Job Location Development (JLD) Program

What is JLD?

The primary purpose of the JLD Program is to connect students with off-campus, part-time roles that are aligned with their academic major and/or career goals. All UNC students of any year including graduate students currently seeking off-campus job opportunities are invited to join, regardless of whether they are eligible for need-based driven financial aid or not. Each student will have the opportunity to work for a variety of industries and companies. Click here to find more information about the employers here.

Why should I join?

Having a part-time job while in school has many advantages including covering expenses, implementing academic curriculum into practice, and gaining a large network. Plus, being part of the JLD Program allows you to connect your academic and career interests with experience to ultimately assist you in landing a full-time job in the future! No matter what, you will gain a myriad of transferrable skills that position yourself for a future internship, full-time job opportunity, startup venture, or graduate school.
