Instructions for Posting Jobs and Internships

Employers can post jobs and internships free of charge using our online job board, SUNlink. The service allows students to view and apply for jobs and internships from any computer or mobile device. You can choose to receive student applications online, by email or through another method of your choice (e.g., company website, fax or phone). SUNlink is part of the NACElink OneStop Network

Volunteer positions can be posted through the Matador Involvement Center (MIC). You may reach the MIC at (818) 677-5111.

Instructions for First-Time Users

First-time users must register with the Career Center prior to posting a position. To log in, visit the SUNlink page, and enter the system as an Employer/Mentor. To post only at CSUN, select Register and Post a Local Position. Be sure to note the title of the forms as you move through the system. All fields marked with red asterisks (*) must be completed before continuing to the next step.

First, complete the Company Information form, and then select Next. Follow these helpful hints:

  1. The Description text box requires a brief description of your organization. Do not enter your job description here. The Job Description text box appears on the Position Information form.
  2. CSUN requires a full contact name, phone number and street address. P.O boxes are not accepted. 

Second, complete a Position Information form for each job posting. Use these helpful hints:

  1. Position Type
    • Only select Student Employment — Non Work-Study if the student will be working on campus in job code 1870, 1868 or 1874.
    • Only select Student Employment — Federal Work-Study if the student will be working on campus in job code 1871.
    • If posting an internship, visit the Internship Guidelines page to ensure compliance with CSUN and national employment laws, regulations and policies.
  2. Selecting Restrict Applications causes the Screening Criteria entered to be compared with a candidate's SUNlink profile. Any candidate who does not meet the screening criteria will be unable to apply for the position.
  3. For Position Title, enter the job title only.
  4. For Position Description, list the job duties and qualifications. These are required for approval of your posting. You may copy and paste text into the Position Description text box. See the Federal Work-Study website for required format and content if this is a Student Employment – Federal Work Study position.
  5. Do not post multiple jobs within one form. 

CSUN requires you to post both the hourly and salary compensation rate. Follow the instructions on the form. Contact Sarah Le Long at (818) 677-5563 to waive this requirement.

Drop-down menus, such as Major and Graduation Date, help students get an idea about the type of candidate you’re seeking. To see how your posting will be displayed to students, select Preview. When finished, select Submit for Career Center approval.

Postings must comply with Career Center policies, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Career Center usually approves posts within 24 hours, but approvals may take up to four business days.
