I participated in a mock interview with KPMG. This mock interview allowed me to get practice with speaking to a professional recruiter. I was able to practice typical interview questions and receive feedback on my answers. This allowed me feel confident and comfortable in my interviews for my summer internships. I was able to land an internship with Bank of America in the FMAP program. Using the mock interview resource really helped me prepare for my interview.

I was applying for one of the most competitive business internships at UNCC and was so nervous. Being accepted to the Applied Technology Program was a huge goal of mine and would not have been able to achieve this goal without the career center. By doing a mock interview with the career center I was able to get my jitters and nerves out and get amazing feedback to improve my interview skills. I felt so confident during my interview in Bank of America and was offered a position in the internship program and I have the career center to thank for that.
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.

My experience working at Lowe’s this summer was tremendous. I learned so much about corporate America, how Lowe’s is structured and even a little about myself. During my time at Lowe’s I worked in the E-commerce department. Specifically, I worked on the testing team. I loved the culture that I experienced while working there. It was very professional but at the same time welcoming. Corporate America is very demanding and Lowe’s does a great job of making it feel like home. I was fortunate enough to be part of a great team that worked well together. I learned a lot about how Lowe’s goes to market using their website. I was taught all the systems they use on a daily basis. Finally, I got a new perspective about myself, and focused what I want to do when I graduate. I learned about what I would ultimately like to do in the future, and my summer at Lowe's was a primary driver of that future.
