Lifetime Career Services

Background

NC State’s Wilson College of Textiles is a specialized educational institution that continues to serve a technologically advanced textile industry.  To continue to meet the need of the textile industry, the Office of Academic, Career and Student Services (ACSS) created the Lifetime Career Service (LCS).  The LCS works to help match qualified alumni with positions that require experience.

Wilson College has always been known for high placement rates at graduation. These results are due, in part, from industry’s demand for qualified entry-level graduates and, in part, from ACSS. For many years, textile companies and executive search firms have been approaching Student and Career Services in search of experienced Textile graduates. And for many years, alumni have been contacting the College for continuing career assistance long after graduation. However, until the creation of the LCS, matches were made only when time permitted.

Eligibility

Until a Textiles graduate has accepted his or her first full-time position ACSS serves the alumnus/a through undergraduate career assistance. After the alumnus/a has accepted a full-time position, he or she may use the LCS to explore other opportunities in the textile industry.

If you are a recent graduate and you have not accepted your first full-time position you may continue to use the ACSS in the same manner as a current undergraduate.
