University Career Services (UCS) provides information, career counseling and coaching, interest assessments, and career-related programs and services to help students learn about various careers and how to prepare for them, make career decisions, acquire job/internship search skills, interact with potential employers, and apply for graduate and professional schools. The mission of University Career Services is to support the mission of the University and Student Affairs by providing personalized and innovative career education to empower student success and transformation.

Our vision is for all UNC–Chapel Hill students to create lives of purpose and prosperity in alignment with their personal goals.

Services for both undergraduate and graduate students include workshops one-one-one meetings, full- and part-time job and internship opportunities online (Handshake); CliftonStrengths and other assessments; and many print and electronic resources.  Our programs include career panels and fairs, industry nights, and law school exploration day. Services are limited to students in a UNC–Chapel Hill degree or certification program and alumni who have graduated within six months.

Students in law, dentistry, and medicine and students enrolled in the M.B.A. and M.A.C. programs are served by career services in their departments, rather than by UCS.

Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
