Graduate Students and the Non-Academic Career Search

Liberal Arts Career Services has teamed up with the Graduate School to enhance your career opportunities by providing career-related support to graduate students seeking careers outside of academia.

Schedule an alt-ac career coaching session:

We encourage you to begin using our services and resources as soon as possible, and preferably well before graduation so that we can help you design a plan for acquiring the necessary experience and connections related to your field of choice. Note that some on-campus recruiting resources listed below are available for Liberal Arts students only. If you are not a Liberal Arts student, please refer to your college's career center for recruiting resources. You can also access internship and job search postings on the University's campus-wide job board, HireUTexas

Career Coaching

Determining your post-graduation plans requires strategic planning and a balance of time and energy, particularly when you’re trying to complete academic requirements.  Our coaches will help you identify your current situation (including your strengths, skills, and knowledge), where you hope to go (the career field or position you aspire to), and help you design the most strategic and effective path to get there.
