Career Planning and Placement Center Launches Expanded Titan Connection Job Search System


August 28, 2003

Cal State Fullerton’s Career Planning and Placement Center has launched an expanded version of the Titan Connection job search system for students. The new system combines the cutting-edge technology of the award- winning CSUF Student Portal with several new options to help students find full-time jobs, internships and career related part-time jobs, both on and off campus, in a highly secure and easy to use format.

Enhanced Flexibility and Ease of Use
The new system provides an integrated view of jobs from several sources, including various internship and job fairs, campus interviews and job postings. “On one screen, students can see not only the many jobs that are available from all of these sources,” said Jim Case, director of the Career Planning and Placement Center, “but also which of the positions match their major and career interests.” The new system also features an option for students to set electronic agents that will automatically send an email whenever new positions are added that meet their criteria. “In the past, many students missed key opportunities if they failed to check several different sources on a frequent basis,” Case said. “The new system allows students to manage their time much more effectively.” A new online calendar also enables students to set alerts to make sure that they do not miss crucial deadlines and events.

New Tools for Students
The system encourages employers participating in any of the services offered by the career center to post current positions, create profiles of their organizations and direct interested students to their websites for more information. Students can apply to any positions for which they qualify online, as well as bookmark favorite employers for further research and follow-up.
Given the growing concern about the volume of unsolicited email, the system is designed to let students control the electronic communication from the career center. By default, the system notifies students of the many steps in the campus interview scheduling process, yet the student can turn these notices off, if they choose. In addition, students can choose whether they want to be on other distribution lists to receive notices concerning career opportunities, events and available resources. For example, interested students can choose to be notified when an internship sponsor visits campus to discuss opportunities with students.

More Jobs
The expanded Titan Connection also gives students secure access to a growing database of national employers seeking to hire graduating college students (NaceLink Connect) and a database of strong regional opportunities also focused on college students (MonsterTrak). The Student Portal limits access to enrolled students and recent graduates, consistent with the competitive edge that graduation from the University provides alumni. As the new alumni portal comes online in the near future, plans are to expand these resources to experienced alumni, as well, to extend the university’s efforts to provide a continuing connection with the Titans.
