Alumni Career Mentors and Employers

Building the Bear Network

The Bear Network is an ever growing network of alumni and friends who provide advice and insight, connect prospective students to UNC, and hire current students and alumni in companies across the United States. Alumni career advisors and employers are integral to building and expanding the Bear Network through their involvement and advocacy.

Put this network to work for you by attending online and in-person career events, connecting on LinkedIn, volunteering with an alumni group in your area, or by posting or finding a job through the Center for Career Readiness


Bears Hire Bears

Join the growing group of alumni who recruit fellow UNC Bears to fulfill their workforce and talent needs. Whether you're looking for entry level talent by hiring a recent graduate or want to tap into the experience of more seasoned alumni professionals, we want to help you put the UNC Bear Network to work. Opportunities exist to recruit talent through the UNC Bear Network or on-campus resources in the career center.
