Job & Internship Posting Standards

Organizations wishing to recruit students and alumni of The University of Texas Austin using BTT Gateway or AccessUT can do so free of charge. All job/internship submissions are reviewed and approved/rejected based upon the information contained in the postings.

Postings must adhere to the following criteria:

  • All jobs and internships posted must be career-related/professionally-oriented and require candidates pursuing or already possessing a university degree.
  • Third-party recruiters (e.g., employment agencies) may post specific positions as long as the hiring client's info is fully disclosed; third-party recruiters may not post general advertisement(s) to solicit candidates for their services.
  • Internship postings must meet the definition and criteria established for internships by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). For more information, please see the internship guidelines.
  • In accordance with UT System Regent’s Rules & Regulations, job and internship postings with the following requirements are ineligible (see campus policies for details):
    • Positions requiring or asking employees to market products/services on the UT Austin campus. Examples include campus brand ambassador and similar positions.
    • Fee-based programs. Examples include fee-based training programs, fee-based placements or positions requiring the purchase of supplies or a training kit.
    • Postings advertising events, services or programs (e.g., career fairs, test prep, etc.).

Job & Internship Postings

BTT Gateway is the College of Liberal Arts recruiting system used for job and internship postings, resume collections and on-campus interview schedules. BTT Gateway (formerly called LiberalArts@Work) is your primary source for jobs postings for Liberal Arts students at UT Austin
is the campus-wide database where you can post job and internship opportunities in order to attract UT student and alumni candidates.
is a collaborative effort of the 15 career services offices on the UT Austin campus to provide employers seeking to hire UT students a single, first point-of-contact interface with the variety of recruiting services available, including on-campus interviewing, career fairs, university-wide and college-specific job and internship posting services and resume referrals.
can be used if you have non-professional, seasonal or part-time hiring needs. Hire-A-Longhorn is an online database available to all students of The University who are seeking employment to earn extra money while they attend school.

On-Campus Interviews

We invite you to take advantage of the convenience of interviewing several student candidates in our offices during an on-campus interview day. Our recruiting system, BTT Gateway, allows you to post your position(s) on-line, screen applicants, and make interview selections so you interview only the applicants you have selected.

Our modern facilities are in the hub of campus and offer private, updated interview suites in the center of campus (FAC).

To inquire about a campus interview day or to reserve interview rooms, please contact Monica Chartier, Program Coordinator, at 512-471-7900 or

Events & Career Events

We have multiple recruiting events each semester including two large career fairs, a nonprofit/public service career fair and several smaller events. For more information, please visit our events page.

Information Sessions

We are able to arrange a room reservation for you to conduct an information session/presentation about your organization. These sessions are generally in the early evening and all students are invited. We add these events to our recruiting calendar and market them to all Liberal Arts students. These sessions can also be a great way to provide preliminary information to students before an on-campus interview day. To arrange an Information Session, please contact our recruiting team, at 512-471-7900 or
