University Career Center Launches Hire-A-Niner
The University Career Center has launched Hire-A-Niner, a new online system with a host of advanced features designed to connect UNC Charlotte students and alumni with employers.
Students and alumni can use Hire-A-Niner to connect to more than 7,000 positions each year, including full-time-jobs, 49erships (internships), co-ops, and part-time jobs. New features for students and alumni include a built-in resume creator, resource library, hire reporting, and online career tools, such as Going Global and CareerSpots. Students can log in to Hire-A-Niner using their NinerNet credentials, making access to the system quick and easy. Additional features will be rolled out over the next year, including faculty accounts and career fair registration.
The University Career Center’s Director, Denise Dwight Smith, shares, "Hire-A-Niner exemplifies the focus of our office on supporting the diverse needs of students and employers. By implementing this new system, we will continue to enhance our programs and services related to full-time employment, experiential learning, off-campus student employment, service learning, and mentoring and shadowing."
UrbanEden Among Favorites in Statewide Competition
UNC Charlotte’s UrbanEden, built for the 2013 U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, placed third in the people’s choice voting for the annual Matsumoto Prize for Modernist residential design in North Carolina. People’s Choice Award winners were selected by 1,200 individuals in an online vote.
The Matsumoto Prize is named in honor of George Matsumoto, a founding faculty member at the N.C. State University School of Design (now College of Design) who is well known for many exemplary mid-century Modernist houses he designed across North Carolina.
Faculty and students from three different areas, the School of Architecture, the Lee College of Engineering and the Belk College of Business, comprised the UrbanEden design and construction team. Support for the designing and building of the house came from a broad array of University units, as well as many private and corporate funders, including Duke Energy and Ingersoll Rand.
