Take Advantage of These 6 Career Center Services

Thursday, June 29, 2023
Beginning your professional journey can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Focused on supporting you from your first day as a Niner to when you are an alum, the Career Center is your campus partner in job searching and networking.

1. Find Employers on Hire-A-Niner
Hire-A-Niner is a student-focused portal for finding employers, on and off campus. The Career Center partners with Charlotte-area employers who are actively recruiting students to list open opportunities in one place, while also offering appointments and Career Center events.

2. Drop-in Hours

Forgot to make an appointment? In-person and virtual drop-in hours are available to students Monday-Friday. Drop-in hours are convenient for students who have a quick question or don't need to speak with a specific career coach.

3. IRIS Professional Photo Booth

Meet IRIS Professional Photo Booth, the newest service in the Career Center. This professional photo booth provides students with 3 photos sent directly to them with editing features. It is free and open to students and alumni, and available anytime the office is open. 

4. Practice Your Interview Etiquette
The Career Center helps to give you crucial feedback on your interviewing skills and resume through their interview prep program. Set up an appointment with a career coach to practice your skills for in-person, virtual, and phone interviews.
5. Get Interview Ready with the Professional Clothing Closet

Need professional attire for your interview? The Career Center has a professional clothing closet where students can find clothing appropriate for interviews, career fairs, and networking events. They also accept donations to the closet of unused and gently used business professional and business casual attire.
6. Attend a Career Meet Up with Fellow Niners

Want to join a community of Niners looking for similar career opportunities?  The Career Meet-Up Program allows students to learn from career coaches and industry professionals, with sessions ranging from general career-related to industry-specific topics. The small group setting allows students to network with their peers while still receiving answers to individual questions.
