Career Trek Services and Support

University Career Services partners with faculty, staff, and student organizations to provide expertise on best practices for how you can organize and lead a Career Trek for your student populations. This new service is being piloted to support Academic Departments/Schools that do not have their own Department-based Career Office – or someone serving in that capacity. If you are interested in organizing a Career Trek in North Carolina in the upcoming Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters, then please contact Kelsey Durham, Assistant Director of Internships & Experiential Learning at Kelsey.Durham@unc.edu.

The following support will be provided:

  • UCS will identify (if requested) potential host employers and the appropriate contacts.
  • UCS will advise Career Trek organizers on logistics, planning, and assessment of student learning outcomes.
  • UCS will conduct an in-person and/or virtual Workshop for students on how to maximize a Career Trek experience.
  • UCS will pay the costs for roundtrip transportation to Career Trek sites through Carolina Livery transport.

Note: To receive services, students must be receiving a degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and must not be in the MBA, Law, Medical, or Dental programs, which are served by separate career offices.
