Center for Career Readiness

The Center for Career Readiness strives to empower all students and recent alumni to become uniquely career ready in order to ultimately pursue meaningful work. The Center for Career Readiness through one on one appointments and career events engages students in:

  • Identifying personal qualities and attributes related to choosing potential careers
  • Exploring careers by accessing career information
  • Creating meaningful career goals
  • Gaining career readiness skills through employment and internships
  • Developing and applying skills in order to write a resume and cover letter, interview, negotiate salary, search for a job and/or graduate school, build their network, and write a personal statement

Signature career events hosted by the Center for Career Readiness include UNC’s Job, Internship and Graduate School Fairs, K-12 Educator Employment Day(s), and alumni career panels (in partnership with UNC Advancement). The Center for Career Readiness also manages Handshake—a job, internship, and networking platform.
