Services & Offerings
Utilize these resources to assist your students in their career and professional development. Remember we’re here to support you in your efforts to engage your students in growing their workforce skills and competencies.
The Career Development Center staff facilitates presentations for classrooms, organizations and other workshops. Presentations must be requested at least 2 weeks in advance.
Faculty and staff are important partners in the effective delivery of our services. As a UTA faculty or staff member, you play an integral role in influencing students’ decisions and experiences. Students may come to you first with questions about career choices, jobs and internships related to their major and how to locate resources on campus to help them. Our goal is to partner with you to assist our students (and alumni) in making informed career choices and finding success. If you’re interested in building a partnership with us to provide career engagement and professional development to your students, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
