employer if an account already exists. We also can merge your account after the fact if we find duplicate organization entries in the system.
Researching Employers & Job Postings
Career and Civic Engagement offers EAGLElink as a resource for employers to connect with WU students and alumni seeking internships, part-time jobs, and full-time positions. We strive to keep fraudulent postings off EAGLElink by using some common “red flags” that are considered suspicious. “Red flags” don’t automatically remove a job posting – we research the company and posting if suspicion arises and then make a decision. You should research suspicious companies or postings, too – or don’t apply. We are sharing some “red flags” so you, too, can attempt to identify such scam or fraudulent postings. Our position: never apply to a suspicious job.
These “red flags” are general markers shared to help you conduct a safer job search and to help you protect your identity. These red flags in no way cover all possible instances of fraud or all the red flags. Therefore, please always use your own discretion when applying to a position or interacting with a potential employer.
Fraudulent job postings try to take your money or your personal information. The jobs often look like easy and convenient ways to make money with very little effort. The old adage is accurate: If it looks to good to be true, then it probably isn’t true! Check out our Guide to Employer Research and Scams (pdf - 391 kb) to learn more.
