Central to the work of Texas Recruitment + Interview Services (TRIS) are its partnerships with UT’s career services offices to provide on-campus interview space, HireUTexas powered by Handshake administration, employer relations support, online resources, and recruitment data and information services. We have broken down our support services for easy reference and are available to discuss ways we can support your work on campus.

TRIS oversees a suite of 12 interview rooms available for booking by employers, career services offices, and other UT affiliates. The suite is particularly useful for employers recruiting from multiple colleges on campus but also serves as overflow space for career services offices when employers look to reserve booked up dates. Rooms can be reserved on behalf of employers via the TRIS Reservation Request Form.
TRIS administers the HireUTexas powered by Handshake campus-wide job board, including activating administrative privileges and coordinating posting moderation. To have an admin account created please contact TRIS and to access the admin site please use this link. For staff responsible for moderating postings targeting a given college, the HireUTexas powered by Handshake Moderation Guide and Recruiting Policies pages can serve as useful tools, particularly for new staff. We set the expectation with employers that postings will be moderated within five business days of submitting a posting, after which TRIS will moderate them if they remain in the unmoderated queue.
More than 10,000 job and internship opportunities are posted to HireUTexas powered by Handshake each year, positioning it as an excellent resource for campus offices and programs seeking connections to opportunities across all of UT Austin’s schools. TRIS is able to create targeted job reports to deliver opportunities curated for your needs, including but not limited to any combination of:
- School (e.g. Business, Natural Sciences, Pharmacy)
- Job type (e.g. full-time, internship, part-time, contract/temporary)
- Location (e.g. Texas, New York, international)
- Company (e.g. active postings from Google)
- Degree (e.g. Bachelor’s, Masters, Doctorate)
