We hope that you join us for many of our live programs and events for professional development. We also know that sometimes you need to work on career materials, skill-building, and information gathering at all times. Check out this Canvas page (current students will be able to self-enroll at this link) for professional development resources you can access any time!
Niblock Student Center Guide
The Niblock Student Center Guide is a competency-based academic & career development guide for your Belk College of Business experience. This guide contains information, resources, and a year-by-year checklist to help you master career-ready competencies.
Hire-A-Niner is the campus system used for internship and job postings as well as online career resources. Students can set up their account and access the system at https://hireaniner.uncc.edu/ using their NinerNet credentials.
In order to apply for internships and full-time jobs students must have an approved resume uploaded to their Hire-A-Niner account. The approval process takes up to 48 business hours. Students should make sure to submit their resume early so that it will be approved prior to internship or job submission deadlines.

Excel proficiency is a very valuable skill to employers, in every major. Use these modules as a precursor or follow-up to your INFO 2130 course.
Consider building your skillset and professional knowledge with a micro-internship. These are short-term, paid, professional assignments that could give you insight into internships or entry-level jobs within your field of study.
Current undergraduate business students are encouraged to prepare for interviews, especially virtual interviews, using Big Interview. You have the opportunity to build STAR (situation, task, action, result) answers for common behavioral questions, to practice interview questions for specific industries and jobs, and to reflect on your own virtual presentation skills.
