Career, Graduate Education, and Networking Events

THIS PAGE IS FOR EMPLOYERS, GRADUATE AND PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS ONLY.

UCS offers several career events throughout the year to help you connect with our students through our On-Campus Recruitment (OCR) strategies. Additionally, we support organizations through Non-OCR strategies and initiatives designed to put them in front of students (Mock Interviews, Job Shadows, Career Treks, Snack & Learns, Panels, etc.). Please see our UCS Employer Engagement Brochure to learn about the various ways your organization can get involved with University Career Services and/or Department-Based Career Offices. Contact the External Relations Team at ucs@unc.edu if you have any questions about our OCR and Non-OCR objectives and plans.

Note: Fall 2022 UCS virtual fairs will be promoted with the strategic purpose to increase: 1) Student Visits to Employer’s (Grad School’s) Handshake Page, 2) Student Follows of Employer’s (Grad School’s) Handshake Page, 3) Student Saves of Employer’s (Grad School’s) Handshake Job (Information) Postings, and 4) Student Applications to Employer’s (Grad School’s) Handshake Job (Information) Postings.

Contact Tessa Minnich at tessaminnich@unc.edu if you have questions about registering for the fairs below.

Student Engagement Opportunities for your Organization

Each semester, the UCS External Relations Team has opportunities for professionals to co-participate in activities with students in various Career Development Initiatives led by our Career Instructors. There are typically over 20 activities each semester that are hosted virtually (or in-person) that provide the following benefits:

  • Promote your organization's employer (or program) brand in a non-recruitment channel.
  • Support the career development of students seeking internships, full-time jobs, entrepreneurship, and graduate school.
  • Increase your network with students by providing your contact/LinkedIn info.
  • Establish, grow, and/or maintain your organization top-of-mind with students, staff, and faculty.

Fall STEM Majors Career Exploration and Experience Fair (Virtual or In-Person) - September 21st 2022, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Location TBD

This event brings together employers who want to help students from STEM-related majors (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) explore various career pathways in their industries and answer questions about what they can do with their majors and career interests.

Four Ways to Connect (Organizations)

We recognize that students have multiple competing priorities for their time on-campus (and off-campus) that don’t always allow for participation in recruitment activities hosted by University Career Services. Our goal is to foster events that meet students where they are. To that end, we are promoting four modalities that allow students to choose what works best for initial engagement with recruiters. We ask that our recruiters strive to take measures to not intentionally privilege one modality over another. Students need reassurance that there is no penalty to their applications or candidacy based on their chosen form of initial engagement.

Employers participating in on-campus recruitment events will have to commit to our four student connection modalities:

  • Connect by 1:1 or group sessions scheduling on Handshake Virtual Fairs with students desiring to learn about your organization, workplace, or job postings: whether they are job seeking or just want to expand their network for future opportunities at the on-campus event you’re at.
  • Connect by virtual chatting on Handshake with students desiring to discuss job postings of interest: all recruiters will be obliged to setup Handshake’s 15-minute virtual chats scheduling tool on each job posting 4-weeks prior to their on-campus event (or have a recruiter’s contact info available on their Handshake company page who can schedule a 15-minute virtual chat outside of Handshake).
  • Connect by direct messaging on Handshake with students desiring to discuss job postings of interest: all recruiters will be obliged to setup Handshake’s messaging tool on each job posting 4-week prior to their on-campus event (or have a recruiter’s contact info available on their Handshake company page).
  • Connect by receiving direct applications on Handshake to job postings from your organization: all jobs that organizations have available for students will be posted on Handshake 4-weeks prior to their on-campus event.

Please contact lead External Relations Consultant, Roderick Lewis at roderick.lewis@unc.edu to discuss if this event is right for you.
