Finding a Job or Internship - The University of Tulsa

Finding a Job or Internship

One of our main functions here at the Center for Career Development and Professional Engagement is to help our students and alumni find jobs and internships within their specific major or field.



“As a TU Student, I was given opportunities to gain skills for success in my future job and put them into practice with summer internships at incredible companies. I am grateful to my professors, career services, and employers that helped me reach my goal of full-time employment before graduation.”

 

– Peyton Manning, IT Analyst, Phillips 66, B.S.B.A CIS and Management


Resume and Cover Letter Assistance

A well-rounded resume or cover letter that is tailored to a specific job posting is much more likely to receive feedback from potential employers than a general resume or cover letter that is sent out to 100 different businesses. Because of this philosophy, we work with both students and alumni to develop a resume and cover letter that boasts major accomplishments from their educational and professional experiences.

Jobs and Internships within Handshake

When logged into the Handshake student portal, there is a tab entitled “Jobs and Internships” on the top left side of the homepage. Under this tab, students and alumni may filter from a full list of available jobs and internships that have been submitted to TU by both local and national businesses to TU. There are multiple filtering options available that students may use to find jobs tailored to their specific needs.

If you or someone else you know is hiring, please encourage them to contact Employer Relations at 918-631-2552 or canecareers@utulsa.edu.

Networking

We encourage students to develop and maintain a professional network online, whether that be through LinkedIn or utulsa connect. Studies have shown that students are 16 times more likely to get hired through networking than through online applications alone.
