NC State University and More Than Money Careers

Sustainability Careers Partnership

Connecting NC State students and alumni to impactful careers

                  

Presented by the NC State Poole College Sustainability Initiative, NC State Sustainability Office and NC State Net Impact Chapter

NC State is launching a new partnership to help mission-driven students and alumni get clear, get connected, get hired! Our new partner, More Than Money (MTM) Careers, has distilled over 40 years of best practices into an e-learning platform that will help you:

  1. Decide which well-paying career is a better fit for your skills and passions via 3 custom-made assessment tools,
  2. Identify jobs and internships before they are available on job boards, and
  3. Successfully apply and interview for opportunities that pay well, and fit your passions and the impact you want to have.

All NC State students and alumni have access at no cost to the More Than Money Careers. Use your ncsu.edu email address to log in. Explore the MTM Careers e-learning platform.

In April of 2014, More Than Money Careers co-founder Dr. Mrim Boutla visited NC State for a series of career development workshops. We anticipate offering another series of workshops in Fall 2014. Watch a video from the spring graduate student/alumni workshop.
