Students with an interest in scheduling an advising session to discuss career exploration, application materials, the job/internship search, networking, negotiation, and other career development topics should connect with their college’s career services office. To prepare for their meetings, students can view the Online Career Resources page on RecruitUT for a compilation of online resources maintained by the individual career services offices. Most offices also maintain job boards with opportunities specific to the fields connected to the departments within their school.
Employers posting jobs to UT recruiting platforms; holding on-campus information sessions and interviews; and participating in on-campus career fairs, programming, and other events must adhere to University nondiscrimination and equal opportunity policies in order to participate in on-campus recruiting programming. We encourage students, employers, and staff alike to familiarize themselves with these policies to ensure the recruiting process protects the rights and security of all UT candidates.
- Nondiscrimination Policy
- Prohibition of Sexual Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking
- Hate and Bias Incidents
If an employer participating in on-campus recruiting is believed to have acted in violation of University nondiscrimination policies, we encourage reporting to the affiliated college’s career services office. Current UT affiliates who have experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct or a hate or bias incident during the application process for an opportunity marketed through on-campus recruiting or during a job or internship experience secured through on-campus recruiting (or are unsure whether an incident qualifies as a hate or bias incident) can also make use of the following informational, reporting, and support resources at UT:
- Campus Climate Response Team
- Office of the Dean of Students
- Campus Climate Incident Online Report Form (for hate and bias incidents)
- Title IX Reporting Form (for incidents of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct)
- Counseling and Mental Health Center
TRIS has built an extensive database of more than 500 online career resources for underrepresented students and alumni at UT. These include specialized internship programs, networking and professional development events, professional associations, and career development resources to support connection to targeted opportunities and career education.
