How to Support Your Student


You can support your student’s job search by helping to keep them motivated and on track with their career goals. Parents can play an important role by encouraging their students to:

arrowStart early

It’s never too soon to begin the career development process. Encourage your student to visit the Career & Professional Development website or stop by our office to determine first steps.

arrowBuild experience

Nearly half of our student body works while attending school. Securing an internship, volunteering, or pursuing a special school project are all effective ways to build up a resume.

arrowGet involved

UNCG offers a wide variety of campus activities to help students meet and network with alumni and employers who are hiring.

arrowLook the part

Investing in a business suit and professional attire for interviews and networking events makes a difference.

The first step of any successful job search is to map out where you’re headed. Our Career Roadmap includes all the important milestones to help prepare you to meet your career goals.
