Recruiting On Campus/Building a Presence
“University of North Texas graduates are prepared to engage, work and grow their careers straight out of school more so than any other university in my professional experience. They are unique in that that they have a strong work ethic, are great collaborators, keep a positive attitude and possess a sheer willingness to succeed. The faculty is also clearly teaching real skills that translate to today’s workforce needs so students are learning crucial tools that will allow them to make positive contributions in their careers from day one. These are just a few of the reasons why I seek out UNT grads when I am recruiting.“
Kyle Hogue, Vice President – DynaTen Corporation
For Fall 2020 due to COVID-19, opportunities for employers to connect with UNT students are being offered virtually.
Building a Presence on Campus
Brand awareness is a key recruiting element, and we encourage you to build it early with frequent on-campus visits and engagement with our students.
Career Fairs and Networking Events
Each fall and spring the Career Center offers industry specific networking events and larger major career fairs. Here, companies have the opportunity to make connections with students and alumni in a variety of formats that meet the needs of their organization.

Recruiting on-campus in one of the Career Center’s 18 interview suites is an effective way to gain visibility and recruit superior talent for your organization. For additional information about On-Campus Interviews click here.
With a referral from the Career Center, you have the option to table outside of the UNT Library Mall in the main center of campus for free up to three times a semester. Additionally, you are welcome to table inside the UNT Union for a fee paid to UNT Union Scheduling.
Connect and get involved with one or more of hundreds of academic and social UNT student organizations. We can connect you with specific club officers and/or the student organization’s full time staff advisor. By doing this, you are typically offered the opportunity to present at a general meeting and/or for club officers throughout the academic year.
Our Career Center has relationships with faculty across campus that often welcome employer speakers to their classes to speak on particular industry topics.
