University to Participate in School Tools Campaign

UNC Charlotte is joining with Classroom Central, Communities in Schools and WSOC-TV for the 18th annual School Tools Campaign, which is a drive to collect and distribute school supplies to children who need them. All supplies collected will be distributed through Classroom Central, a free store for teachers and Communities in Schools site coordinators.

The University’s campaign will be Friday, Aug. 1, through Friday, Aug. 15. Donation sites will focus on the collection of the following items: pens, pencils, crayons, markers, ruled notebook paper and pocket folders; however, all school supplies will be accepted. Collection bins will be available at many locations on campus, including Atkins Library, the Barnhardt Student Activity Center, EPIC, and Foundation.

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."
