The Career Development Center (CDC) has cultivated training resources, videos, and supplemental handouts that are designed to enhance workplace learning for current CSULB student assistants. To ensure that students are prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation, it is important that supervisors assist student assistants in the development of competencies needed to become career-ready.

Creating a Positive Workplace Culture

Student assistants are extremely talented and play an essential part in providing support across university departments. Since each student comes with different sets of skills, values, and backgrounds, it is important to create a positive workplace that is encouraging and suitable for all. To assist supervisors in fostering a positive workplace culture from day one, the CDC has organized the following training and orientation resources that are conducive to the development of characteristics such as good judgment, dependability, initiative, and responsibility.
