Searching for Job Opportunities

Interested in starting your career? Here are some job search tips and helpful links:

First, YOU need to decide what "sector" you might want to work in:  private (companies), public (gov't agencies and the like), or civil society (things like NGOs--non-governmental organizations).  Then you need to approach the job search as if it were a job itself; it takes that much time and effort!  Research potential companies, agencies, NGOs, other organizations, AND (most importantly!) the people that work in any place that you might be interested in.  Contact them to find out more about the particular organization, how they got their job, what they do, etc. 

You should sign up with SDSU Career Services (if you haven't already); then you'll receive things on a regular basis from them, especially about their excellent Aztec Mentoring Program.  Also check out the information from the Peace & Collaborative Development Network (PCDN).
