Onboarding Program

Welcome to the UNT Logistics Student Onboarding Program! This program began in Fall 2013, and is the brainchild of the Logistics Center Board of Directors members. Board members expressed the need for students to gain additional soft skills that will help them “hit the ground running” and be able to contribute to an organization more quickly, be it during an internship or a regular full-time job placement. These skills help set UNT Logistics students apart from their competition in the marketplace for jobs and promotions.

The program takes place on select Fridays, from 12:00-1:00pm, with corporate representatives facilitating lectures and workshops on topics such as:

  • Make the impression – Effective interpretation and presentation of analyses
  • Networking and relationships – Cultivating, building, and sustaining
  • Dress for Success
  • Communication – Verbal and written, effective presentations
  • Social media – How to use effectively
  • Where do I fit in at my new company? Dealing with generation gaps
  • Interviewing from an employer’s standpoint/How to prepare for a behavioral interview
  • Advanced Excel
  • Mentoring – Formal and informal/Career paths

Students must RSVP to attend these sessions. After completing four program sessions students will receive their Logistics Onboarding certificate through the Center for Logistics Education & Research which is a great addition to a resume!
