Students, alumni, and employers tell us that experience is the defining factor in career success. The experiences you have as a CSUF student, both inside and outside of the classroom, can connect you to professional opportunities that will excite you. Part of that means identifying your skills, abilities, interests, and values so that you are satisfied in a career.
Recent research at Cal State Fullerton indicates that most students work while they pursue their degree, and that even more students take advantage of internships, community service, volunteer opportunities, and student leadership assignments. Spending time on career exploration and gaining valuable work related experience is one of the best educational investments you can make. Related work experience is one of the best predictors of future professional success.
This Career Guide allows you to consider the many career possibilities related to your past experiences, academic program, lifestyle, and your location priorities. Think of it as a starting point in the process of putting your education to work.
