GauchoLink is UCSB's official site for jobs, internships, and on-campus interviews. In addition, it serves as a gateway to subscription services that are free for UCSB students. GauchoLink is managed by career counselors and staff at UC Santa Barbara. It is an exclusive service for our UCSB community. Access is restricted to registered students with a current UCSB NetID, alumni within their grace period, and alumni who have purchased access from Career Services. We also welcome faculty and staff to become familiar with the system.

Advantages to using GauchoLink include:

  • It is the only place to access listings of work-study jobs for UCSB students;
  • Most of the jobs and internships listed are appropriate for college students; very few listings will require extensive experience;
  • Many of the listings are posted just for viewing by UCSB students, which means less competition for the positions.
