Career Services

NC State’s overall approach to education has long stood for excellence in combining an understanding of theoretical principles with practical, hands-on instruction and exposure to career settings. For example, our environmental science undergraduate program provides you with laboratory and field experience, offer numerous opportunities for internships, student projects, and support student organizations where you can make valuable career and peer contacts. All NC State colleges maintain recruiting programs that link employers with graduating students — their services can help you identify potential jobs as you approach graduation.

These sources of career support are augmented by NC State’s campus-wide services and on-line tools for students seeking career placement assistance, information on job opportunities and guidance regarding major and career decisions:
