Career Services

Liberal Arts Career Services, Flawn Academic Center 20, offers career connections for liberal arts students, recent graduates, and employers. The goal of the office is to assist liberal arts students in their career development and to equip them with the practical skills required to master lifelong career decisions and professional growth.

Liberal Arts Career Services provides counseling, critiques resumes, arranges mock interviews, and conducts workshops on resume writing, interviewing skills, and company research. Liberal Arts Career Services maintains a resource room with books, videotapes, company literature, and job postings, as well as one of the largest on-campus liberal arts recruitment programs in the country. Over three hundred companies are assisted by Liberal Arts Career Services each year through computer searches, information sessions, and on-campus interviewing. An annual resume book is sent each fall to hundreds of employers. The Job Links newsletter, published ten times a year, tells students about local, state, and national internship, part-time, and full-time professional opportunities and provides helpful career search information. Liberal Arts Career Services also sponsors special events like an annual Career Expo, Spend a Day with a Professional (a job-shadowing experience), Better Late than Jobless workshops in the spring, and an annual Law Fair.

Liberal arts students may purchase an "L.A. Works" resume disk for help in writing a resume and cover letter. The disk is especially valuable for students who plan to take part in on-campus recruitment.

As a complement to the assistance available from the college, the University Career Center provides comprehensive career services to all students. The center offers professional assistance to students in choosing or changing their majors or careers, seeking an internship, and planning for the job search or for graduate study.

The Education Placement Service, George I. Sanchez Building 294, helps to place graduates who have completed a program leading to teacher certification at either the elementary or the secondary school level. This office also assists graduates who wish to find teaching jobs at the college level or in private schools, junior colleges, or overseas schools in which certification is not required.

The University makes no promise to secure employment for each graduate.

Admission and Registration

They are also published on the World Wide Web and are accessible through the registrar's Web site, http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/.

Academic Advising

The Undergraduate Dean's Office of the College of Liberal Arts provides administrative support and student services for the college. Student services include maintenance of student academic records, academic counseling on a walk-in basis for students in the college, development of official degree audits for students, and graduation certification.

In addition to the academic counseling available to students in the college, advisers in the Undergraduate Dean's Office are available to assist any student with questions about scholastic progress, degree requirements, rules and regulations, and campus services such as career or personal counseling.

Advisers are available in each department to help students choose appropriate coursework to fulfill their degree requirements and to support their career goals.

Every student in the college receives an advising audit in his or her major department each semester during registration. The advising audit lists posproduced for advising purposes only and are not official degree audits.
