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. Familiarizing yourself with these policies can help you better understand the rights and protections afforded to you as an applicant and University student.
- Nondiscrimination Policy
- Prohibition of Sexual Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking
- Hate and Bias Incidents
If you believe an employer or recruiter participating in on-campus recruiting has acted in violation of University nondiscrimination policies, please reach out to your college’s career services office. If you are a current student and you or someone you know has experienced 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), please also consider making 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
To support employers seeking to diversify their cross-campus candidates and supplement the school-specific career resources maintained by UT’s career services offices, TRIS aggregates community-specific career resources relevant to diverse student populations on campus, including job postings of interest, targeted recruitment programs, professional associations, and online resources. Connect with these resources by exploring pages relevant to your search.

HireUTexas powered by Handshake, the campus-wide job board, is a resource for employers looking to connect with students and alumni recruit across schools at UT. In addition, the platform serves as the primary system through which employers recruit alumni for experienced-hire opportunities. TRIS reports out on employers who have indicated an interest in affirmative or strategic outreach to populations underrepresented within their organizations and/or their industries more broadly.
Employers may choose to include explicit affirmative action statements in their postings, indicating proactive recruitment of underrepresented students. Note that an affirmative action statement does not indicate that an employer is certain to hire someone from one or more underrepresented groups; rather, the employer is proactively seeking to increase the diversity of its candidate pool and guaranteeing nondiscrimination protections for all of its applicants.
The following resources from beyond the UT campus support the job and internship search for applicants from generally underrepresented backgrounds, including job boards, advice, research, and other career resources. Community-specific resources can be found in the targeted resources pages.
Need space for an upcoming phone or video/Skype interview? TRIS has a suite of interview rooms available for current UT students to reserve.
