Fall 2014 Participants:

To qualify, an eligible candidate:
- Must have an intellectual disability, severe physical disability, or psychiatric disability which makes the candidate eligible to use the Schedule A hiring authority (see explanation in the Schedule A Checklist for Candidates)
- Must be a US citizen
- Must be a current, full-time, degree-seeking, post-secondary student, unless they are taking a reduced course load due to a disability OR are in their final semester OR graduated after October, 2013
Students who meet all three criteria are invited to an information session on Monday, September 22, 2014, at 3:30pm in the Career Center, Chavis University Center, Suite 210.
If you eligible but unable to attend the information session, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Registration for the program must be completed by October 6th to qualify for interviews.
The staff members of the Career Center are committed to the promotion and affirmation of diversity in its broadest sense. Prejudice and discrimination on the basis of gender, ethnicity, race, age, physical and mental abilities, sexual/affectional orientation, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic class are counterproductive to the professional ethics to which we adhere. The staff members are challenged to reach out to traditionally under-served populations and become more thoroughly educated as well as to educate others about the career development issues of a pluralistic society.
The UNCP Career Center is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the professional association for college recruiters and career services professionals. As members, we abide by the NACE Principles for Professional Practice, a document that serves as the ethical framework and foundation for practices within the career services and recruiting fields.
The mission of the UNCP Career Center is to provide a comprehensive program of career development services for students and alumni. We achieve this mission by providing a variety of services and programs to ensure UNCP graduates develop the skills necessary to be successful in the job market. Both corporate and private donations will allow us to increase the number of programs and services we can provide.

The Career Quest Learning Community was developed to provide first-year students at UNC Pembroke with opportunities to explore career and major options in an environment focused on professional and personal growth. The purpose of Career Quest is to guide each student in the community though the process of beginning to develop an individualized, long-term career plan to ensure his/her future career success. Members take UNIV 1000 and UNIV 1050 together.
- Business Etiquette Dinner
Each spring semester, we hold a formal etiquette dinner led by a National Certified Business Etiquette Consultant. This very popular event and unique experience provides students with the dining etiquette knowledge required to be confident and successful during business meals and professional encounters.
Arrowhead Scholarship Recipient
"As a college freshman, I had procrastinated to apply for a scholarship. I resorted to The Career Center for some guidance of the requirements of the scholarship. It was surprising how fast and easy it was to contact them. I had the answer to my question through a quick search that was facilitated by them. I sent my resume and cover letter to The Career Center expecting only a grammar check. However, attached to my resume and cover letter were numerous comments and tips that had never crossed my mind when writing a resume or cover letter. They had not only improved my grammar, but my organization, my transition in ideas, and the presentation of my documents.
Through the exchange of a couple emails, my resume and cover letter went from an inexperienced freshman resume to a professional resume. They provided me with examples and websites that will later on be resourceful in creating any other resumes or cover letters. In the end, I got the scholarship and all thanks to the help of The Career Center! I recommend to everybody to take advantage of this fantastic resource we have on campus!"
