Is struggling. I talked to someone who is very high in the office and she told me that most employers dislike UNCC for few reasons which she won't tell me...

She gave me some numbers tho... BofA came in with the following openings; Middle office 12 positions, FMAP 15 positions, and Corporate Workplace 10 positions. They received 210 resumes but interviewed only 60 people. Out of this 60 people, 0 received 2nd interview for FMAP, 1 received 2nd interview for Middle Office, and 2 received 2nd interview for Corporate Workplace.

BB&T Leadership Development Program (20 jobs) received 140 resumes, 70 people got interviewed. Only 4 passed 1st interview...

Bad time to be struggling...

I'm familiar with that program and it doesn't sound all that out of the ordinary. Folks from numerous and prestigious universities are interviewed from all over the country for those jobs. Considering what I'm sure is a relatively smaller than normal job pool for this program than in years past, its not all that suprising that they are being extremely selective. That pool of jobs you listed is not looking to just be filled by people in this area, they take kids from all over the country.

Trust me, I know. It never being so low tho... I know few people with 4.0 GPA who did not got a single job interview. Usually those people would be first to get an interview but it looks like GPA is not a big factor this days. Only about 5% of UNCC seniors got a 2nd interview other 95% have to look for a job else where. It was near 30% to 40% last year.

The statistics provided about BofA are not accurate, students have been receiving 2nd interviews. I would know.....

Too many people getting degrees nowadays, oversaturation. Combine that with many young people that think once they get the degree they'll have employers throwing 50k/year jobs at them. Your degree just gets you in the door sometimes, it's no guarantee and right now companies ain't making as much money and are hiring less of you.

Yeap, plus what SD said. Too many students plus crappy school will do that.

I mean it IS getting better academically. But it's still largely attended by Duke/UNC/NC State/Wake rejects. If you want proof, all you have to do is stand around the Belk tower when classes are changing and count the number of people wearing shirts supporting those schools compared to those wearing shirts supporting UNCC. 10:1 might be too generous of a ratio.
