Classroom Integration and Workshops

The Career Center collaborates with faculty across campus to bring career development into the classroom. We provide informative and engaging workshops for students, which focus on identity development, self-reflection, meaningful decision-making, and goal-setting, along with traditional career topics (resumes, cover letters, personal statements, job search, etc.). Student organizations can also request presentations and visits from Career Center professionals. Request a presentation here.

Upcoming Events and Connections

The Career Center regularly brings employers to campus to connect with UNC Asheville students through large events like NextFest and smaller events including tabling. Students can view our events in Handshake and below. Employers who would like to visit campus can visit the employer page for details. Alumni who have set up an alumni email address can access all Career Center services and events.
