Check out the video below titled Employers: Meet the UNT Career Center.
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. You can access our calendar of upcoming Career Fairs and Networking Events to see what we have scheduled and begin planning your next recruiting event.
Payments for career fairs and events are made through Handshake. In case you need it, we’ve given you access to the UNT W-9.
Recruiting on-campus in one of the Career Center’s 23 interview suites is an effective way to gain visibility and recruit superior talent for your organization. Learn more about On-Campus Interviews at UNT.
With a referral from the Career Center, employers have the option to staff a table outside of the UNT Library Mall in the center of campus free of charge for up to three times each semester. Additionally, you are welcome to staff a table inside the UNT Union for a fee paid to UNT Union Scheduling. Both tabling options give employers access to a large number of students across all majors for maximum exposure to our talented student population.
Connect and get involved with one or more of the approximately 450 academic and social student organizations at UNT. We can connect you with specific club officers and/or the student organization’s full time staff advisor. Many organizations offer employers the opportunity to speak at general meetings and/or with club officers throughout the academic year. This is a list of all Student Organizations at UNT in case you’d like to see the available organizations. If you need assistance connecting with a student organization, contact the Career Center.
Our Career Center has relationships with faculty across campus that often welcome employer speakers to their classes to speak on particular industry topics.
In a partnership with Parker Dewey, UNT helps employers build a virtual presence and connect with students in a mutually beneficial and meaningful way. The program provides students and recent graduates the opportunity to complete short-term, paid, professional assignments in a completely virtual setting. Micro-internships provide employers with the same benefits as traditional internships, but the projects are much shorter (typically 5 to 40 hours). Learn more About Micro-Internships.
