You are encouraged to meet with a career counselor to develop your individualized job search plan. Your career counselor can help you clarify your career goals, identify relevant resources, and discuss strategies for your job search. To schedule an appointment, please call (805) 756-2501, ext. 4.

To get you started, some useful online resources are provided below. Please keep in mind that the most successful job searches involve a comprehensive approach (e.g. networking, career fairs, informational interviews). Plan to use a variety of job search strategies and resources rather than conducting your entire job search online.
