On-campus Interviews

ECAC hosts on-campus interviews each fall and spring for employers interested in hiring for full-time, summer internship or co-op positions. Employers have two options for on-campus interviewing: pre-select and room-only schedules.

Pre-select schedules allow you to take advantage of our online recruiting services for posting the job, receiving resumes, selecting candidates, and scheduling interviews. Room-only scheduling allows you to contact the students directly and schedule the interviews yourself.

Scheduling On-campus Interviews

Because interview dates fill up quickly, we suggest reserving your interview dates as early as possible. Reserve interview dates by requesting a schedule through our online recruiting system or by emailing the recruiting team at

There are no room charges or fees to participate in on-campus interviews.

Third-party recruiters cannot participate in career fairs, on-campus interviews, or information sessions. They are welcome to post jobs to our online job boards.

Information Sessions

Employers interested in increasing their visibility on campus and maximizing recruiting efforts are welcome to host an information session.

Information sessions are on-campus presentations that employers give students the evening before interview dates. These events provide an opportunity for students to learn more about your organization and for you to increase your visibility on campus and gain name recognition among the students.

To make a request to host an information session, please log in to our online recruiting system, and complete the Information Session Request form.

There are no room or equipment charges to participate for information sessions arranged by ECAC.

Job Boards

Employers unable to participate in on-campus interviews, or who have positions they need to fill quickly, are welcome to post job descriptions to two user-friendly job boards used by Cockrell School students.

ECAC System Job Board

The ECAC job board is available to registered users of the ECAC online recruiting system. You may post a job exclusively for The University of Texas at Austin engineering students who are registered to use our services.  Posting to the ECAC job board is a free service. 

HireUTexas Job Board 

HireUTexas is a free service that allows employers and third-party recruiters to advertise full-time, part-time, co-op, and intern positions to more than 50,000 students and alumni of The University of Texas at Austin.  

ECAC recommends posting your opportunities to both job boards.


Posting Part-time Jobs

Employers can advertise part-time positions to Cockrell School students via the ECAC System, the HireUTexas job board, and the Hirealonghorn Job Bank.

The Hire A Longhorn Job Bank is sponsored by Student Employment Referral Services in the university's Office of Student Financial Services.

ECAC itself does not advertise temporary positions or special projects.

Career Fairs

Participating in career fairs helps build your presence and name recognition on campus, allows you to advertise future on-campus recruiting dates and events, and offers an opportunity to talk informally with students about the types of positions available within your organization.
