Psychology, Child & Family Development
The staff at the University Career Center have connections in a wide range of industries, and they serve as a central place where employers and job seekers can find one another. The Job Location & Development Program was the most helpful to me in providing a searchable database of employers that wanted to hire UNC Charlotte students. It gave me a place to start looking. Their programs are a great way to network and discover opportunities you never thought to consider. You never know when the person you meet at a career fair or mock interview will be impressed by what they see and hire you one day. Seek out opportunities that appeal to you. I chose to leave student teaching and do the internship at Discovery Place instead. It added an extra semester to my education, but was the best field experience I had while at UNC Charlotte and opened many new doors.
In-House Education Intern - I assist in all areas of the museum, interacting with guests, maintaining exhibits, assisting with events, and developing and implementing programming. My job is to inspire wonder and encourage the guests to explore and ask questions. Basically, I am a big kid and get to play all day!
