Faculty Services

Faculty and staff partners are a crucial part of helping facilitate career development at UNCA. The Career Center actively seeks opportunities to better support faculty and staff in and out of the classroom. Below are just a few ways that faculty can leverage Career Center resources and support.

Classroom Presentations/Workshops

The Career Center is happy to offer a wide range of classroom presentations and workshops that faculty can request. This is a great option if you want to incorporate a guest speaker, special topic, or have a day where you can’t attend class.

Big Interview

For incorporating interview practice into the classroom, the Career Center offers access to Big Interview. This is a platform where students can practice interviewing and receive immediate feedback through the use of AI. One of the great features about Big Interview is that assignments can be created and given to groups of students. If you are interested in learning more about Big Interview or how you can use it in your classes, please email us at career@unca.edu and we can help you login and set up your assignments.

Curriculum Integration

Many UNCA faculty consider a wide range of ways to integrate career into their course curriculum. Below are a few strategies that other faculty have used:

  • Extra credit for attending Career Center events and workshops
  • Visiting the Career Center during class
  • Assignments requiring resume or cover letter review by the Career Center
