Center for Career Readiness

The Center for Career Readiness builds bridges between students and the world of work to ensure that UNC students make informed and empowered decisions regarding continued education and career. We provide a student-driven approach to career education that challenges systematic inequities, invites exploration embedded in identity and values, and fosters collaboration with employers and the campus community.

"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."
