GREENSBORO – With the new school year, UNCG students will visit the Career Service Center (CSC) hoping to find part-time employment. The center aims to assist students in finding the most suitable employment position to accommodate their needs.

Each year the Career Service Center looks for diverse ways to advance the facility by adding different features.

“This year, the Center will seek to expand opportunities for students to connect with alumni and employers who can help them learn about various career paths and who have the ability to hire our talented students,” stated UNCG Career Service Director Nicole Hall. “We will also build upon the relationships that have been developed with the Colleges and the Professional Schools to offer programming through classes and events targeted to particular majors.”

The CSC allows any student to apply for employment and benefit from services provided, including resumé-building, major selection counseling, and career advising. 

“All students, pursuing any degree level, and alumni are eligible to apply for jobs through SpartanCareers,” Hall stated. “There are truly a variety of opportunities available to meet student interests.”

The CSC is considered an advocate of diversity due to its multicultural employment, with the Peer Career Ambassadors representing UNCG’s diverse student body.

“We have benefitted from taking advantage of various staff trainings including the programming provided through the Office of Intercultural Engagement,” Hall said. “We are fortunate that our staff members are diverse across many spectrums and that we have the unique opportunity to engage over 20 student leaders each semester to work as peer career ambassadors (PCAs) through our center. They play a critical role in our efforts to support student career development.”

Every year, the Career Service Center hosts events on campus to advertise different occupations. This year events include:

Fall Career Fair, 9/28, 10:00-2:00, Kaplan Center: Aimed towards undergraduate students seeking employment agencies and internships post-graduation,this event provides an opportunity to meet executives from various establishments. The Career Fair allows students to begin equipping themselves for careers after graduation. UNCG ID is required for registration.

Spring Career Fair, 3/1, 10:00-2:00, Location TBD: Similar to the Fall Career Fair, but takes place during the Spring semester, allowing students another opportunity to meet representatives from associations. UNCG student IDs are required.

Education Career Day, 3/15, 10:00-2:00, Cone Ballroom: Over 60 school systems in- and out-of state will attend, with executives looking for media specialists, K-12 school teachers, counselors, and nurses. Student ID and formal attire is required and entrance barred in cases of non-compliance.

In addition to these events, the school will also be hosting the annual Etiquette Dinner in the EUC from 5-7pm on November 10.

“The dinner gives students insights into business etiquette while allowing them to engage with representatives from local companies and administrators across campus,” CSC Director Nicole Hall said.

The center attributes partial success to its affiliations with other student organizations.

“We have developed relationships with a number of student organizations that allow our career programming to effectively reach students,” stated Nicole Hall.

Sessions with the CSC on the first floor of the Elliott University Center are available by drop-in hours or by appointment. A complete list of events are available on the CSC website.
