Employer partnerships

Best source of professional talent

San Diego State University represents the heart of San Diego. It is the oldest and largest university in the region, and many factors make it the best source of professional talent around.

But there can be challenges to recruiting at SDSU. With a student body of over 34,000 and hundreds of academic programs and student organizations, just finding your target populations can be daunting.

Once you do locate students, getting them to hear your message and connect with you may be another challenge.

Benefits of Partnership

By partnering with Career Services, you will benefit from our thorough knowledge of the SDSU campus and student body — and a network of connections we have continued to build over our 20-year history.

  • We have experience working with all types of companies and organizations to meet an array of recruitment needs
  • We can help you identify and connect with the types of students you seek
  • We’ll help you shape your message to resonate soundly with those students

Establish a Talent Pipeline
Establishing key relationships is vital to any measurement of success. Career Services at San Diego State University understands the importance of cultivating a strategic presence in order to build those relationships. From developing on-campus connections to showcasing industry leadership, our team can help promote your initiatives in creating long-term partnerships rather than short-term recruiting transactions.

What is the value of being a Partner?
The Employer Partnership Program provides a platform for your organization to cultivate a sustainable cycle of talent for the future by creating intentional recruitment strategies and engagement with SDSU students and alumni. Our center works with your organization to maximize the impact of campus outreach, increase visibility and access to students, and to provide consultation with Career Services staff, university faculty and administrators.

What do the levels of Partnership include?
The SDSU Career Services’ Employer Partnership Program consists of 4 levels all designed to provide a strategic recruiting advantage for your organization, specialized events, and targeted outreach across multiple media outlets. All partners receive customized expert recruitment and digital marketing consultations to meet your specific hiring needs.

Why should your organization become a Partner?
The return on investment (ROI) outweighs the nominal costs of an effective partnership by providing tailored and customized services to best showcase your organization and attract the large pool of talent that SDSU has to offer. The Employer Partnership Program provides a mechanism for employers to significantly streamline recruitment efforts, grow talent and reduce resources needed to find the right talent, lowering overall turnover.

How do I become a Partner?
For information on how your company may become a Partner or lend support to another SDSU program or fund, please send an email to Ramona Acuna, [email protected], Career Programming & Employer Outreach Counselor at SDSU Career Services, or call (619) 594-4381. All partnerships are accepted on an open enrollment basis and extend for a 12-month period and are tax deductible.
