Job Posting Policies

Employers can easily post opportunities for NC State students and alumni via our ePACK database. Organizations may request an account & post a job in a single step, and approval typically takes between 48-72 hours. The ePACK database is intended as a resource for NC State students seeking high-impact, career-related opportunities that can be connected to degree programs offered at our institution.

Types of positions that can be posted in ePACK

Full list of job posting policies available here
  • Full-time entry level (0-3 years): these are jobs that a student would seek after completing their degree at NC State. Jobs should require a student to use the skills and experiences gained while in college, and relate to majors and degrees provided by NC State.
  • Full time experienced (3+ years): these are jobs that an alumnus of NC State would seek. Jobs should require a student to use the skills and experiences learned while in college, relate to majors and degrees provided by NC State, and require the student to have some level of work experience.
  • Internship: Internships are typically full-time, summer opportunities, but may also include part-time positions during the school year. Internships posted in ePACK must be paid unless they are for a non-profit agency or otherwise clearly meet the criteria under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
  • Co-op positions: please review our co-op program and contact an employer relations team member for more information. You must have a signed co-op agreement on file with NC State to post co-op positions.
  • Part time: these are jobs that a student would seek while completing their degree at NC State. Jobs should require a student to use the skills and experiences learned while in college, and relate to majors and degrees provided by NC State.
  • Temporary: Full-time entry level/experienced and part-time positions can be marked as temporary if they are time limited.

Tips for Posting in ePACK

Registering for an account

Please provide as many details as possible when registering for an account, and remember it takes 48-72 hours for your account to be approved, as we do review each request individually and research your organization.

Third party recruiters and staffing agencies are welcome to create accounts listing their employer as the organization, then post on behalf of the companies they may be working with. Please do not register as if you work for the company you are recruiting for.
Your job posting is often the first impression a student has of your organization. To attract a strong pool of candidates, we suggest a well-written job description—and special attention to these fields.

The ePACK system is a great way to find students for internships, co-ops, full-time jobs and career-related part-time jobs. This means the position requires major-related work experience or a degree. If your job does not meet these criteria, the NC State Career Development Center reserves the right to reject the posting.

  • A well-designed job posting will yield more qualified applicants for the position.
  • Job Function: Choose the type of work done in the posted job to maximize your hits in student searches.  You may select multiple categories if appropriate, however choosing all categories is not recommended.
  • Majors: It is required that you select the specific majors you are seeking for your position. Please do not select all majors.
  • Restrict Applications:  If you want to screen out students who do not meet the requirements you select, you must select ”Restrict Applications: yes”.  Choosing this option allows the system to screen applicants for you based on the criteria you enter but may reduce the number of applicants in your pool.
  • Posting date/Expiration date:  Jobs may be posted for a maximum of 60 days.  You will receive an automatic email before the job expires, and may easily re-post the position if you still would like to receive applications.
  • Salary level:  Do not leave this blank. Please indicate whether it is paid or unpaid. You can put an amount or use a recognized term like “competitive” or “based on experience”. Unpaid internships are strongly discouraged unless they clearly meet the FLSA criteria. Unpaid part-time or full-time jobs will be denied.
  • Graduation Date range: Recent graduates, current students, and alumni use ePACK; choosing recent graduation dates is advisable.
  • Resume Receipt: choose all of the options that you prefer
    • Email – will send student resumes to you via email as students apply
    • Accumulate Online- will allow students to submit their resumes via ePACK, you may log in to your account to view student applications at any time
    • Other – selecting this option will generate an additional field for you to enter additional application instructions, such as applying online to your company website
  • Automatic Application Packet Generation: Choose yes if you’d like student resumes to be sent to you in one packet when the job expires.
