Putting your Network to Work

Your career after UNC can take you anywhere - from an urban classroom in Denver, to a Broadway stage in New York City.  But no matter where life takes you, you'll always be a Bear and we'll always be here. Here to connect you to the advice, digital resources and programs which will help you launch (or relaunch) your career. Here when you're ready to celebrate your career success. Here when you're ready to help the next generation of Bears do the same. That's what we see as the professional power of your Bear Network.
