Career Services

You advanced your education with CSU Online; now you probably want to advance your career. The CSU Career Center can help you find a new job or otherwise spur your professional progress.

All career services are free to alumni for one year after graduating. After that first year, you can schedule a free one-on-one session with a career counselor each year. In addition, these services are available to all alumni:

  • Search for jobs and internships and post your resume on Handshake, the CSU online career service center.
  • Post jobs and internships on Handshake to attract qualified CSU students and alumni.
  • Ask or answer career questions through Handshake. Becoming a mentor helps CSU students gain insight and begin their professional networking.

  • Contact a CSU career counselor for an appointment.
  • Have a career counselor critique your resume and cover letter.
  • Get valuable job search tips and information on the Handshake page.

Some CSU colleges and departments provide specific alumni resources. Check with the department from which you graduated to find out what services they might provide and what connections they can help you make.

Accreditation Information for Future Employers

Your current or future employers should know that a distance or online degree from CSU is the same as a traditional degree earned on campus. CSU Online programs carry the regional accreditation of Colorado State University as they use the same high-quality curriculum and respected faculty as on-campus programs.
