The Undergraduate Energy Management Program provides a unique opportunity for students to receive specific training to prepare them for careers in energy. Throughout the demanding 18 credit hour program, including a nine week intensive summer schedule where all of the foundational courses of the program are taught, students gain practical knowledge that allows them to be assets to industry firms.
The EMP Career Services office is dedicated to working with employers through the recruiting process. Please contact Tanya Andrien via email at Tanya.Andrien@mccombs.utexas.edu to start developing a recruiting plan that works for you.

Build Your Presence
There are several ways for employers to get involved with the students and increase their reach to qualified candidates. Participating in career-related events puts employers and recruiters in a more intimate setting with students and increases company visibility. Events that the EMP Career Services office has held in the past include mock interviews, site visits to companies, visits to campus by various companies, and etiquette lunches. We are always open to new ideas and excited to work with companies to find the best plan for recruiting. For more details on upcoming events or If you are interested in participating in any events, please contact Tanya Andrien.
Interested in increasing your visibility amongst EMP students? Consider sponsoring a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) or career-services event during the 9-week summer session held early June to early August or in the regular fall/spring sessions. Employers will gain exclusive contact with students and be able to speak to the student population about their companies and potential career opportunities. For more details or to propose ideas for an event, please contact Tanya Andrien.
Find Your Dream Job!
Research the industry
Your first step in finding your dream job in the energy industry is to research! Use online resources like O Net and the Occupational Outlook Handbook, to get an overview of what types of careers are available in the industry. Visit the Vick Center for Strategic Advising & Career Counseling and the UT Libraries Career Resources page for more helpful links to research careers. You can use the Company Research guide found on the Career Services page to help guide your research of careers in the industry.
Other web resources for your career research are:
Through your research, become familiar with industry key terms, jargon, current news and top firms. Your future job search will definitely benefit from a well rounded knowledge of the industry.
Prepare to apply
After researching the industry and getting an idea of the type of job you'd love to land, it is time to prepare your resume and cover letter.
Writing your resume
The resume is an honest and well thought out document that helps to showcase your education, skills and experience. Your resume shows your skills and experiences in a way that convinces the recruiter that you should get an interview. The resume is an important part of your job search and should be tailored to the specific job you are seeking. It should be free of typographical errors. It is best to limit the resume length to one page. The Resume Writing guide found on the Career Services page will help you polish your resume.
Writing a cover letter
Your cover letter introduces you and your resume to a potential employer. It is very important to take the time to customize your cover letter to each specific position you are applying for, rather than having one generic cover letter for all the positions you apply to. The cover letter, like the resume and any other correspondence you send to a potential employer, should be free of typographical errors. The cover letter should hook the interest of the reader and should be professional and conversational in tone, not rigid like a research paper, but not like an email to a friend. You can view the Job Search Correspondence Guide on the Career Services page for more information about writing the cover letter.
