If you are a company in need of hiring an electrical or computer engineering student you have come to the right place! In an effort to streamline the student recruiting options we can provide to companies, the Department works closely with the NC State Career Development Center. All companies are asked to submit their open positions through the ePACK system. The system is free to employers to build a company profile and post available full-time, Co-Op and internship opportunities for students.
Open positions with our ECE Connections corporate partners will be exclusively shown on the departmental intranet sites for undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, these positions will be advertised on the department’s digital signage system in Engineering Building II. In coordination with the Career Development Center and through ePACK, we can make on-campus interviewing a simple process: employers can request interview dates, students can request to be considered for interviews, employers make selections of the best candidates meeting their criteria, and then students choose the best interview time for their schedules.
Don’t yet have an ePACK account? Sign up here! When posting positions, it is recommended that you provide as much detail as possible — these detailed positions, rather than the ones which simply point to a recruiting website, tend to receive a much better response from our students.
