First, please consult our guide and this step-by-step video to posting a ULN position on HireUTexas powered by Handshake. Because of the high volume of positions on the website, please use the following naming convention to ensure that your position is approved in a timely fashion. All ULN positions must be titled “ULN EL: Your Job Title.” If positions are not labeled, we cannot guarantee the positions will be approved and posted in a timely fashion.

All positions must also include a description of the student’s activities and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) career readiness competencies the student can expect to gain during the experience. These career competencies are essential for providing a rewarding experience for the student and ensuring the experience will provide valuable skills that can benefit the student upon graduation. If you would like additional support in developing your position descriptions, contact the Experiential Learning team at

Approval Process

All submitted positions are subject to ULN’s approval to ensure the experience will provide key skills for ULN students. ULN utilizes the NACE Seven Criteria for Internships to evaluate experiential learning opportunities. You may submit multiple internship proposals for different positions or one proposal for multiple students in the same position.

Once a proposal is received and reviewed, you will receive approval from ULN's Experiential Learning team. Once approved, the experience will be posted on HireUTexas powered by Handshake. If you have any questions, please contact the Experiential Learning team at
