Alumni: Seeking Employment

Partnership with UT Alumni Association

A new partnership has been created with the UT Alumni Association to provide a better range of services for alumni. As an alumnus, you can request appointments, participate in on-campus recruiting, attend job fairs, and utilize our physical as well as online resources. UT alums that are less than one year removed from their graduation date will continue to use the Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration. UT alums that are greater than one year from their graduation date can schedule an appointment with the alumni career consultant with the UT Alumni Association.

How You Can Hire UT Students

Many alumni are interested in how they can hire current UT students for their companies. Please return to our main career page and select Employers for more information.

Options for Alumni

There are two options for Alumni to search for jobs.

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.
