  • UMO Job Network (through the College Central Network)
UMO Job Network provides a powerful, 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


There are three particular opportunities for career fair participation through the Eastern North Carolina Career Alliance (ENCCA) consortium. These are excellent opportunities to talk with employers located throughout the eastern part of the state about job openings, career opportunities, and hiring processes, and with graduate schools about program information and application procedures. 

The ENCCA organizers have very specific requirement for participation.  Anyone interested in attending must register.  Contact the University of Mount Olive Career Services (rfrancis@umo.edu) for additional questions.
