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."

As a freshman, I went on a company trek to the Carolinas Healthcare System University Hospital just down the road on North Tryon and met professionals from various units, such as maternity, cardiology, emergency and volunteer services. I spoke with the volunteer coordinator and got her contact information as well as information regarding the application process. The fall of my sophomore year, I volunteered at the telemetry unit a few days a week. Since work and volunteer experience are considered for admission into the nursing program here at UNC Charlotte, I included those volunteer hours in my application. As a current nursing student, I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to develop relationships with the nurses, nurse aides, and staff at CHS University and be exposed to a healthcare environment as I aspire to work in that type of setting in the future.
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.
My experience with the UCC has been phenomenal! Beginning from the career advising sessions, the resume critique to the mock interviews, every program is specifically tailored to help me become a marketable, well-rounded professional. One program that was essential to developing professionalism and my brand was the Professional Clothes Closet program. The program helped me to discover and develop my brand, learn how to professionally sell my skills, and taught me how to dress for success. During the program, I was also able to receive professional clothing, which propelled my success for my upcoming interviews. I have recently accepted a job as a sales manager at Autozone Inc. and I am excited to continue developing my brand within the workplace.
