Job & Internship Postings
Post in HireUTexas powered by Handshake to connect with ALL UT Austin students and alumni for internship and full-time, part-time, seasonal, experiential learning, on-campus employment, event listings, and on-campus interviews. Employer account and job posting approvals are based on our campus-wide Employer Recruiting Guidelines and Procedures.
In addition to HireUTexas, many of our colleges and schools manage job posting platforms specifically for their students that offer employers an effective option for targeting specific majors or skill sets.
Advanced Degree On-Campus Employment
Are you a UT Austin faculty or staff member who is looking to hire a graduate student for an on-campus position? Have your position promoted in our Graduate Student Campus Jobs Listserv.
If you are planning to recruit from multiple schools/colleges, we recommend utilizing the campus-wide online recruiting system, HireUTexas powered by Handshake, and Texas Career Engagement Interview Suites.
If you are planning to recruit from just one school/colleges or focus on one major, please connect with the career center of the school you are targeting. We can provide guidance on how to manage this effort and will help make connections and introductions. Note, some career centers maintain a 75/25 quota system for interviews within their spaces (i.e. no fewer than 75% of the students scheduled should be from the school where interviews are being conducted, and no more than 25% of students scheduled from outside of that school).
Work-Study & Student Employment
HireUTexas provides on-campus and off-campus employers access to students seeking part-time employment, including work-study employment. Employer account and job posting approvals are based on our campus recruiting guidelines and procedures.
For new on-campus employers, get started by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org to verify that your department or office has an existing HireUTexas employer account. If your office has an established account, we will forward you the details needed to access your employer account. If your office does not have an established account, we will send instructions on how to successfully create your account.
Off-Campus Work-Study Employers
Nonprofit employers in the Austin area may be eligible to hire work-study students for part-time opportunities. In addition to the great talent inherent in UT Austin students, nonprofit organizations benefit from the federally-funded partial subsidy of the student-employee’s wages. Contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid to learn more about the Work-Study Program and the criteria for off-campus employers.
Requests to host, post, and promote campus-wide events can be made by contacting Texas Career Engagement. We will coordinate with career centers per your talent needs to promote and maximize attendance by advising event timing, content, etc.
Requests to host, post and promote college-specific events can be made by contacting target UT Career Centers. UT Career Centers provide a number of “Single Employer” and “Multi-Employer” event opportunities for employers to connect with students throughout the year.
