Jump-Start Your Career with UCLA ONE

UCLA ONE provides Opportunity, Networking and Experience to Bruins no matter where they are in their careers or where they want to go.

For young Bruins looking to begin their careers, UCLA ONE offers a running start. In a tough professional world, the online platform lets young alumni easily search for internship opportunities or request an informational interview. If you want to know more about a specific industry but can’t commit to an internship, reach out to helpful alumni and get inside information over a quick cup of coffee. Recent graduates can use the job search engine for entry-level positions that are perfectly suited to their area of study, skill set and experience level. UCLA ONE is available to students, as well.

The online platform is equally beneficial for mid-career professionals. If you are a Bruin who loves what you do but wants to take your career to the next level, UCLA ONE is a great place to find jobs where you already have a strong Bruin connection. Careers at Google, Facebook, the Los Angeles Sparks and public service have all been featured on UCLA ONE and posted by other alumni. The platform also hosts industry-based group gatherings where professional Bruins can ask for advice, discuss career strategies or network with other alumni. Groups include the UCLA Boston Alumni Group, the UCLA Spirit Squad and the Residential Life Alumni Mentor Program.

Since engagement is at the heart of the Alumni Association, UCLA ONE brings alumni together for professional and career mentorship. Bruins looking for career guidance can search the online directory for mentors by position, industry and more. Not close to Westwood? No problem. Bruin mentors are located all around the world and want to help you progress to the next phase of your career. UCLA ONE even allows alumni interested in entrepreneurial mentorship to connect with Bruin Owned Businesses. Contact an alumni entrepreneur to learn what it takes to create your own successful Bruin Owned Business.

Alumni Association board members and co-chairs of the Career Advisory Committee Eve Glatt ’92 and Derek Hu ’92 agree: “If we all connect on UCLA ONE, we can help each other grow while developing our own careers. It also lets us give back to the university as we engage through our interests, careers and Bruin spirit.”

Additionally, experienced alumni who want to give back to the Bruin community can use UCLA ONE to lend a hand to others. By using the “Willing to Help” function on the online profile, accomplished professional alumni can create connections, open doors to their companies, answer career questions and be mentors. Your profile is completely customizable and lets you curate your UCLA ONE experience. You can choose between different levels of engagement and commitment, as well as mentoring groups and industry fields. Want to help boost a Bruin career? Log on to UCLA ONE and start sharing your expertise with your Bruin family.
