SDSU Career Services: What year are you in school?
I am senior and I am graduating in two more semesters.
SDSU CS: Throughout your college career, how have you utilized our services?
I was lucky enough to find out about career services on my second semester at state. I used almost all of the features career services offers to its students, but the ones I used the most were the career counselors and the mock interviews, which let me say were very helpful in obtaining the internship I have now.

I am majoring in Communication and getting a minor in Social Media. I am currently a Public Information Management intern at the Public Utilities Department. I am working on their Social Media Platforms. I was also involved in the Department’s Annual Review Presentation and in its new branding campaign.
SDSU CS: Has Career Services helped you prepare for the job market?
Yes, it definitely helped me prepare and obtain a very cool internship! I will recommend everyone to go and check out the opportunities offered by Career Services at SDSU!
