"The Center for Career Readiness has been a tremendous help throughout my time at UNC. I have received individualized assistance in constructing resumes and cover letters that allow me to fully demonstrate my skills and experience to employers. Engaging with the Center for Career Readiness has enhanced both my knowledge and abilities as a student and interviewee, empowering me to pursue my desired job and internship opportunities."
