Career Services


As a faculty member or advisor, you play a critical role in students’ development by not only educating them in the classroom but also guiding the decisions they make about course offerings and career opportunities. Please send students to Career Services if they are:

  • Exploring interests and potential careers
  • Wondering what they can do with their major
  • Interested in applying for internships and jobs
  • In need of developing interpersonal skills
  • Struggling to describe their strengths and skills

Faculty Tool Kit

DOWNLOAD our Faculty Tool Kit

Our Faculty Tool Kit is a practical tool for preparing students for the world of work. It includes a guide for how faculty can partner with Career Services, NACE's career readiness competencies, our student map (which details how to support students through each phase of their professional development process) and more information on how Career Services partners with top employers seeking talented CSU students.


Here are additional ways to assist students...
Encourage Students to use Hire A Vike

This software hosts internships, jobs, co-ops and on-campus student employment. It is important for students to update their accounts and upload a resume in order to stay up-to-date on relevant career events and opportunities.

Support their Internship Search

Students should begin preparing their internship search materials to impress potential employers a semester ahead of time. When meeting with students, let them know that career specialists are available to assist them with all aspects of this process.
