"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."

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.

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.
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.
Major: International Business & Marketing Analytics
