Find Jobs and Internships

SUNlink offers access to our job board and online career services. In SUNlink, you can find and apply for jobs and internships, sign-up for Career Center events and workshops, upload your resume, practice interviewing or schedule an on-campus interview. All on-campus federal work-study jobs and most student assistant positions are posted in SUNlink. More than 500 CSUN alumni are available through the Matador Network to mentor you on your educational and career goals. 

If you are new to SUNlink, you will need to register and complete a profile. Your profile information is important because employers often use that information in searching for candidates who meet certain job qualifications. When registering for the first time, you need to contact the Career Center for the initial password and instructions. We recommend you use your CSUN portal email address as your user name.

Meet Your Peer Educators

The mission statement of the peer educator program is, "By building meaningful peer-to-peer interactions, we help students on their journey from academic to professional career."

When you visit the Career Center, you will most likely meet a peer educator. The peer educators are here to help you get started.

Our current peer educators are students like you, who are familiar with the career development process and can speak to you about Career Center resources, resume and cover letter development, and job search strategies.

They can also just listen as you begin sorting out what your next steps should be. You may also see the career peer educators on campus as they share the resources of the Career Center.

Check out our video for more information on our peer educators. You can contact the peer educators by either stopping by the Career Center located in University Hall 105, emailing us at or calling (818) 677-2878.



Hello! My name is Julie Lopez, and I am a second year Peer Educator at the Career Center.  I am from Hanford, California, which is near Fresno.  Currently, I am a junior at CSUN, majoring in Kinesiology.  After I graduate from CSUN, I plan to complete a graduate program in Occupational Therapy.  Discovering my interests really helped me decide to be a Kinesiology major because I felt that I had a connection with it due to my athleticism.  Aside from my career, I also hope to coach soccer for the youth.  I am an athletic person and love to get involved in outdoor activities.  You’ll most likely see me running around campus or playing intramural soccer at the Student Recreation Center.

In my free time, I like to do many things.  I love to play and watch soccer with friends, workout at the gym, go to the beach, watch Netflix, listen to music, and dance.  I am a very down to earth and friendly person, who likes to meet new people and try new things.  Some of my favorite places to go are Sequoia National Park or Yosemite during winter.  I love to hike and go sledding at these areas.  It is a wonderful setting and I would recommend everyone to go visit.

As a second year Peer Educator, I am very excited to share these experiences with you all.  We are here to help and guide students through their professional development.  I invite you all to come to the Career Center to learn about the different resources that can benefit you in decision making and accomplishing your career goals.



Hello! My name is Alexis Gonzalez, and I am currently a senior at CSUN, majoring in Psychology.  I hope to pursue a career in which it will enable me to continue my own personal development and utilize my skills to help other people.  I aspire to become a licensed clinical psychologist and work with college students to improve their quality of life, and any impediments that may deter them from achieving academic success.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and friends, swimming, dancing, working out, and listening to music.  I am really grateful to have joined the Career Center team three years ago as a Peer Educator.  What I love best about working here, is being able to help CSUN students and alumni with any career related questions they may have, such as learning more about a major, exploring occupations, figuring out what to do after graduation, and much more.  I will try my best and hopefully cause a great impact in their career goals.

Please do come by and take advantage of all the resources we offer.  You would be surprised by how much you can learn from one visit.  If you happen to see me around in the Career Center, please don’t hesitate to approach me.  I look forward to seeing you soon! 



Hello, my name is Valeria Ramirez-Gomez.  I am currently a junior at CSUN, majoring in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science.  After graduation, I hope to further my education and earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy.  In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors and participating in activities such as swimming, hiking, and walking my dogs.

 My freshman year, I entered CSUN as an Athletic Training major due to my love of sports. However, I was not sure that I really wanted to become an Athletic Trainer.  I discussed my concerns with a friend and she recommended that I go on the Career Center’s website and take a look at Pathways.  I explored Pathways and it helped me organize my thoughts and put into perspective what I enjoyed.  I later changed my major to Kinesiology Exercise Science. Discussing my concerns with my peers helped me decide what career path to take.  I now know I will go on to pursue a career as a Physical Therapist.  I wish to make an impact on students’ lives and lead them towards the right path by providing them with the career center resources such as Pathways.

 This is my first year as a Peer Educator. I look forward to meeting with you all and answering any questions you may have.    



Hello! My name is Monique Thompson and I am currently a junior at CSUN, majoring in psychology.  My career goals, after I graduate, would be to obtain a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and pursue an occupation in counseling.  In addition, I would like to receive my teaching credentials to teach at a middle school, high school, or college.  During my free time, I enjoy traveling and singing within my church choir, participating in African dance classes at my local community center, and doing any challenging outdoor activities.

I find that being a Peer Educator is preparing and training me for my future aspirations as a counselor and it is allowing me to have the opportunity to collaborate with my fellow peers, advising them on their career and professional decisions.  I enjoy reaching out to students and my ambition is to encourage and guide them as they maneuver along their career path.  If you feel lost or confused about your future, come visit the Career Center and a Peer Educator will assist you.  Hope to see you soon!!!



 Hi Everyone!  My name is Kwesi and I am a senior here at CSUN.  After graduation, I want take a year off from school to travel the world and maybe volunteer for the Peace Corps.  I am currently majoring in Health Administration and am eventually going to grad school for a Master’s in Public Health or Counseling.  Learning about the many possible opportunities that I can do after college at the Career Center has really helped me plan my future.

During my free time, you might see me in the kitchen trying out new baking and cooking recipes to share with my friends and family.  I love being involved on campus because you get the ability to meet new people and learn new things as well. Currently, I hold a leadership position in my fraternity as President.
