Students can use InterviewPrep, an outline platform that allows students to practice their interviewing skills at any time. Students are able to select interview questions related to their major or general interest and record responses. New users will need to set up a new account on Interview Prep.

Now is the season when some students receive job offers for internships, co-ops or full-time opportunities. In some cases, students receive multiple offers, which can present a challenging decision.

If weighing multiple offers, students should always request additional time to make a decision, if needed. It is recommended that students contact their “first choice” employer about their candidacy, indicate they have other offers to consider and inquire about the employer’s timeframe. Students should make the best decision for their career and personal needs without undue pressure or stress.

Kindly notify all pending employers as soon as possible once a decision has been made to enable employers to reach out to other candidates. Students should withdraw from the interview process once they have accepted a job offer with an employer.

Do Not Rescind Job Acceptance

It is NOT appropriate to accept an offer and then continue with job searching. Once you have accepted a job offer, you should withdraw from all interviews and inform other employers for which you remain a candidate that you no longer wish to be considered for the position.

Professional circles are small and memories are long. It is unprofessional and unethical to accept a job offer with the intent of rescinding your acceptance.

OCS celebrates and honors women who have made history here at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University. Among them are:

  • Zoe Barbee, an English and humanities professor at North Carolina A&T. She was active in local community organizations and became the first African American and first woman to be elected a commissioner of Guilford County, winning her race in 1974.
  • Alma Morrow was a librarian for A&T from 1935 to 1957, assisting a generation of Aggies in finding the resources they needed for classwork necessary to complete their degrees. Morrow Hall and Alma Morrow Drive are named for her.
  • Frances Grimes was the first woman to earn a bachelor’s degree from A&T, receiving her degree in 1901. She taught at schools in Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina.
