Career Development

Career Development logo

Our professional staff assists students in identifying and clarifying career objectives through assessment and coaching. We teach skills and strategies for conducting a successful job search including resume and cover letter writing and mock interviews. We also provide resources to assist students in finding professional positions. Students are encouraged to begin the career planning process from the beginning and continue to utilize the career resources throughout their years at the University of Mount Olive.

College Central Network is our FREE online recruiting system for students and alumni job hunters, and for employers searching for outstanding candidates. Students and alumni register to search job and internship postings, upload resumes and portfolios, and access job search resources. Employers can register to post positions and search a database of resumes and portfolios.
