Job Posting Policies


The Optimal Job Posting

Your Position Should have:

  • Clearly Defined Major(s) Selected.
    • If All Majors is selected, you will be asked to identify specific majors.
  • Relation to a Degree/Major Offered at NC State.
    • If your position does not relate to a degree/major offered at NC State, we recommend using ULoop or through our newspaper, the Technician
    • Positions cannot be petitions for training and possible placement or a competition.
  • A Detailed Description
    • It is important to have a detailed description for students to recognize your position’s attributes.
  • A Salary or Wage
    • Internships require a salary unless your organization is a registered non-profit.
    • Positions cannot be 100% commission or pay-per-piece based.
  • Valid Contact Information
    • Postings with residential addresses are not permitted.
    • Postings with non-dedicated email addresses are not permitted (e.g. @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, etc.).
  • Adherence to NACE Principles for Ethical Professional Practice


  • Use Automatic Application Packet Generation (AAPG)
    • This allows all of your requested documents to be combined into one readable PDF file.
  • Request for Resume and Additional Documents
    • These will be included in the AAPG PDF per student.
  • Display Contact Information to Students
    • This ensures that students are able to get in contact with you if desired.
  • Restrict Your Application
    • Through ePACK, you can restrict your options to students that meet certain criteria including skills, majors, and graduation dates.
    • Try to limit the amount of restrictions on your posting to maximize applicants.

Job Offers

Additionally, it is recommended that employers provide candidates a minimum of two weeks from the date of offer to evaluate the opportunity for both internships and full-time positions.  For Co-op positions, a window of at least five-business days is preferred. We also encourage employers to consider requests for additional time on an individual basis. Offers made to students for positions should be made in writing. Verbal offers should be followed with written offers via email or post.

Employers are expected to follow the guidelines established by NACE in this area. Click Here to learn more.
