Texas Career Engagement (formerly TRIS) maintains an evolving database of more than 500 career and recruiting resources for students from backgrounds historically underrepresented and/or disadvantaged across high-skill industries. Adding these resources to your toolkit can help you connect with employers actively seeking to diversify their talent pool and gain targeted education through professional networks and advocacy groups.

University Policies & Support

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.

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:

Community-specific Resources

To support employers seeking to diversify their cross-campus candidates and supplement the school-specific career resources maintained by UT’s career services offices, Texas Career Engagement 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.

Career Advising & Programming

UT’s 16 career centers are your first stop for a range of career advising services, programming, and tools to support your career development. If you are a current student, connect with your college’s career services office for career education and on-campus recruiting activities.

Campus Offices & Resources

UT has a number of campus offices, programs, and online resources supporting diversity efforts at both the university and college level. For community-specific resources, visit the targeted resources pages.

HireUTexas Postings

HireUTexas, 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. Texas Career Engagement 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. You can search for these postings in HireUTexas using the job ID numbers listed.

Affirmative Action Postings

The postings below are from employers with 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.
