Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I am not a current College of San Mateo student but a member of the community. May I use Career Services?  Our services are for CSM students. Community members may participate in our job fairs and career events.

I'm undecided about finding a major and future career. Can Career Services help me?
Yes. In addition to providing career assessment courses, we also have career counselors who can assist you in exploring your career options and researching majors and careers that are a good fit with you.

How can Career Services help me find a job?
One of the best ways to find a job, internship or volunteer work is to register on CSM JobLinks and search our database of on- and off-campus positions posted by local employers seeking CSM student workers. You can also register for CRER 127, our comprehensive job search class which assists you in developing a resume and cover letter, finding job leads, and interviewing effectively. Our skilled career counselors can provide tips for finding the hidden job market and how to land a job even in a down market.

As an employer, how can I post job or internship position(s)?
Use our free online job posting program, CSM JobLinks. Log onto CSM JobLinks, set up an account and post your job. Your listing will be available to hundreds of students registered with CSM JobLinks. As a CSM JobLinks employer, you'll also be notified of upcoming job fairs and other campus events that you might want to participate in.

I'm in a hurry and don't have time to meet with a career counselor. Do you have information that I can review?
You will find resources and information within the "Students" section of this career site.
