At Union Pacific, our power lies in our team - which is more than 46,000 individuals strong. We build on this strength by recruiting people with unique talents and skills. We believe this cultivates an environment of opportunity and inclusion, where you're able to contribute, make an impact and ultimately define your own success.

To help us find talented candidates, we have formal relationships with colleges and other programs. We also sponsor a variety of recruiting events and career fairs.

On-Campus Recruiting

We schedule our hiring events at college campuses from September through the beginning of November - and again in the spring. These events are great opportunities for you to visit with recruiters and to ask specific questions about our company. This map shows our anticipated schedule by location.

If Union Pacific comes to your campus and you express interest in our positions, you should apply through your campus career center. After you've submitted your application, you could be extended an invitation for a first-round interview. If that interview goes well, you will be invited to a second-round interview at Union Pacific's headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.

Applying Online

If Union Pacific does not visit your college campus, you may apply online for one of our posted positions. This process takes about 15 minutes - and allows - you to submit your resume with the online application. After you're finished, you will be able to check your application status online.
