Jeanette Hickl

My name is Jeanette Hickl and I am the Senior Associate Director for Assessment, Internships, Marketing, and Operations. What does that mean? I support the Internship Specialists as well as oversee our marketing and assessment efforts while ensuring that the team is able to operate at its best. I earned an M.S. in College Counseling from Radford University in Radford, Virginia, and a B.S. in Human Development with a concentration in Human Services from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. I like helping UNT students because she loves hearing about a student’s experience and ensuring UNT Career Center is helping students reach their career goals. When she is not at UNT, she is spending time with her husband and two dogs, working out, and trying new places to eat in Denton. As a native Virginian, I miss the water. So, if you have recommendations on lakes and beaches, let her know. The best piece of advice I received was, “If you do not like where you are, move. You are not a tree.” In a nutshell, others would describe me as nerdy, empathetic, and a fixer.

Want to learn more about what the UNT Career Center has to offer? Email Jeanette at jeanette.hickl@unt.edu.
