Welcome UNT Alumni!
As UNT alum, you are welcome to continue using the services and resources of the UNT Career Center for free. This is a lifetime service to you as a graduate of UNT. You are able to access the same services as any currently enrolled student. We are here to assist you whether just starting your job search or are thinking about a career change. Your connection to UNT does not have to end just because you graduated.
Career Advising (e.g., consulting and/or coaching on topics such as professional development, work-place communication, conflict management, career transitions, career research, resume preparation, networking, interview preparation, negotiation, social media etc.)
Alumni Career-Advising Appointments
If you would like to meet for an individual or group career-advising appointment for alumni with an industry-specific career advisor of the UNT Career Center, please call (940) 565-2105, email the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up for one of the available times in the Eagle Network.*
Self-Assessment Instrument Administration and Interpretation
If you are interested in completing a psychometric-measurement instrument (e.g., Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Strong Interest Inventory®, etc.) and having your personality, career-interests, skills-confidence, conflict-modes, and/or other scores and related careers interpreted for you, please schedule a career-advising appointment by calling (940) 565-2105 or emailing the Center email@example.com. This service costs between $15.00 and $35.00 per instrument, depending on the instrument you complete, for the price of the Counseling Psychologists Press report you will receive.
Building your network can be done by connecting with professors, other campus offices/departments, attending conferences, organization meetings, and job fairs, collaborating on a project, and much more! Collect business cards from everyone you meet and take a few notes so that you will always remember where/when/how you met that person.
When speaking of networking, it is also imperative that LinkedIn is mentioned. LinkedIn is a great website where you can keep a public profile or resume of each job you’ve held, detailed descriptions about your experience and skills, and it is also the best and most professional place to connect with your network. Send a quick, personalized, invitation on LinkedIn to those you meet as you build your network.

Twitter, so long as it is strictly a professional account, can also be a great place to connect with professionals, stay up to date on current trends in your field, and also search for jobs.
Remember to continue to always build and grow your network as often times, these people will be the key to helping you in your job search.
Conducting Industry/Employer Research
One of the biggest complaints that we often hear from employers is that interview candidates are not doing enough research about the job and/or company prior to the interview. Conducting research prior to your interview is important to show that you are knowledgeable about the position and company and also shows that you’re genuinely interested.

Your role could be as simple as answering questions from students via e-mail or personally meeting with a student or students aspiring to obtain a career similar to yours.
Mentor Match-is a database of alumni who have volunteered to assist UNT students with their career development questions via e-mail correspondence.

Mentor-On-Duty-The Career Center has designated a handful of days throughout the academic year to host "Mentors on Duty." The Mentor on Duty program is a small commitment of time and allows students the opportunity to meet one-on-one for 15-30 minutes with an alumni or employer in an occupation of interest. As a Mentor on Duty, you'll answer questions of the students, provide insight and share advice.
