Employer Events

Fairs are a great way for employers to meet talented and career-ready SF State students. Our semesterly fairs provide employers with the opportunity to recruit students for part-time, full-time, and internship positions.

Employer Insight sessions allow employers to facilitate and host regular workshops designed to give students a peek behind the recruiting & hiring curtain. To learn more about hosting at a session, please contact recruit@sfsu.edu.

Promote your organization and career opportunities to students alongside three other employers. Each employer has approximately 15-minutes to present during the hour. To participate, employers must have a paid job or internship available within the next six months. Table Talks are free of charge and distributed to employers on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

CLD is dedicated to cultivating events that allows you to meet and network with prospective SF State candidates in an intimate setting to share information about your organization, culture, and industry. Our staff will work with your organization to coordinate a tailored Employer Spotlight event. Fees may apply.
