Welcome back! If you are an alumni of the College of Natural Sciences, we welcome you to review our Alumni Policy below to see what your options are in utilizing Career Services.

Alumni Policy

Career Services is available to all students and alumni of the UT Austin College of Natural Sciences.  However, as Natural Sciences Career Coaching is funded through student fees, current students and recent graduates are our primary clients. Services include career fairs, access to our online job board, on-campus interviews, workshops, resources libraries, and limited individual appointments.

Recent Graduates

Recent College of Natural Sciences graduates have full access to all services, including scheduling appointments with career coaches and resume reviews, for a full calendar year after their date of graduation. These graduates will receive the same services as current students. For example, if you graduated in May 2020, then you will have access to coaching services through May 2021.
