GREENSBORO, N.C. - North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will host the Annual Fall Career Awareness Fair on Wednesday.
This is the 43rd consecutive year.
The fair has consistently grown in both student and prospective employer attendance and this year is no exception
“This year’s fair continues to bring a record number of employers and that says a lot about the quality of the education available to students at the university,” said Joyce Edwards, executive director of Career Services.
University officials expect to welcome more than 600 representatives from more than 200 employers.

Top employers are expected, including Amazon, BMW Manufacturing Co., General Motors, IBM, Microsoft, SpaceX, and many more.
Some companies will also hold next-day interviews and industry-specific classroom visits for all majors.
“The interest that employers have to recruit our students to fill their hiring needs is confirmation that N.C. A&T is succeeding in preparing students to be competitive in a global work force," said Edwards.
University officials are encouraging students to attend workshops to prepare for the fair, including resume critique opportunities, networking sessions, and dress attire.
Even though the fair is primarily offered and available to currently enrolled N.C. A&T students and alumni, no four-year undergraduate or graduate student will be discouraged or prevented from attending.
The fair will be held from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Corbett Sports Center in Greensboro.
