Appointments: Career Resources Near You

The UNC Office of Career Services suggests that alumni who graduated more than three years ago connect with career development resources in their local area, either by scheduling appointments with paid professional career counselors, or through on-site visits at local workforce centers. 

The Colorado Career Development Association (CCDA) is a state affiliate of the National Career Development Association(NCDA), and a division of the Colorado Counseling Association. The CCDA exists to connect professional career counselors to those who have a need in workforce development. Click and connect with a CCDA career counselor. 

The State of Colorado works to serve you by providing Workforce Centers across the state. Workforce Centers provide a variety of free services to assist job seekers in connecting with their next career. These services include: job listings, career counseling and training, and computer and internet access. Click and find the Workforce Center in your area. 

 

Introducing Handshake

FOR STUDENTS & RECENT GRADUATES

Handshake is the new online portal from UNC Career Services replacing Bears Career Connection. Handshake allows students and recent graduates to search for and apply to positions and schedule in-person appointments with UNC's professional career counselors, and invites employers and recruiters to post career opportunities.

Handshake requires an active URSA account for students and recent graduates (graduated less than four years ago) who are seeking employment positions and/or counselor appointments.  UNC URSA accounts remain active three years after graduation and may be reactivated for alumni who graduated three or more years ago. Contact career.services@unco.edu for assistance.
