Welcome all opportunity seekers! We are Unext: A service that aims to help every college student connect with employers of all sizes for a variety of opportunities. Unext was created because too many students lack connections to the professional world. We realized students were uneducated about career paths and uninformed about what these careers entail. Also, many students apply to jobs or internships without considering the culture or size of an organization. Not every student wants to work for a major corporation, so students can get connected to companies of all sizes.
On our site, students can apply for internships, job shadows, jobs, and other opportunities. With an increase in opportunities that employers can offer, every college student has a chance to get a better understanding of a career path and company’s culture. They can find a business that matches their personality which will boost job satisfaction.
We offer every student an equal chance to pursue opportunities regardless of their year in college. In order to pursue an opportunity, you need to register to Unext as a student using your school email. After you are registered, talk about your history/experiences in the “Resume” section located in “My Dashboard”. Then, fill out your availability in the “Schedule” section. If you think your resume could use some updating, talk with career services, or message Unext via email. We are here to help you succeed!
If you have an opportunity scheduled, congratulations! Since you will have an in-person interaction with an employer, it is important to present yourself in a professional manner. Before you meet, you should do additional research about the company and prepare a list of questions you want to ask. There are multiple topics to ask questions about such as the culture or values of the company, a specific role and the responsibilities of it, areas of your background/resume, and how the company measures success. By asking questions, you are initiating conversation and showing the employer you desire to learn.
