We’re Here to Help You Blaze Trails
The BBA Career Management team is a key resource if you're beginning to explore careers, search for an internship or prepare for interviews. Whatever your future holds, our team can help you get there.
Our ServicesOur career coaches and peer coaches can help you discover and evaluate potential career paths and industries, develop your résumé and cover letter, provide strategies and resources for job searches, navigate UT and McCombs job boards, prepare for interviews that include mock interviews, connect with employers, communicate with recruiters and employers, and evaluate and negotiate job offers.
Explore Your Career Paths
McCombs focuses on helping you achieve your career goals right from the start. While many institutions wait to put you in contact with their career management departments, one of your first McCombs classes will be taught by a career coaching professional.
During this course, you’ll learn employer trends, examine what skills are in demand, and become familiar with each of our majors. You’ll also develop your résumé, learn to write a cover letter, and—best of all—receive a mock interview in preparation for recruiting.
All BBA students complete an internship before they graduate. Not only are internships a great way to gain valuable work experience and test the waters in an industry of your choosing, they can be an excellent opportunity to meet new people and expand your network.
Major-Specific Career Coaching
Our major-specific career coaches meet one-on-one with students to discuss options and polish job search and interview strategies. Career coaches specific to your major are a key factor in helping McCombs students successfully land internships and full-time jobs.
As a McCombs undergrad, you can also take advantage of our Peer Coaching program, where you can talk about internships, career paths, and recruiting with a student who’s already been through the process.
