As the largest undergraduate business program in the University of Texas System, the UTSA College of Business trains the workforce of the future. Working closely with University Career Services, the Center for Student Professional Development (CSPD) reaches out to companies who wish to recruit business students. The CSPD helps place students in internships and full-time postgraduate positions. Companies may introduce their opportunities to our students in a number of ways:
Volunteering for a Career Action Plan (CAP) event: Through our signature professional development program, company representatives can “speed network” with our students or facilitate mock interviews with a group of 5-7 students whose major is of interest to your company. We provide the teaching materials for these sessions, while company representatives share their business experience and introduce their company to a large number of business students.
Table Recruit on “Main Street” of the Business Building: Companies can meet our students in the Business Building “Main Street”, where several hundred students pass every hour. Table recruiting is a great way to interact with business students and generate interest in immediate internship and employment opportunities.
Information Sessions and Receptions: Companies may arrange to speak to business students who are interested in opportunities in their industry and company. A typical session or reception will be held in the University Room or CSPD Annex.
On-campus interviews in the EY Leadership Suites: The CSPD provides the EY Leadership Suites conference facility for recruiters interested in conducting on-campus interviews with business students. This exclusive area provides the perfect environment for interacting with students in a professional setting. Contact the CSPD at (210) 458-4039 for more information about this opportunity.
Recruiting Interns and Employees: When companies approach the college with internship and employment opportunities, the CSPD provides a host of services to communicate the opportunity to business students. After the position is posted on Handshake (UTSA job board), the CSPD distributes the position by:
- Creating an email announcement to be sent out to business students, student organizations, faculty and other COB administrators
- Customizing announcements and posting on digital and print signage throughout the college
- Seeking in-class opportunities to announce the position to a captive audience
