University Career Services

University Career Services (UCS) provides information, career counseling and advising, interest assessment, 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.

Services for both undergraduate and graduate students include workshops on career planning, résumé writing, interviewing, networking, social media, and internship and job seeking; résumé mailing to employers; individual career counseling; on-campus interviewing; career assessments; full- and part-time job and internship vacancies online (Careerolina); a Web-based alumni networking database (Alumni Advisor Network); a reference file service (Interfolio); preprofessional advising; and many print and electronic resources. Additional resources and programs include occupational and employer information, career panels and fairs, networking nights, and law school exploration day. Some services are limited to students in a UNC–Chapel Hill degree or certification program who are within two semesters of graduation.

Students in law, dentistry, and medicine and students enrolled in the MBA and MAC programs are served by career services in their departments, rather than by UCS.
