Student Success Fees (Job & Internship Initiative)

Job & Internship Initiative Statement

The Career Center was allocated $151,402 of the $18,095,713 generated from the 2013/14 Student Success, Excellence & Technology Fee (SSETF). We utilized those funds to develop the Job & Internship Initiative (JII).



Ensure SJSU students are better positioned to compete for job & internship positions by
increasing student awareness of the importance of internships; increasing access to employment opportunities; and providing resources to help students best present their strengths and abilities.

2014-15 Goals

  • Increase job postings/openings for career, pre-career, local part-time, on-campus and Work Study jobs
  • Offer new opportunities to connect with employers 
  • Coordinate and deliver a minimum of one emerging market panel
  • Continue to provide access to on-line resources
