Career Services recognizes that employers are increasingly interested in internships. We manage a clearinghouse for campus internships, and we'll gladly work with you to assess your needs. 

Partnership benefits

SDSU Career Services is your connection to SDSU students and alumni. Our office partners with academic departments, student organizations, and SDSU Alumni Association to provide a campus portal to employers.

Partnering with Career Services for an Aztec Opportunity Alliance Program sponsorship is the best way to amplify your recruitment efforts and build your brand into a recognized mainstay of recruiting at SDSU.

Career fairs, college-based speed networking events, mentoring programs and employer information sessions link employers to students — while giving students direct access to internships, part-time and summer jobs, and full-time employment.

With your registration, a wide array of services and resources are available to your organization!

We value our partnership with you!
