Eric Green (he/him/his) – Career Coach
My name is Eric Green. I had the unique opportunity to attend Southeast Missouri State University where I obtained an undergraduate degree in Social Work. I decided to continue my education at Avila University graduating in 2018 with a master’s degree in Organizational Development Psychology. Currently, I am a Career Development Specialist and Career Coach assigned to serve Mayborn School of Journalism. A fun fact about me is that I absolutely love watching various news outlets just to critique, admire, and enjoy how content is delivered. I feel like I am a journalist at heart and that is why I am honored to serve students who are trying to work in after mentioned industries.
Describe a typical workday, tasks, and what you enjoy most about your job?
My typical day at the office is filled with important meetings with various stakeholders and external partners, one-on-one career advising appointments, and continuous planning and strategizing regarding impactful programing for Journalism and Media Art students. In addition, I have the opportunity to participate in various trainings and programs that other departments put on for personal and professional growth.
Describe the services you provide for UNT students.
I provide one-on-one career advising from career exploration advice to mock interviews and resumé help. You are able to schedule an appointment through Navigate, that has all our appointment services listed. I also provide tailored programs for our Journalism and Media Arts students.
Why do you believe students utilize the Career Center? What are the benefits?
I believe students utilize the career center for career path validation, information, and clarification. I think the two biggest benefits that a student could get from the utilization of the Career Center are the realization that career planning is just as important as academic planning and the exposure to various resources that could help along one’s career journey.
