JOB BOARD

Interested in posting a full-time, part-time, or internship position? Register for the School of Architecture's internal job board or send the job description to Career Services

POLICY: The School of Architecture is unable to post positions for individuals who are not part of, and hiring for, an established business or organization. We are also unable to advertise jobs where the student would be working out of a home office. Please consider posting these positions to UT's student newspaper, The Daily Texan.

All negotiations are handled directly between the student and employer. Employers and students are urged to perform due diligence when offering, applying for, or accepting private off-campus employment. Additionally, while the Career Services office typically only posts paid opportunities, exceptions can be made if the internship meets the U.S. Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act guidelines for unpaid internships.
