The Career Development Center at FPU is your Premier Resource

Our purpose is to equip you to discover your calling and empower you to use your strengths and fulfill God’s plan for you. Our services are available to all Students and Alumni! Check out the services we offer below.

On-Campus Job Listings

All on-campus job listings are posted in Handshake. Handshake is an online job board that is focused solely on connecting college students with internships and jobs. You can create a free account, then use the job board to keep an eye out for new on-campus job listings when they are posted, as well as to research companies who are targeting college students/grads in their recruitment efforts. If you find any on-campus positions that you would like to apply for, please complete and return the attached application to career.services@fresno.edu. Check out our Handshake Guide to learn more.

We also offer virtual, phone, and email appointments, as well as occasional regional campus appointments. For more details and to schedule an appointment, click your campus below.
