Job Posting Policies

Employers can easily post opportunities for NC State students and alumni via ePACK . Organizations may request an account & post a job in a single step, and approval typically takes between 48-72 hours. Note: Employer account approvals may take up to 10 business days. ePACK 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-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 or full-time one semester during spring or fall. 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.
