Alumni Career Programs

Got Career Questions?

An alumni career advisor may have the answer.

Alumni career programs pair students and recent graduates with alumni career advisors from a variety of industries and backgrounds.  Programs are designed for participants to network with alumni career advisors, gain industry insights and learn from the past successes and challenges of our advisors. 

The UNC Alumni Association offers two programs - Success Looks Like ME and UNC Connect.  Success Looks Like ME events are held each semester, while UNC Connect offers advising appointments and webinars online, all year long.

 

Success Looks Like ME

Success Looks Like ME events invite alumni career advisors back to campus for in person career panels and employer networking hours to help students gain insight from the diversity of success that follows a UNC degree.

Fall 2017 Events coming soon. 

UNC Connect powered by FirstHand

In his role, Konrad coordinates education, infrastructure, and community outreach opportunities for students to learn about sustainability. Konrad is an Army veteran and he and his wife recently became parents for the first time.
