Job Search Websites

ECAC has compiled an extensive list of job search related websites to assist you.

On-Campus Recruiting

Through the ECAC System, you may apply for campus interviews and submit your resume for job postings. Your resume becomes part of a database searchable by employers. In addition, the ECAC System houses a number of tools and resources to help you succeed in your job search.

Work Experience

Work experience enhances engineering education for both undergraduates and graduate students alike. Students who participate in engineering internships and the Co-op Program are able to explore career interests and have a competitive advantage when looking for a full-time position upon graduation. ECAC has several programs to help students find out more about specific engineering fields and majors.

Externships give students the opportunity to spend one day with an engineering organization to find out more about the industry and daily life in the workplace. The Co-op Program allows students to gain full-time work experience and academic credit.

An internship is an opportunity for a student of any classification to gain valuable, paid work experience. Interns work full-time during the summer, and commit to work with an employer for one summer only. Students may attempt to work with a different employer each summer to expand their horizons even more.

Job Postings

Employers post job openings to the ECAC System and HireUTexas (hosted by the University) for full-time, part-time, intern, and co-op positions. Job opportunities are added often. Check the sites regularly.
