Cultivate Success

The UCLA Career Center serves as a critical link between the needs of our students to those of our alumni and community employers, working diligently to provide novel, pioneering programs and training to develop their professional skills.  

Help the UCLA Career Center continue their important work in career and personal development designed to help UCLA students and alumni stand out and get hired in their position of choice. 

As soon as UCLA students arrive on campus, the Career Center introduces students to an array of career possibilities and internships that help them explore the link between their major and career choices. 

The Career Center staff offers services and resources to help students make informed career planning decisions through innovative programs, employer connections and more. Donor support provides the Career Center with the opportunity to adjust and grow their program according to fluctuating student needs. 

Amid the pandemic and the uncertainties regarding the future of work, the UCLA Career Center has reimagined how to assist students in this virtual world. The Center's focus has shifted to providing resources so that students can successfully search for a job online and ace a virtual interview. Unfortunately for our students, the job market continues to fluctuate with many companies pausing internships or limiting their hiring during this time.

In this competitive job market UCLA needs the support to meet the increasing demand of their services and to produce quality resources for their students.

The UCLA Career Center has a variety of new and exciting opportunities to support over 45,000 students on campus. 

The Center's student-centered current needs and future projects are outlined in each of the giving levels.

All gifts to the UCLA Career Center will support students through the intricacies of career preparation and personal developmentPersonalized services such as resume guidance and career readiness preparation are essential to students and provide a solid foundation to begin their career journeys. With security and confidence, students can explore additional technology tools and career events that take their knowledge and career preparation to the next level.  

Thank you! A gift of any size is appreciated and makes a direct impact on the UCLA Career Center and its ability to serve students both now and in the future. Your generosity gives UCLA students the opportunity to benefit from the best technology, support and innovation in career guidance. 

Thank you for helping the UCLA Career Center remain competitive and produce UCLA students that are ready to change the world. You are supporting the next generation of Bruin graduates.

The Career Center will use your gift to sustain the availability and creation of career exploration tools, resume tools, and online workshops.

Career Coach

Your gift will go to the UCLA Career Center Readiness Program, which helps students feel confident in their career candidacy by providing career benchmarks for students throughout their time at UCLA. This program guides students through identifying their strengths, preparing for interviews, and navigating a successful job search process.


Resume Reviewer

$100 will go towards purchasing the newest resume optimization platform available and ensuring accessibility for both undergraduate and master’s candidate students. Resume optimization will qualify a students uploaded resume, make suggestions and measure impact.


Internship Grant

43% of work internships are unpaid*, which limits internship opportunities for all students. Help the Career Center ensure all students can have valuable work experience before graduation by supplementing living expenses.


Market Intelligence Technology

The UCLA Career Center will use a gift of $500 to purchase a new analytics platform that will give students access to market intelligence specific to UCLA graduates.
