UCLA Veterans

As part of Campus Human Resources ’ outreach efforts, partnerships have been established with veterans organizations to discuss employment opportunities for veterans at UCLA and university jobs are regularly advertised on websites developed specifically with veterans in mind. Campus Human Resources has also begun a pilot program called the UCLA Veterans Work Experience Program (VWEP). Paid for by the Veterans Administration, the program is designed to assist veterans with their transition to full time employment by providing them with valuable on-the-job experience as a volunteer at UCLA. Additionally, UCLA's Staff and Faculty Counseling Center (SFCC ) fosters a productive and supportive work environment for all employees. Services are free, voluntary, and confidential.

The more public and complete your profile is the more likely to be noticed by employers/recruiters, who use filters (geographical location and industry preference most often) to search for potential candidates.
