Liberal Arts Career Services provides career coaching to currently enrolled degree-seeking Liberal Arts graduate students. Liberal Arts Career Services specifically supports students pursuing employment opportunities outside of academia. Tatem Oldham is a Graduate Career Coach and a licensed counselor with 15 years of experience in career counseling and hiring/recruiting. She specializes in helping humanities and social sciences graduate students transition into the world of work and effectively market themselves to potential employers. Tatem’s services include helping students convert their CVs to resumes, articulate their transferable skills to employers, and prepare for interviews. Tatem is most excited to help College of Liberal Arts students brainstorm potential career paths.

Tatem has limited ability to meet with students. Please email her directly at to schedule an appointment. In your email, please include a few days and times that would work well for your schedule.

Texas Career Engagement supports graduate students and postdoctoral scholars across the university. They can assist with ANY career search, including an academic position. Learn more about their upcoming events, find graduate student resources and schedule an appointment with one of their graduate career coaches.

You can simultaneously pursue faculty and non-faculty career paths. We encourage you to begin using our services and resources as soon as possible—ideally well before graduation so we can help you maximize your post-grad school employment options.
