UT Austin provides a range of career development services, from early career exploration to internship and experiential learning, and from resume and career preparedness to the first step beyond UT.

Undergraduate Students

Career Counseling for All Majors

Students who are unsure of their next move, either with their major or career, may find career counseling helpful. Career counseling is more than figuring out what job you may want. It gets at bigger questions like, who am I, what do I want, and what is fulfilling to me?

Career counseling is available to all majors through Texas Career Engagement.
