It’s the Hook Up!
Texas Exes Career Network
The Career Network consists of Texas Ex members & Longhorn alumni who have volunteered to be Career Contacts, agreeing to share career insight & experience with association members and current students through information sessions. Profiles of contacts are available and how they are able to assist. What better way to determine if a career path will suit you than to talk with someone who is currently in it!
Info session via phone or email

LinkedIn is a social networking site used by millions worldwide. It is used primarily for professional networking and making business connections more than anything else. The Texas Exes have an official group on LinkedIn, and you can join the group once you have completed a profile. You can then identify Texas Exes and email them directly through LinkedIn's email system, "InMail", for free--messaging between group members is free. To complete a profile, go to LinkedIn.com
The LInkedIn group is for members of the UT-Austin community who want to connect with other Longhorns. We currently have 14,000+ members in our group. To request to join our group, you first MUST BE an alumnus, current student, current faculty/staff of The University of Texas at Austin or a current member of the Texas Exes Alumni Association.
To join, go to the Texas Exes LinkedIn Group to request approval.
Allow 2-3 days for your request to be processed. There's no need to send an email requesting approval -- you are automatically in the pending folder.
After you are approved, it may take up to 24 hours for the Texas Exes logo to appear on your profile. We hope you will enjoy the Texas Exes group on LinkedIn so that you may connect with other Longhorns, both in your city and around the globe!
