Career Development


How can SF State Services help you?

CSLD offers individualized career counseling for current students and alumni. Topics include Interviewing, Choosing a Major, Graduate School Advising, Handshake Assistance, Job & Internship Searching, and Resume & Cover Letter Review. Appointments generally last 30 minutes and can be scheduled on Handshake.
Drop-In Hours are available daily from 10-11am, and 2-3pm on a first-come, first-served basis. Drop-Ins last for 10 minutes are designed for students who have basic career questions or need a quick review of a resume, cover letter or online profile drop-Ins.
With a variety of career tests, our Career Counselors can help you learn more about your greatest career resource—YOU! These tools will help identify your strengths, values and interests so that you can make informed career decisions and articulate your unique brand. Featured tests include:
Resumes and cover letters are often your first contact with potential employers. We can help you make your job documents stand out above the competition. Services include:
  • Review of your current resume or cover letter
  • Advice on how to write a new resume or cover letter
Once you land an interview, you’ll need to showcase your best communication skills to receive that job offer. With help from our Career Counselors and innovative software like Big Interview, you’ll be ready for interview day.
There may not be much difference between personal and professional branding, but your professional brand is what matters to a potential employer, networking contact, or anyone who can help you find a job or grow your career. It's more than a case of making sure your personal brand reflects who are as a person. It's also making sure that the information available about you online is visible, available, and relevant to where you are in your career and where you want to go next.
