Sponsors & Professionals Frequently Asked Questions

How can I help sponsor Opportunity Days?
You may choose to sponsor opportunity days through several levels. Please check the 2024 Registration Levels webpage for additional information.

I want to interview; what should I do?
All interviews are facilitated by the Texas Tech University Career Center (UCC). Upon registering for Opportunity Days, you will be connected with a UCC representative to set up your job/internship posting and arrange interview details. 

How long do the interviews last? Who can I interview?
As the interviewer, you set your own interview schedule. Most firms like to spend 30 minutes to one hour per interview.  You may interview the students for internships or full-time openings. The choice is yours.

I am an employer, and I am having problems looking at student résumés and posting my job. Who can help me?
Please contact Ashley Penner at the Texas Tech University Career Services.

I want to post a job but not attend Opportunity Days or Fall Career Day; what should I do?
If you would like your job to be promoted on our student job board, please contact Mackenzie Weathers, and she will let you know our process for posting jobs.

My sponsorship level gives me tickets to the banquet that I will not be using; what am I supposed to do?
Nothing. If your firm cannot attend the banquet, you have no obligation to find a use for the tickets. The money raised through sponsorships helps to keep the cost of the banquet down for the students. 

Can we help sponsor Opportunity Days and not attend?
Absolutely! We will ensure that your name/company receives the recognition designated with the sponsorship level of your choice. You do not have to attend any of the events to help sponsor Opportunity Days. Thank you in advance for your support!

How do I pay for my sponsorship or banquet ticket(s)?
You may pay for your registration online via credit card through our TouchNet Store
If you prefer to pay via check, please make the check payable to PFPCareer Development Fund and mail it to Katelyn Booth, 1301 Akron Ave., CoHS Rm. 260, Lubbock, TX 79409. 

If I cannot attend Opportunity Days, can I come to Texas Tech and interview the students at a different time? Or I need to hire in the fall, may I come?
Yes, you can interview at any point during the year! During Opportunity Days, the School of Financial Planning releases students from classes to help students make time for interviews and scheduled events to facilitate networking. Opportunity Days is the only time of year that we can provide extensive scheduling support for interviews. If you would like to recruit in the fall, we encourage you to join us for our Fall Career Day event.

As a visitor, can I park on campus?
Visitor parking and pay-to-park lots are available on-campus. Upon arriving on campus, please check in with a parking kiosk, and they can provide you with additional parking information.
