The UT system has implemented an applicant tracking system that gives applicants the ability to search for open positions by location and entity, apply online and upload attachments. Applicants can check their application status electronically. 

How do I search for open positions?

  • External applicants, UTC student assistants, and graduate assistants should view the External Career Site.
  • Regular and temporary staff should search job openings through the Internal Career Site.

How do I apply for a job? 

 The first step in the process is to choose from one of the two applicant gateways.

  • External applicants, UTC student assistants, and graduates assistants should apply through the External Career Site. If you are an external candidate, you will create a new account to submit your application.
  • Regular and temporary staff are considered internal applicants for recruiting purposes and should apply through the Internal Career Site. Enter your Net ID and password to apply.

All applications should be submitted online and an email address is required. You will receive an email message to confirm you have applied for a specific position and again when your application is forwarded to a hiring department for consideration. Additional notifications will be sent as appropriate via email throughout the recruitment process.
