Posting Paid Opportunities

If you are posting a paid role, we invite you to review SF State's Policy and Guidelines regarding professional recruiting announcements and activities.

Posting Unpaid Opportunities

While the university and the CSPD Center strongly feel it is critical to compensate students for internships, IF you are posting an unpaid professional opportunity, we invite you to read the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Position Statement on U.S. Internships. This position statement is an accurate source you can use to help determine if your opportunity is appropriate for posting with us.

The Jobs and Internships Request Form

After reading our guidelines and policies, complete the Jobs and Internship Announcement Form. We will review your request and get back to you within 24 to 48 hours.

Finally, If you feel your job is not within the scope of programs and majors offered within the Lam Family College of Business, we encourage you to post your announcement using San Francisco State University's Handshake platform.
