A graduating senior gets face time with a recruiter for a national company hiring new graduates during an on-campus interview session. During the 2006-07 academic year, 365 companies participated in on-campus interviews at the University Career Development Center.

Turning our graduates into your leaders

Hands-on research. Real-world exposure. Application of technology and an understanding of cutting-edge issues. Strong communication skills and an appreciation of discovery. These are the hallmarks of an NC State graduate and highlights of an NC State education.

NC State graduates are among the best-trained and sought-after employees in the nation. They leave our campus prepared and well rounded, adaptable, aware of their abilities and with enough on-the-job experience to be confident that the field they have chosen is the right one for them—and one in which they can contribute immediately upon graduation.

Our efforts to produce graduates who meet the needs of the 21st century is evident in an active campus recruiting program that helps potential employers identify NC State graduates who best meet hiring criteria. The University Career Development Center can help you set up on-campus interview sessions for full-time jobs and internships, or arrange for employer information sessions that give you the opportunity to present information about your organization throughout the academic year.

NC State supports one of the largest for-credit undergraduate job co-op programs in academia today — visit our Cooperative Education Program for information about creating an experience for NC State students in your organization.
