Discussion on University of Texas Dallas

Is career center the only way of getting a job? There must be some tough competition I think given the number of students

@avikaaa Campus jobs include everything and anything you can find. You can also work in the library, computer lab, student offices, bookstore, dining service, etc. On-campus jobs can pay you anywhere between 7 to 12 dollars an hour.
The career center is not the only option. You can always ask your seniors for any possible job opening. Since they are around longer, they would know if there is anything available. Another way is to volunteer initially so that you can keep up-to-date with job openings. It will also help with your CV and networking. Being proactive will also help. Just ask around. Take the initiative to get the job.

And what about OPT? is there any limit to the kind of job we can do?

can we work on-campus during our OPT?

what are the admission requirements to get into UTD?

@avikaaa,
It depends on whether you have graduated from the university or not. If you have graduated, you won’t be able to volunteer at the university and claim it as employment. The university does not allow it.

There is no limit to the kind of jobs you can do. You can get employed with single employers or multiple, get contract employment, or even volunteer. However, the job should be related to your major.
