Get Onboard!


New Employee Welcome Seminar

In this interactive online seminar, you'll have the opportunity to connect with your new employee cohort to share work-from-home strategies, identify ways to expand your Seahawk network, and learn more about working at UNCW. This 2-hour seminar is required for all recently-hired permanent UNCW employees who have not yet attended an in-person version of New Employee Orientation. 

When is it?

The New Employee Seminar will be hosted on an as-needed basis until we return to campus. You will receive an Outlook invitation from your Onboarding Specialist, Melissa Cox, at least one week prior to the scheduled seminar. 

Where will it take place?

This interactive seminar will take place on Zoom. There will be a link to join in the Outlook invitation you receive from Melissa Cox. If it's your first time using Zoom, we recommend taking the following steps prior to the seminar:

  1. If possible*, please plan to join using a laptop with microphone and camera capabilities – online seminars work best when we can see and hear everyone!
  2. Make sure you’ll be in a place with reliable internet access.
  3. Check to make sure that your computer system is adequate by running a Zoom test call. This can also help you proactively fix any technical difficulties you may encounter.
  4. Join the Zoom class on time so that we can have a prompt start and take advantage of our entire time together.

*If you don’t have a microphone and/or camera, or you don’t have a laptop you can use, then please try one of the following alternatives:

  • Join the meeting through the Zoom app on your cell phone, OR
  • Join the meeting from your computer and call the phone number listed in the Outlook invitation so that you can fully participate.
