Parents, guardians, and families often have questions about the career development process and the services provided by career services at UNC Chapel Hill. The following information is designed to help you understand the mission of career services and the many touch points we have with students from undergraduate to graduate. Please encourage your student to use the complimentary services offered by University Career Services—career coaching, job and graduate school search support, resume development, mock interviews, career fairs, and special events for networking, and skill development.

If you have further questions about our office or services, contact us at ucs@unc.edu or 919-962-6507.


Handshake is UNC Chapel Hill’s job and internship board for students and alumni. This complimentary service allows your student to create a profile and post a resume that are visible to potential employers, schedule 1:1 career coaching appointments (virtual or in-person), and register for various events and workshops such as career and graduate information fairs, on-campus interviews, company information sessions, networking events, and more! Students are automatically provided with access to Handshake upon enrollment and only need to sign into their accounts with their ONYEN.
