The Career Services Center provides recruiting opportunities, career development resources, information, and advising to students, graduates, and alumni. More than just connecting students and alumni with job/internship openings, the aim of the Career Center is to teach and strengthen professional development skills that will serve throughout one’s career.
A wide array of career services is available to students and alumni including postings of current job openings, annual career fairs, and workshops on résumé preparation, portfolio development, and job search strategies. Through the Career Services Center, students and alumni can tap into an important and constantly expanding nationwide network of professionals and employers.

Trying to find a classmate or long-lost friend?
As a state institution, we are bound by privacy laws that prevent the distribution of any alumni contact information. No personnel, staff or faculty in the School of Architecture is authorized to release any alumni addresses, e-mails, phone numbers or even cities of residence.
BUT — as a UT graduate, you have access to The Texas Exes on-line directory. You do NOT need to join Texas Exes to access this directory, but you DO need to register your own contact information and create a log-in ID to search for classmates. (Please contact email@example.com if you encounter any problems logging in.)
Since their directory is an opt-in program, it is limited by whether the person you are attempting to find has gone to the Texas Exes web site and released specific information to be available in the directory.
The Benefits of Texas Exes Membership
If you do decide to join Texas Exes, one of the member benefits is helping members locate former classmates or friends who attended UT. Due to privacy and security restraints, they cannot give out addresses or phone numbers, but (as a benefit of membership) they are able to forward your contact information and note to the alumnus – either by email or snail mail. They do this on a limited/as time allows basis, and it is dependent on address information being current in their database. If you are (or will become) a member of Texas Exes and are unable to find your classmates on the online directory, you may contact a Texas Exes representative at 512.471.8839 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
