All UNT students and alumni can access virtual services and remote opportunities available through the Career Center and highlighted below to assist in achieving their career goals. The Career Center is continuing to expand the virtual programs and offerings so check back frequently.
Career Coaching and Internship Advising Meetings
UNT Career Coaches and Internship Specialists are available for one-on-one coaching/advising sessions with students and alumni. Staff is available in-person and by phone, Zoom, and email. When scheduling an appointment online, please indicate if you would like an in-person, phone, email or Zoom meeting. Current students can schedule an appointment through Navigate, and alumni can schedule an appointment through Handshake.
To find your Career Coach or Internship Specialist, select the Career Community for the College or School associated with your major. (If you don’t know which College or School to select, you can find it in the UNT Degree Programs list.) Once you access your Career Community, scroll down and your Career Coach and Internship Specialist will be listed in the right-hand column. Click the green button to access their contact information.
If you don’t have time for a Career Center appointment, then Quick Chats are for you. Hours are: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10:00AM to Noon; Tuesday and Thursday, 1:00 to 3:00PM. To speak with a Career Ambassador by phone or Zoom during Quick Chat times, use Navigate. For an in-person meeting during Quick Chat times, come to Sage Hall, Suite 202. Services provided during Quick Chats include resume writing and edits, cover letter drafting and edits, interview help, Zoom tech checks, LinkedIn headshots and more.

There are also recorded workshops and “how to” videos offered by the Career Center staff that can be accessed at your convenience. Plus, there are additional video resources on the career topics students ask about most frequently.
Virtual career fairs are a great way for students and alumni to connect with employers who are hiring for internships and post-graduation positions. The fairs are hosted on a virtual recruiting platform and no special equipment is required. All you need is an internet connection. Currently, there are several virtual career fairs scheduled that are sponsored by the Career Center. In addition, there are a number of employers that are hosting virtual networking events, and some of these events are marketed by the employers as career fairs. Tips on how to prepare for a virtual career fair are available on the Virtual Events, Videos and Resources page.
Employer Information Sessions
