Resources for Longhorn Women

Numerous resources exist to support the career development and job search of Longhorn women during your time both on campus and off. This collection of resources can serve as a starting point for your conversation with a career coach in your college’s career services office about career research and job and internship search strategies. Check back periodically as new resources are added regularly!

Beyond the Forty Acres are a number of resources to assist you as you explore careers, develop your professional network, and seek out job and internship opportunities. These resources should be considered a starting point for your research rather than programmatic endorsement. Please vet opportunities and associations carefully before affiliating or applying.
