Alumni: Seeking Career Guidance

Partnership with UT Alumni Association

Alumni have access to a range of services including coaching appointments, recruiting events, job fairs, Handshake, and online resources which are found through the Student tabs of this website.

UT alums who are less than one year removed from their graduation date will continue to use the Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration for appointments and events.

UT alums who are greater than one year from their graduation date can schedule appointments with the alumni career services director with the UT Alumni Association.

Job Search Platforms for Alumni

Alumni are encouraged to utilize one or both platforms to find job opportunities.

Option one is Handshake. This is the same system that current students use. If you are within one year of your graduation date, you will login using your UT NetID and password which will remain active for that time period. Alumni who have graduated more than a year ago can sign up for an account using the email address of your choice. Your account will be approved within 1-2 business days after verification of alumni status.

Option two is CareerShift, which is a set of integrated applications designed to help job seekers find opportunities. It is a job aggregator that searches the web for job postings. Users can also find alumni who work at organizations of interest.
