Are you a transfer student?

Hey, are you a transfer student? Program into your schedule a visit to University Career Services (UCS), located on the second floor of Hanes Hall, behind the Campus Y and Memorial Hall. This post will tell you why!

We have a lot to offer. We know, you transferred and you are getting acclimated to the university, finding classes, making friends, figuring out public transportation, or even parking, meeting with your academic advisor to graduate in the pre-determined number of semesters, and joining campus organizations and activities.

You may not be thinking right at this moment that a resume, internship, or how to dress for an interview is important. And, maybe at this moment it is not. One day all those career related activities will be important. So visit UCS early in your academic career and visit us often to keep your career aspirations on track.

Here is some of what you will find out when you make an appointment with a career counselor, online, by phone or in person, or you see a career counselor on walk-ins Monday-Friday 1-4pm.

  • There are resume writing resources—handouts, a how-to video, Optimal Resume (an online resume creation tool).
  • There are 44 workshops on a variety of topics, including: Effective job searching, Finding an Internship, Acing the Interview, Preparing for a Career Fair, Teaching English Abroad, Finding a Major that Fits, Jobs in the Federal Government and the list goes on.
  • There are 6 panels on topics including: Careers in Law Enforcement/Intelligence, 1-2 Year Public Service Opportunities, Going to Grad School, Careers in Allied Health, Careers in Entertainment and Business Careers for Liberal Arts Majors.
  • There are 4 Networking Nights on topics including: Careers with a Conscience, Careers in Sports, Careers in Writing/Publishing and Careers in the Arts. (A networking night is where 15-20 professionals on a given topic each give a 30 second introduction and then students walk around mock tail party style gathering information about occupations, industries and opportunities.)
  • There are 3 Career Fairs—Internship Fair on January 27, Education Job Fair on March 16, and the Spring Career Expo on March 23.
  • There are a host of online resources to assist you in your internship or job search, including Careerolina where employers post jobs and internships for UNC students.

 

We know your schedules are busy and we understand that. We just want to make sure that you visit us early and often to take advantage of the many career resources available to you. UCS is here to help you achieve your dreams.

Check us out. We look forward to seeing you soon in Hanes Hall, 2nd floor.

Laura Lane, UCS assistant director
