We appreciate your interest in knowing more about the UT Arlington Career Center and in referring students and employers to us. We believe that faculty & staff are an important component to the effective delivery of our services. As a UT Arlington 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 & 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.
The Career Center works with students from freshman to graduate students. Our services are also available to all alumni throughout their careers. It is important for students to connect with our office early on in their UT Arlington experience to establish a relationship with a consultant, learn about our resources and develop a career action plan.
Please take a look at the information and valuable links on this page.
We look forward to working with you!
HOW WE HELP YOUR STUDENTS
Faculty members are the best referral source for our students to use The Career Center. There are several ways you could assist our students:
SERVING AS A REFERENCE
Faculty members play a direct role in the employment process of new graduates. Evaluations of an individual's performance, whether at work or in the classroom, are an integral part of the worlds of work and education. Communication of this information is necessary and appropriate.
We have included several great links to assist you in this process.
Tips for Writing Reference Letters
The Career Center hosts a variety of events on campus designed to connect students with the next steps in their career after graduation. Job Fairs and information sessions, workshops, networking events and graduate student education events are available throughout the fall and spring semesters. To find out what events are scheduled the coming months, see our Events Calendar or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We know employers who want to know you – At The Career Center, we work directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to target students in a particular major or discipline. Employers want to develop mutually beneficial relationships with faculty, and can provide many forms of support. We can facilitate that connection. We also have resources to help faculty understand their ethical responsibilities toward students. (See the NACEweb Faculty Guide for further information.)
