Soaring Partners

Increase your organization’s visibility by becoming a Career Center Corporate Sponsor!

The Soaring Partners Program supports the UNCW Career Center, one of the most utilized services on campus. With an enrollment of over 16,000, the university offers a comprehensive four-year approach to career counseling and uses industry leading assessment tools to help students search for jobs, develop professional interview skills and network with employers.

In summer 2018, the Career Center made the transition from our former online career portal SeaWork to Handshake. The transition to Handshake represents a significant milestone in the continuing evolution of our office and the way in which we deliver services to our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and you, the employers who choose to recruit here at the UNCW. In the 2017-2018 academic year, the Career Center made over 12,000 student contacts. We increased Career Fair attendance by nearly 250% from the previous year, and hosted 22 educational/networking events which included two major career fairs. We also held nearly 4,000 career counseling sessions, and served over 400 students selected for on-campus interviews.

To continue these great programs and others, the Career Center relies on support from employers. To join the Soaring Partners Program, register with Rebecca Christiansen, the Associate Director for Employer Development, by phone at 910-962-3174 or by email at Christiansenr@uncw.edu.

The Career Center offers three levels of annual* sponsorship. Each one offers partners like you the opportunity to support UNCW programs while increasing your company’s visibility among our students, faculty and staff.
