Due to booth capacity of the UT Dallas Activity Center, there are a limited number of organizations able to register for the Career Expo Days each semester. Registration for all Career Expos are on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, there are inevitably a number of spots that open up in late August or early September and we will invite employers from the waiting list to fill these spaces at that time. If your organization is on the waiting list, please be patient and wait to be contacted by us about any available spaces. If you do not hear from us, a spot is not available. If contacted, please be prepared to act quickly and accept your registration or your space may be given to the next organization in line.

Your registration must be approved by the office:
To ensure a variety of opportunities for students from all majors, employer space is limited based on industry

We look forward to your participation in the UT Dallas Career Expo. This event is sponsored by the Career Center at The University of Texas at Dallas.
