For Students

Get hands on, prove it, and get the job!

           

Career Connect helps you get the most out of experiential learning opportunities like internships, volunteer projects and other skill-building activities during your time at UNT. The Career Connect e-Portfolio helps you document your work and track the skills you are gaining by reflecting on these experiences. With the ePortfolio, you are able to showcase the interesting stories and important skills you've developed for employers and graduate schools. Throughout your time with Career Connect, you can earn badges and build credentials based on your activities inside and outside of the classroom. By the time you graduate, you will have a collection of real-world experiences that result in marketable skills for any career you choose. Don't just get experience, prove it!

Examples of some of these experiential learning activities include: 

Class internships

Non-credit internships

Study Abroad

Service learning projects

Capstone experiences

Course projects

Volunteer projects

Student groups

Research endeavors

Student employment

Virtual collaboration

Creative endeavors

You can also record the experiences you pursue on your own in the ePortfolio by following the self submission steps. We know many of you independently get real world experiences, so we want you to be able to include these in your ePortfolio as well. Simply follow the steps below...

You may add any number of projects or experiences that you would like to the e-portfolio. We focus on Career Connect experiences to showcase your skills, but you are able to build your e-portfolio in the way that best showcases your work and builds your personal brand. Any experience which can be verified by a supervisor is eligible to become a Career Connect experience (internship, volunteering, etc.). If you would like to submit one of your experiences as a Career Connect eligible experience, you may do so through the self-submission process. Instructions for this process may be found in the video below. 


In order to follow the process in the video, you will need the following code: 6bbfff1.
