CSU Career Services are also a regional resource for information related to college student recruiting and hiring practices.
In 2011, the CSU conducted a survey of nearly 1,000 employers who hired students and recent graduates across California. The results identify critical hiring factors, hiring trends, and the performance of recent CSU graduates compared to all recent graduates hired by these employers over the past three years. Employers identified four areas where CSU graduates they had hired were rated significantly above the pool of all college graduates they had hired: teamwork; flexibility to respond to changing work demands; capability to learn what is necessary to be effective in their assignments; and representing the diversity of the emerging workplace.
