The Office of New Student and Family Services will begin recruitment for the 2018 - 2019 Orientation Counselor staff starting September 7, 2017. Orientation Counselors (OCs) fulfill a critical role in helping new students and families transition to the UNC Charlotte campus. During your time as an OC you will gain skills in a variety of areas such as leadership, public speaking, team achievement and problem solving.

Successful OC candidates will exhibit the OC values of integrity, community, personal development, team achievement, leadership, and #NinerPride. Candidates must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA and want to work with incoming first-year and transfer students as well as parents, family members, and guests.
