Landing your first job
Career Development Center
Recent CSULB Graduates
Recent graduates have continued access to all career services. As a recent graduate, a former student who graduated within the last 12 months, your “student” status will be updated to “alumni”. As an alumnus over the next few months, you will start to lose access to various chicklets in MyApps/SSO. You will need to access CareerLINK directly from the CareerLINK Alumni Sign-In.
Whether you just graduated or received your CSULB degree many years ago, the Career Development Center (CDC) can assist you with your career transition and job search by providing access to career assessments, counseling, online job boards, and networking opportunities with employers.
Join Beach Nexus, CSULB's mentoring and networking platform to explore career paths, view our job board and seek advice and mentorship from CSULB Alumni who have been in your shoes.
