Building Your Brand at Fresno State

At the Career Development Center, we are here to help you build your brand at Fresno State.

Today's college student has a lot on their plate. Between worrying about financial aid, exams and registering for classes, students do not have a lot of time to research employers, jobs or internships. And with over 5,000 companies in our HireFresnoState database, it can be a bit overwhelming.
