We offer workshops, including résumé writing and interviewing skills, to get you ready for that part-time job, internship, or full-time job. We bring hiring representatives from various fields: business, government, education, and social agencies to recruit at career fairs and on-campus interviews.
We also post student employment jobs in Job Mine. Working on campus is a great way to enhance your résumé and gain meaningful work experience. Job Mine lists hundreds of jobs on and off campus, part-time, full-time, and professional. Activate your profile or login now.
Work Study is another type of student employment at UTEP. Work-study is a need-based employment program, but you must have received this type of aid via your financial aid award. Review all work-study positions in Job Mine.
Having your résumé ready for a class assignment or an actual job application does not have to be stressful, simply visit the Career Center to have your résumé reviewed by one of our staff members. You can walk-in with your document in-hand, use one of our computers to begin crafting your document, or you can email your completed document to email@example.com and someone will review it within 24 HRS.
You can also have a one-on-one mock interview coaching session simply call our office for an appointment at 915-747-5640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
