Corporate Colleagues Program

Recruiting for the best and brightest candidates across college campuses has evolved. All indicators point to a faster pace of change given increased employer demands, access to new databases, and new technologies and techniques. The process of sourcing student talent remains challenging and will be so for the foreseeable future. Let us help you increase our UT students’ perception of your firm, culture, value proposition, and brand to remain a critical component of your recruitment process.

What is Handshake?

Handshake is the number one site for potential employers to reach Moody students for jobs and internships. Employers can do the following through Handshake:

  • Post job or internship positions
  • Search for students to hire
  • Message students

Our new Corporate Colleagues Program provides your organization with the best, forward-thinking career service options to help you meet your campus recruitment goals. The program empowers our recruiters by providing multiple opportunities for engagement in tiered membership support levels. As a year-long corporate member, your recruiters receive Career Center guidance to increase strategic focus, branding, and student engagement to meet recruiting goals at Moody College.

Company recruiters and career center staff need enhanced collaboration during times of rapid change. We work with your company to support swift entry into the College so you can engage our students in multiple ways throughout their four-year journey. 

Posting internship and job opportunities to Moody College students, recent graduates, and alumni will always be a free service through Handshake. Students are alerted of your posted opportunities in weekly student newsletter alerts.
