The Career Fair is a closed event, open only to students and alumni of the ENCCA institutions. Those affiliated with the Metrolina Career Consortium and the North Carolina Career Consortium are also invited. Most attendees will be graduating in May, seeking full-time employment and/or graduate school information at the Career Fair. Organizations will also meet students who are attending for general career-related information (such as internships) and alumni who are seeking positions or information.
Tables for Employers and graduate school representatives are not prearranged and are available to representatives on a first-come, first-serve basis; therefore, representatives should plan to arrive between 8:00-8:30 a.m. to select and set up their booth and enjoy a continental breakfast with college representatives. The career fair is from 9:00-2:00; this is a time to talk with students, provide information on your organization, and determine if you would like to talk further with the student/alumni at some other time in the future. On a rotating basis, registered employer representatives are invited to attend a lunch between 11:00am-1:00pm. Wireless access is available.
Take a moment to note the following deadlines for employers and graduate schools:
- January 21, 2019 - Priority Registration Deadline: Registration forms must be submitted by this date in order to guarantee your space at the event. We will continue to accept registrations through February 5, 2019 on a space available basis.
- January 26, 2018 - Any cancellation requests must be received by this date in order to receive a refund.
- February 15, 2019 - All invoices must be paid in full and employer profile information must be entered.
In preparation for the fair, know that students and alumni want to talk with employers about job openings, career opportunities, and hiring processes and with graduate schools about program information and application procedures. Be prepared to share this information as well as organizational literature with attendees.

Inclement Weather and Cancellation Procedures
- ENCCA consortium members will monitor weather conditions and consult with onsite officials at the fair site.
- Should a weather emergency be occurring or imminent, ENCCA may come to a decision to cancel the fair on the scheduled day.
- Good faith efforts will be made to communicate cancellation of the fair to all registered employers and organizations via email messages and phone calls.
- All attempts will be made to reschedule the career fair at a later date. A new date will be communicated through email messages to registered employers and organizations. If the fair is rescheduled but an organization is unable to attend on the new date then the organization may apply 100% of their registration fee to the career fair for the following year or request a refund, which will be 50% of the registration fee which will be provided by check to the organization. If the ENCCA fair is canceled for the current academic year employers may request a refund of registration fees minus processing and administrative fees
