Alumni Career Spotlights Help


SJSU iSchool Alumni Career Spotlights are unique pages for alumni on the iSchool website Content Management System (CMS). These pages are public and later may be edited by the alum after publication.

Process Description

To create a Career Spotlight page is a simple, 3-step process:

  1. Signup for access to the iSchool CMS by filling out this Career Spotlights signup form. You will receive an email from the site administrator (within 2 business days) which will contain an invitation to join the iSchool CMS as an Alum user.
  2. Upon receipt of the new user email invitation, follow the 1-time sign-in URL to establish a permanent password. Completing this process forwards you to your default user profile page.
  3. Follow the "Create my Alumni Career Spotlight" link on your default user profile page (can't miss it!) and fill out the form. Save your work for later, or tick the box to have your page reviewed prior to publication.

Access to iSchool CMS

The user menu of the iSchool CMS is found at the bottom of each page under our address. See:

When you have finished working on your Career Spotlight page, click the "logout" link. Use the "login" link to access your user profile. After you have created a Career Spotlight page, your menu will display a link to the existing Career Spotlight page rather than an invitation to create a new one.

Edit Existing Career Spotlight Page

To edit your previously published Alumni Career Spotlight page, login via the user menu. Click the "View/Edit your alumni Career Spotlight" link on your user page page.  This will take you to your current profile as viewed by web visitors. Click the "Edit latest"  tab (red arrow in image below). Follow the same procedure for publication (tick the "submit my information" box to have a moderator review and publish edits).



Use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page if you should encounter difficulties with the process.
