Sandra Charfauros

Assistant to the Director

Administrative Services

California State East Bay (when it was fondly called Cal State Hayward)

How did you get here?
I arrived at Cal merely by chance and extremely grateful to be offered a position - finally! I applied at Cal many times and kept receiving the generic letters "Thank you for your interest in working for UC Berkeley, however, ..." Finally, I got called for an interview, asked to return for a second round and offered the job.

What's cool about your job?
Working with such a talented and professional staff is definitely a plus for me! My colleagues at the Career Center demonstrate a high level of expertise each and every day. In addition, Cal has amazing students that I am fortunate to meet and interact with throughout the year.

What's the best career advice anyone has given you?
Never stop learning and acquiring new skills in the office as well as outside of the office.
