Career and employer services at The University of Texas at Austin are decentralized. There are 15 school-based career services offices, which manage employer relations and student advising for their schools, as as the Vick Center for Strategic Advising, which provides career counseling for all students. Additionally, Texas Recruitment + Interview Services (TRIS) provides university-wide interview services, recruiting consultations, and HireUTexas powered by Handshake job board administration.
To begin developing an effective campus recruiting strategy, we encourage you to reach out to TRIS at firstname.lastname@example.org or (512) 471-2425 for a recruiting consultation. If you are ready to partner with a specific college’s career services offices, we recommend you contact that office directly.

While UT Austin maintains a set of campus-wide recruiting policies, employers engaging targeted populations on campus should also be aware that many of the individual schools at UT Austin have school-specific recruiting policies that apply to on-campus activities including job postings, on-campus interviews, offer extensions, and student engagement. Many career centers adhere to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles of Professional Practice in guiding the relationships between students, career services offices, and employers.

- College of Liberal Arts
- College of Natural Sciences
- McCombs School of Business

Employers have multiple options to promote visibility for specific job and internship opportunities at UT Austin. Visit the RecruitUT Career Center Directory for links to school-specific boards. These job boards are accessible only to students from within each school and are often the most effective route when seeking specific majors or skill sets. In addition, HireUTexas powered by Handshake is the university-wide professional job board for all current students and alumni. HireUTexas is also a good fit for employers seeking experienced-hires as it is accessible to all UT Austin alumni, whereas only some of the school-specific job boards grant access to their school’s alumni.
UT Austin hosts nearly two dozen school-specific career fairs throughout the academic year. Visit the RecruitUT Campus Fairs page for an overview of dates, contact information, and other important details about on-campus fairs.
If you wish to conduct on-campus interviews at UT Austin, your recruiting needs will determine where on campus you should conduct those interviews.
If you are planning on primarily recruiting out of one school, you should connect with the career services office of the school you are targeting. Note that many schools maintain a 75/25 quota system for interviews within their spaces (i.e. no fewer than 75% of students on an interview schedule should be from the school where interviews are being conducted, and no more than 25% of students on schedule from outside of that school).
If you are looking to recruit from multiple schools (or are unable to secure your preferred date at your school of choice) you can reserve space with Texas Recruitment + Interview Services (TRIS). If you plan to have a schedule with a more distributed representation of students, TRIS can support your needs.
While UT Austin’s campus-wide recruiting policies prohibit direct marketing to student clubs and organizations on campus, developing strong relationships with student groups for educational and networking purposes can be an excellent way to develop the long-term connections that drive successful on-campus recruiting pipelines. Student group leaders often seek out employer representatives for their programming, including panels, workshops, and networking events. Please work with a career service office to connect with the student organization that best fits your needs.
Please note that UT’s campus-wide recruiting policies prohibit placing or distributing flyers around campus. Similarly, employers are not allowed to come on campus to set up tables to market job or internship opportunities outside of career fairs.
Please contact the career services teams at UT Austin to discuss additional marketing opportunities.
