Alumni Career Success and Support
Connect Your Career to the UNC Bear Network
UNC's Bear Network is the global community of more than 130,000 alumni and friends representing different cities, different class years, and different careers. Connect to the Bear Network through a regional alumni group, alumni employer or alumni career advisor to launch and advance your career after UNC. For alumni looking to give back, the Bear Network provides an opportunity to support the career success of fellow Bears through volunteering, on-campus recruiting, and network development.
Prepare and Connect
Students and graduates less than 3 years out can access career services through UNC's Center for Career Readiness. Alumni retain career development services through alumni relations staff.
Advise and Recruit
Get involved by hiring fellow Bears, post open positions on Handshake, connect your professional network to UNC, and share your career expertise with fellow Bears.
The Job, Internship and Graduate School Fair and the K-12 Educator Employment Day are hosted by the Center for Career Readiness each semester in an effort to connect students with local and national employers. You can register for these events as a job seeker or recruiter.
