Career Center

Students are encouraged to contact the Career Center while they are in school to utilize the provided services in the development of their long‑range planning.  The staff assists students with career counseling through evaluation and testing in the areas of skills analysis, interest identification, and values clarification.  A Career Resource Library that contains occupational and employer information is also available.

The Career Center provides pre‑employment preparation assistance through mock interviews and a variety of workshops on such topics as résumé writing, business letter writing, identifying marketable skills, interviewing skills, and conducting an effective job search. A resume editor is available to critique student resumes and professional documents.  Representatives of business, government, industry, education, and social agencies recruit UTD students at Career Expos and on‑campus interviews. Part-time jobs, both on-campus and off-campus, full-time jobs, and on-campus interview schedules are posted through an online database called UTD CareerWorks.  The Career Center also manages the Internship/Cooperative Education program for all majors, except EE/CS majors.

All students register for UTD CareerWorks by accessing the Career Center website.  Students upload a résumé into the system in order to apply for qualified positions or to make it available for employer referrals. Employers may have access to candidate résumés via various web résumé books set up in the UTD CareerWorks system.
