Post-grad life can be intimidating for many. From being sent into the “real world,” to being expected to find an “adult job,” changes are being thrown at newly-grads left and right. Luckily, the UNT Career Center offers a variety of resources to make this transition smoother and prepare students for success after leaving university life. Although the Career Center is mainly utilized by current UNT students, UNT alumni have the opportunity to use the Career Center for the rest of their life, even after their time at UNT comes to a close. Here are seven resources the Career Center offers to set students up for their career:

  1. Free Business Cards

UNT offers students with the opportunity to get a set of 60 free business cards per semester by choosing from one of two pre-made templates, with a typical turnaround time of five days. To submit orders, students can visit the Career Center website and fill out the Qualtrics request form.

2. Career Coaches and Internship Specialists

The Career Center offers career coaching for students seeking advice with major selection, resume writing, interview tips and job or internship searches. Career coach or internship specialist meetings can be scheduled on the UNT Career Center website for students of any major and classification.

3. Suit Up Closet

The Suit Up Closet is sponsored by the Career Center, and it provides students with the opportunity to rent business professional clothing for free for up to one week at a time. This is helpful for students who want to prepare for interviews, internships or career fairs without having to break the bank. Students wanting to rent clothing can schedule an appointment for pickup by emailing suitup@unt.edu.

4. Mean Green Mentors

Mean Green Mentors is a newly-introduced program by the Career Center, in collaboration with the UNT Alumni Association. Mentors are able to share advice about the career world and provide guidance for students interested in certain fields, and mentees can meet regularly with their mentors to learn from and grow with them. Individuals interested in becoming a mentor or mentee can visit meangreenmentors.unt.edu.

5. Career Fairs

The Career Center holds semesterly career fairs to allow students to network and get to know potential employers within their fields. The next all-majors career fair will be held virtually on March 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pre-registration is required through the Career Center website, and registration allows students to secure a spot and see the employers who will be present. It is recommended that students bring an updated copy of their resume to share with employers. Aside from all-major career fairs, specific colleges also hold their own career fairs that are honed in on those majors. Check the Career Center website regularly to stay in the loop on when your college will be holding a career fair.

6. Resume and Cover Letter Samples

On the Career Center website, students can find examples of resumes and cover letters that they can follow along with when putting together their job application. Following a template is helpful for ensuring you have everything you need on your documents before submitting them to potential employers. You can also see page three of this career guide for a resume example and tips.

7. Campus Employment

There are currently more than 5,000 students employed by UNT through hourly jobs, work-study positions and internships. The Career Center helps students with onboarding and gathering documents in order to make transitions to new positions go smoothly. Students can search and apply for campus jobs on Handshake.
