Employers

One of the most important parts of the Career Services Office’s (CSO) mission is to connect students with employers.   This is accomplished through on-campus interview programs, regional and national job fairs, maintaining an online job bank database, and organizing resume collections.

When recruiting our students through either the on-campus interview or resume collection program, we ask that you complete our Recruiting Request Form as well as provide us with a copy of your office resume and your completed National Association for Law Placement (NALP) form if you are a member.

Our law school is centrally located among the state’s seven law schools if you plan to visit any of these schools, we will coordinate your visit to our campus.

We hope that your office will choose to recruit at North Carolina Central University.  If you have any questions about any of our programs, please contact Stephanie Troy Williams, Career Services Manager at 919-530-7701 or via email at: stroy@nccu.edu.  We look forward to hearing from you soon.

On-Campus Interviews (OCI)
It is with great pride that we invite you to visit our campus to interview second and third year students through our on-campus interview program.  The resumes of students interested in your office will be submitted to you two weeks prior to your scheduled date. While we discourage pre-screening, it is allowed.  Pre-screen results should be received by our office at least one week prior to the interview date to allow ample time to arrange the interview schedule.

Resume Collection
If you are unable to participate in our on-campus program, you may choose to participate in our resume collection program.  Our office will collect resumes per your request, and forward them to you.  You will then be able to contact each student individually regarding interview arrangements or you may contact us to arrange an interview via video conference.

Job Fairs
Each year, our students have the opportunity to participate in a number of job fairs as they seek employment.

The Southeastern Minority Job Fair, held in Atlanta, Georgia, affords students the opportunity to interview with approximately 120 employers from across the country.

The Equal Justice Works Job Fair, held annually in Washington, D.C., provides an opportunity to interview with approximately 75 public interest employers from across the country.

The North Carolina Small Employer Job Fair, held each year in a western and eastern location in the State, is presented by a consortium of the law schools in North Carolina in conjunction with the North Carolina Bar Association.

Additional job fairs to which students are invited include:

  • DuPont Minority Job Fair
  • Delaware Minority Job Fair
  • Cook County Bar Association Minority Job Fair
  • CyberLaw Recruitment Conference
