About Us

The UCLA Career Center offers services and resources to help UCLA students, UC graduates and employers reach their goals. As a UCLA student, from the first day you arrive, we can introduce you to an array of career possibilities and internships and help you explore the link between your major and career choices. As a UC alumnus or alumna, we can assist you in transitioning from your current occupation to your next dream job anywhere in the United States. If you're an employer, we can help you find energetic and intelligent UCLA students through Information Sessions, on campus interviewing, and job or internship listings online.

The UCLA Career Center is one of the largest and most comprehensive career centers in the nation. We are located in a state-of-the-art comprehensive facility in the heart of the UCLA campus on Westwood Plaza.

Our Mission

The UCLA Career Center empowers undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni to make informed career planning decisions through innovative programs, discipline-specific coaching, and employer connections.

Our discipline-specific approach meets the unique needs of students by integrating their academic training, campus experiences, and experiential learning as the building blocks for Career Readiness Competencies.

We build an ecosystem of industry partners and campus collaborators which strengthens our shared expertise and connects students with opportunities.

We are committed to creating intentional career communities where peer-to-peer learning and support is foundational for future growth.

We cultivate awareness of labor market trends through the dissemination of employment and graduate school outcomes of our students and alumni.

We lead the UCLA community in preparing for emerging industries and future career opportunities.
