The measurement and use of student learning outcomes in higher education has become an integral part of strategic planning and program development. As institutions have become increasingly focused on improving college readiness and graduation rates, understanding what contributes to student learning and development has become imperative. At CSULB, the Career Development Center has been actively engaged in identifying and collecting data concerning learning outcomes at the program level, and using these findings to adjust practices and procedures.
The CSULB Career Development Center participates in the annual National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) survey of college students to identify:
Data report on CSULB undergraduates’ knowledge about how they perceive the job market, what aspirations and expectations they have, as well as insight into general student preferences on ideal employers. The Universum Student Survey is conducted annually.
Coming soon the Universum Student Survey (Undergraduate Edition) 2011

We make no representations or guarantees about positions listed by the office. The CDC is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the volume of jobs received by this office, we are unable to research the integrity of each organization or person that lists a job with us. Students and alumni are urged to use common sense when applying for any job, especially if it is a domestic role or the place of employment is a private home.
