The UT Arlington Career Development Center organizes two (2) all-majors job fairs on campus every year (one in the Spring semester and one in the Fall semester). We typically have over 150 employers across multiple industries in attendance. NO RSVP is required to attend the job fairs; however, they are only open to currently enrolled UT Arlington students and alumni (graduates of the University).
