Tremendous student employment opportunities abound here in the Silicon Valley, the high-tech capital of the world. Many of our students are able to secure well-paying jobs in a variety of different fields, all within walking distance or a short drive from our centrally-located campus. For students planning to work off-campus while enrolled at Golden State, it would be helpful for you to do a couple things before arriving in Santa Clara. These will give you an advantage in securing a good job that will work with your college schedule:
1. Establish a work history. Employers are sometimes wary to hire someone without any job experience.
2. Prepare a resume that can be e-mailed or faxed to prospective employers. Many times, you can begin your job search before you even arrive on campus by sending your resume ahead of you.
Should you have any questions relating to the job market and employment opportunities, please contact our student employment director, Hans Nikoley.
