Zócalo

Zócalo Icon

We have designed Zócalo, an online advising platform, to transform the job and internship search process for our students and alumni.

Here you will find the following tools:

  • A database of jobs, fellowships, and internship positions that we update daily. You can save and print search results, add favorites, and conduct advanced searches.
  • A database of over 2,000 local, regional, and international organizations.
  • A personal profile where you will develop a study plan and resume, collaborate with advisors, and build your personal brand.

We have created two short videos to orient you to the Zócalo system. Check out Part 1 and Part 2 here.
