EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Sept. 11, 2023) – Year after year, students at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University are sought by large and small, domestic and international companies, corporations and programs to fulfill positions of need. The annual career fair is a main recruitment avenue. The Office of Career Services (OCS) at N.C. A&T will host the 49th Career Fair Wednesday, Sept. 13, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Additionally, a virtual career fair will be held Thursday, Sept. 28, from noon to 5 p.m.
