On the hunt: with graduation looming, seniors look to Career Services for help

For college students, perhaps nothing is as daunting as finding a full-time job. There's no one clear path or magic formula, as recent graduates — and UNC Career Services can — tell you. That's why they're trying to offer a variety of tools and resources to help.

 At UNC, University Career Services consistently reports approximately 90% of alumni as either pursuing graduate studies or being employed full-time six months after graduation.
