Career, Graduate Education, and Networking Events

Upcoming Career, Graduate Education, and Networking Events

We recognize that students have multiple competing priorities for their time on-campus (and off-campus) that don’t always allow for participating 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 have also spoken with recruiters to ensure they take measures not to privilege one modality over another. Tar Heel students can rest assured that there is no penalty to their applications based on their chosen form of engagement. At University Career Services, we’ve got students covered!! UCS-facilitated recruitment events offer 4 Ways to Connect:

  • Connect by 1:1 or group sessions scheduling on Handshake Virtual Fairs with recruiters available to discuss their organizations, workplace, or job postings: whether you are job seeking or just want to expand your network for future opportunities at the on-campus event you’re at.
  • Connect by virtual chatting on Handshake with recruiters available to discuss job postings that interest you: all recruiters will be obliged to set up Handshake’s 15-minute virtual chats scheduling tool on each job posting 4-weeks prior to the fair (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 recruiters managing job postings that interest you: all recruiters will be obliged to set up Handshake’s messaging tool on each job posting 4-weeks prior to the fair and afterward until the postings close (or have a recruiter’s contact info available on their Handshake company page).
  • Connect by applying directly on Handshake to the job postings from the attending companies: all jobs that companies discuss at the fair will be posted on Handshake 4-weeks prior to the fair and afterward until the postings close.
