Meet the UNT Career Coaches

The UNT Career Coaches are highly trained professionals that support students and alumni at every point in their career journey. The Career Coaches meet with students and alumni one-on-one and in small and large groups to assist them with:

  • Self-discovery and the career decision-making process.
  • Writing an effective resume, CV, and cover letter.
  • Preparing for interviews and networking with employers.
  • Strategies for launching a successful internship or job search.
  • Applying to graduate school and other post-graduation endeavors.

The Career Coaches work with specific populations of students and alumni.
