Executive Director’s Welcome

James Tarbox

Welcome to San Diego State University Career Services. Our team is working diligently to provide the resources, partnerships and opportunities to empower SDSU students and alumni. 

In January 2020, we completed the roll out of Handshake to students, employers and recent alumni. View this video to see our campus introduction to Handshake.

We also open student registration for the Aztec Mentor Program on January 21. Juniors, seniors and graduate students are eligible to participate in this individualized mentoring program. Our new slogan, From Campus to Career, captures the power of building professional relationships to ensure lifelong career success.

If you seek to build your skills in areas such as resume development, job search, and interviewing, be sure to take advantage of our Spring 2020 workshop series.

December 2019 graduates, congratulations on your recent graduation! Please be sure to attend our upcoming career fairs and to enroll in the SDSU Alumni Association eNews to stay connected to campus.

Finally, our team looks forward to a productive Spring 2020 semester. We will engage students, alumni, employers, and other partners with programs such as our 2020 Annual Diversity Career Conference on Friday, February 21. Check our web site often to stay informed about the many opportunities that we are providing.
