CAREER EVENTS

As part of their hiring strategies, many employers want to establish visibility for their organization at SF State and to have the opportunity to talk to students face-to-face. This can be accomplished by participating in a variety of on-campus career events coordinated by the Office of Career Services and Leadership Development in collaboration with colleges, academic departments, and student organizations. SF State offers several large-scale career events. These include: a fall and spring career fair, a part-time job fair and a graduate school fair. For more information in participating in our events, please contact us by emailing for more information, recruit@sfsu.edu.
