Success Stories

Hear from students who have utilized Graduate Business Career Services. 

“When first coming to "The Beach" I had little to no idea what career path I wanted to pursue. It wasn't until I began working with career services to overhaul my resume, cover letter and interview skills before I found a clear direction.

 Specifically working with CareerLINK I was able to search highly relevant positions to apply quickly and conveniently online. Within two weeks I was contacted for an interview and shortly after began my new position. With the help of career services I received a full-time offer before finishing my program.”

“Getting practical experience is as important as getting good grades in your academics. However, it is not as easy to enter the corporate world directly from school, as it requires proper guidance so that you move in the right direction. As an international student currently pursuing my Evening MBA it was very difficult for me to understand the job application process in the United States. During this period, it was Mr. Bert Rivera and Mrs. Michelle Levy from Graduate Business Career Services who helped during the entire process and I ended up getting a summer internship. They helped me by making my resume and cover letter suitable for my profile and provided me with interview tips, which I would not have known if I did not approach them. In addition, they guided me through various different sources available on CareerLINK where the local as well as global job postings are located. Even today, if I have any doubts, I approach them and they answer all my queries in a very friendly manner. I would strongly advise all my classmates to at least visit them once and take their guidance. Trust me, it is for your own benefit and the visit will definitely be fruitful.”

“Graduate Business Career Services (GBCS) patiently worked with me to revise my resume and craft cover letters that stood out from the rest.  Working with GBCS I experienced invitations to interviews skyrocketed. Additionally, GBCS helped me strategize for upcoming interviews and coached me on fine tuning my answers and refining questions. Fast forward to today, I’m in my dream job working with and for people I respect and admire doing what I love: being of service and making a difference in people’s lives..”

-Mickie Tagle, Saturday MBA Student, Class of 2018


“Attending and participating in CSULB Graduate Business Career Services workshops, helped me to confidently communicate my education and experience that fit into my desired position in Supply Chain Management during my internship search.  Accepting my internship was the culmination of my invested time in services and resources that were offered like “Resume Writing” and “Preparing for the Job Fair” workshops, Graduate Career Mentor Program, and the Graduate Business Resume Book.  The staff worked with me to ensure my resume and interview skills were optimal for a successful employment process.  With a busy school and personal schedule, the office made it easy to meet my needs before class.  I highly recommend graduate students to use this resource to make meaningful strides toward their career goals.”

"My career goal immediately after graduation was to obtain a rigorous, demanding and rewarding position as I wanted to gain practical corporate experiences in many areas of a business. I’m delighted to say that I recently received a full-time offer before the completion of my MBA program all thanks to Graduate Business Career Services (GBCS). GBCS helped me during the entire process, from writing a resume to training me on delivering an elevator pitch. They have showed me how to make myself more marketable, and with the current job market, that is a value that can’t be measured.

They are dedicated professionals who value the students that seek their assistance and will give you 100% of their time and effort. I encourage other graduate students to explore the amazing services provided by GBCS because it will positively impact your career. I highly recommend students to take advantage of the ‘Resume Book’ as GBCS constantly sends it to companies. GBCS is one of the most influential factors in the transition from college to my career. The help and information that was provided to me has been extremely valuable."
