    Current Employee - Director of Career Services  in  Knoxville, TN
    Current Employee - Director of Career Services in Knoxville, TN

    Pros

    Great support with Student Life Division, excellent professionals to work with, work with top employer brands, great student base and excellent business and engineering colleges. Knoxville is a great blend of lifestyles and solid middle class. Could be a more diverse environment but improvements are being made. Downtown revitilization is helping make Knoxville a great place for recent grads to start their careers.

    Cons

    State budgets, politics and some leadership turnover. Lofty goals and objectives will lead to improvements although it remains unlcear if final goals will be reached. More and more emphasis on private financial support makes success seem overly dependent on the state of the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to strive for the ability for UT to make its own decisions independent from the UT System.
