High Point University HPU MelniczekHIGH POINT, N.C., June 18, 2013 – Eric Melniczek, career counselor in the Office of Career and Internship Services at High Point University, was recently honored with the Outstanding Professional Award at the North Carolina Association of Colleges & Employers’ (NCACE) annual meeting. The award recognizes significant contributions to the postsecondary career services and employment field by a member or former member of the association.

“As a professional speaker, author, consultant and career management professional, he (Melniczek) knows how to inform, entertain and inspire an audience,” says last year’s honoree Tim Stiles. “He has applied this skill to his work with students, parents, mid-level managers and C-suite executives and is passionate about connecting students for win-win relationships.”

During the award presentation, Stiles went on to review many of Melniczek’s accomplishments, most notably of which is his recent publishing of a book entitled “Transitioning to the Real World: A Guide to Navigating Your First Year Out of College.” He has also served the Blue Ridge Public Broadcasting System as a contributor to the Emmy Award-winning “JobQuest,” a live monthly television show assisting job seekers in Southwestern Virginia.

“I am honored to be considered by my colleagues in the industry as an outstanding professional,” says Melniczek. “It is a blessing to work with High Point University students, alumni, faculty and staff from a career planning and development role.”
