Fisher University Union 2035
Career Express lane
Mon - Thurs, 2 - 4 p.m.
Have a simple question for us? Need a quick resume or cover letter checkup? Career Express Lane may be right for you. Career Express Lane is for “one item” and is not meant to last for an extended period of time. If we feel your particular needs should require an appointment, or if you have a series of questions that will require more time and exploration, we will schedule one for you.
Meet the Staff
The UNCW Career Center is a comprehensive career counseling and resource center dedicated to empowering students and alumni as active participants in their own career development. Through career exploration and experiential opportunities, students are motivated to expand their knowledge of themselves and the world of work in a dynamic global community.
The Career Center encourages exploration of students’ work values, interests, skills and personality as it relates to academic and career planning. With Career Center resources, professional knowledge and support, students become responsible for their transition to productive academic endeavors and satisfying employment. The mission is accomplished through collaboration with students, faculty, staff, local, regional and national employers and the community. Through the use of emerging technology, the Career Center enhances outreach efforts to engage and consistently inform students about current developments in an ever-changing job market.
Students can access the services and resources of the UNCW Career Center in the University Union Room 2035, 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday, during the regular academic year or use our special drop-in hours for quick questions every Monday through Friday, 2-4:30pm.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Provisions of FERPA allow universities to release "directory" information about students without further permission. FERPA defines "directory" information as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, honors and awards, dates of attendance, degrees received, and the most recent previous educational institution attended. UNCW Career Center may release such information to employers seeking interns, part-time or full-time employees. Students may request that UNCW not release directory information about them by completing a "Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information" form in the Office of the Registrar.
By posting resumes and other documents in UNCW SeaWork , students thereby grant the Career Center the right to disclose those documents to employers.
