I am an undergraduate student at UNC Charlotte studying English. In addition to meeting with my Career Advisor about my major, I went to a Career Meet Up where I learned about career options for English majors, which gave me greater understanding of the possibilities. I also attended the Inclusivity Mixer and met with a representative from Web.com, who offered me a job. I really enjoyed meeting with my Career Advisor because he helped me prioritize action steps to help me reach my career goals.
Big Interview helped me to realize that you need to come prepared to interview and always have an answer for anything. It taught me how to be able to take any story and apply it to different scenarios. It also helped me to reach my goal of being able to answer random prompt questions on the spot via the Interview Roulette feature.
Major: Political Science
I signed up through Hire-A-Niner with Enterprise. My mock interview went great. I received great feedback from Ms. Chelsey on how I can improve marketing myself and she also gave me the option of a possible job with the company.
Major: Public Relations
"I attended the Raleigh Career Trek to the EPA and NIH. At the Networking Night, I met the Acting Director in the Office of Research and Development of the EPA. He recommended that I look into the University of New Hampshire Sustainability Fellowship, a 10-week summer program in which Fellows research and carry out projects working with local partners. I applied and was selected for the 'Promoting a Zero Waste Culture on Campus' fellowship at UNH. This project allowed me to combine my Public Relations and Environmental Studies majors into one experience. I really enjoyed working in New Hampshire and becoming a part of the New England sustainability network. I would not have learned about this opportunity unless I had attended a Career Trek."
Major: International Business & Marketing Analytics
