Recruit Our Students
CSUF Business Career Services is now on Handshake! Recruiting business students has never been easier! Connect with us on Handshake and post your positions for business-related opportunities.
All employers should post their positions on Handshake, our primary job and internship posting site for business students. This will allow you to specify candidate criteria, collect and view resumes via the online system, as well as allow students to search and apply for your opportunity.
For employers wishing to recruit non-business majors or wanting to cross promote your position to majors outside of business, the positions must be posted on the University Career Center’s Titan Connection (Symplicity) job board database.
Academic internships (in which students earn course-credit) must be approved with our Center for Internships and Community Engagement (CICE) before students can begin to work. Check out the guidelines and how to register with CICE.
You can also email the job description to email@example.com for inclusion in our weekly e-newsletter, distributed to all undergraduate and graduate business students.
We encourage you to work with our employer relations team to identify target student organizations, academic departments, and/or Centers of Excellence through which to market your opportunity. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Job Posting Policies
Employers who wish to recruit CSUF students and alumni through job postings, events or interviews are expected to interact with students, alumni and staff in a professional and ethical manner.
To recruit for employment, employers must abide by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines for Prohibited Employment Policies and Practices Overview. We recommend employers be familiar with NACE and EEOC standards prior to posting positions or participating in recruiting events. Cal State Fullerton expects all employers and their representatives to abide by federal and state employment laws and to honor the university’s commitment to equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in their recruiting and hiring practices.
All employers who participate in our recruiting programs are expected to adhere to the guidelines and policies outlined in the CSUF Employer Recruiting Policies (PDF).
To foster a strong working relationship, we also encourage you to partner with the University Career Center when recruiting at CSUF. We look forward to welcoming you onto campus!
Please refer to our Guidelines and Requirements (PDF) for more information on our job posting policies.
CSUF Business Career Services partners with the Center for Internships and Community Engagement (CICE) to provide internship opportunities for our students. An internship is an approved and supervised work experience that meets specific student learning goals related to an academic field of study. Our students are eligible to participate in a variety of internships including the traditional full-time summer internships and the non-traditional, during the semester, part-time or project-based internships.
At CSUF, internships can be offered as both paid and unpaid. If the internship is unpaid, it must be offered as an academic internship where the student earns academic credit for work done at an internship site. Unpaid (academic) internship will need to be approved by CICE as follow. A paid internship can be offered as both an “internship” (non-academic credit) or as an “academic internship” (academic credit). All paid business-related internship positions should be posted on Handshake.
Academic internships must be approved with CICE before students can begin to work. Check out the guidelines and how to register with CICE. Approved academic internships will be posted on the university Career Center’s Titan Connection (Symplicity) job board database in order for students to apply and qualify for academic credit.
Employers wishing to develop an internship opportunity are encouraged to contact our Employer Relations team at email@example.com.
