The Career Center is here to help students get set up for success during and after their college experience. We have so many resources available that students can greatly benefit from. We want to make sure faculty and students are informed about the resources available through the Career Center. This is why we offer First-Year Seminar Presentations upon request. This is an opportunity for a Career Center staff member to visit your classroom and conduct an interactive session on the career planning process and our programs and services.

At this time due to overwhelming demand, we are no longer able to accept program requests for First Year Seminar or other Presentations; however, we offer a lot of wonderful services in the Career Center that can be equally as beneficial. For more information about the workshops and events we are offering for the Spring 2018 semester please refer to our website: csus.edu/careercenter

We also recommend that you consider inviting your students to participate in our 1 on 1 Resume Review event March 6 th from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm in the Redwood Room or our other Career Center events and workshops. Another alternative for your individual students who need an overview of Career Center services is to stop by the Career Center for drop-in career counseling Monday-Friday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
