How You Can Help Your Student

At SDSU Career Services, we do our best to help all students reach their goals and find their professional path to success. As a parent you can also help by encouraging your student to:

  • Set up an Aztec Career Connection account - All students should register with Aztec Career Connection. Benefits include access to job and internship postings, career fairs, information sessions, workshops, and notices about upcoming events.
  • Participate in High-impact Experiences - Encourage learning inside and outside the classroom by helping your student tie academics to real-life experience. Encourage your student to participate in:
    • Internships - Not all majors require an internship experience, but all students can benefit from one. And it's never too early to start!

    • Aztec Mentor Program (AMP) - All students are encouraged to find a mentor, who can show and tell what a career is really like — as well as share personal experience and advice.  AMP is offered every semester, to connect students with mentors in their chosen career field.
  • Attend Career Services Workshops and Events - Each semester, Career Services offers career fairs, workshops, and information sessions designed to help students develop professionalism. These programs help students navigate, understand, and connect to a professional network.  View our current Workshops and Events Schedule.
