I’ve visited the University Career Center many times since my freshman year at UNC Charlotte to figure out what area I am most interested in and where I belong. They helped me to find an internship that allowed me to improve the skills I possess and learn the skills I should acquire. It was the best way of finding out what I like and what career areas I should pursue. Through my internship I was responsible for: --Securing new clients through daily cold calls --Quantifying my results by meeting deadlines each week --Organizing my daily work through Excel spreadsheets
These responsibilities taught me everyday skills I know I will need in the future. They now help me out with my new position here in the UCC as a Peer Career Assistant. I’m thrilled to now be able to help other students use the UCC to their best advantage to gain the experience and knowledge needed for a successful future. I cannot express enough how helpful, friendly, and dedicated the UCC staff is. There is no better experience than being thrown into the real-world with people there to guide you and advise you along the way. I’m very grateful for the opportunities they led me to!
