Who We Serve

Current Jackson School students

  • JSG Career Services have a wide range of resources to guide enrolled JSG undergraduate and graduate students with the internship and job search process. Whether it’s reviewing your resume or helping you plan for graduate school, we encourage students at all stages of career planning to visit our office.

Jackson School Alumni

  • Our alumni are welcome to use JSG Career Services free of charge for an unlimited time except for on-campus interviews. Alumni who are early-career scientists may find entry-level positions on Handshake that are aligned with the degree received at the Jackson School of Geosciences. Depending on career experience, alumni are also encouraged to research job opportunities through professional organizations, like AAPG, SEG, GSA and AGU. The HookedIn online networking platform is useful for making professional connections with Jackson School and UT-Austin Alumni. If alums are not available for an in-office appointment, a phone or video consultation can be arranged for career coaching.


  • We offer a variety of programs and opportunities that connect employers and students throughout the year. If you’re interested in working with our office to recruit Jackson School students, please check out our page For Employers or email Career Services Director Jennifer Jordan (jjordan@jsg.utexas.edu).
