The UT Dallas Career Center is proud to assist so many great students with their internship experiences. Check out some spotlighted interns here.
Would you like to learn more about our Internship Program? All students (except ECS majors: you will visit the IPP Office for your information) should read about the process for getting started. Students who intern are much more likely to land that full-time job right after graduation!
Graduation is here – are you ready to enter the workforce? The Career Center can help with resume and cover letter critiques as well as mock interview training to help you be successful in the job search! Don’t wait until after you graduate to begin this process – finding a job could take months!
There are four ways to get your documents critiqued:
- By stopping by the Career Center during a drop-in time for a 15 minute, face-to-face chat– the best option!
- Dropping off your resume and picking it up 48 hours later.
- Emailing your resume to email@example.com.
- Scheduling an appointment with one of our resume editors.
Don’t forget to check out our website for other services we offer!
A portfolio is a job search tool that students can use to digitally compile information about themselves in one location. Portfolios document skills, achievements, and academic learning. Portfolios can include artifacts, work, and experiences in a variety of media (Word documents, photos or other graphics, links to web pages, etc.) to demonstrate competencies that you have learned through classes, work experiences, or other areas.
Students are able to set up an online portfolio through UTD CareerWorks (our online job/internship posting database – you should already have an account!). The portfolio product used in conjunction with UTD CareerWorks is called Folio21.

Did you know that the Career Center can help you with your grad school application? We have editors who will critique your personal statement, resume, cover letter, or any other application-related document! If the document is long, be sure to make an appointment so the editors can be thorough with your work. Remember, our editing services are free even for alumni, but don’t wait until you graduate to get started!
