Greensboro grads hunt for jobs

GREENSBORO, N.C.–Students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro graduated Friday inside the Greensboro Coliseum.

Organizations like Action Greensboro and Opportunity Greensboro work with the seven colleges and universities in the city to recruit college students to stay as young professionals.

Career Services Director at North Carolina A&T Joyce Edwards said many colleges have online job posting sites like A&T’s “Aggie link” where local and national companies seek out Greensboro college students.

Upon graduation in 2012, 69% of A&T students either had a job, we’re accepted to grad school or going to the military.

Both NC A&T and UNCG send surveys to students for this information many of the time six months after graduation to get a complete job outlook survey.

The National Association of Colleges and Employers says the hiring rate for the class of 2013 is 2.1 % more than last year. Reports also said Students who had more than one internship are more likely to be hired than their peers.

1,300 seniors will graduate from NC A&T Saturday.
