Alumni Job Search Tools

The Office maintains a full service career resource library to assist alumni with their career development. The library contains an array of written materials on all aspects of the job search and is comprised of numerous types of resources, including directories, reference books, periodicals, informational guides, employer files, and job listing binders. The Office also keeps a collection of audio and video tapes of its programs. Information is available to students on a variety of topics including: law firm, corporate, government, and public interest practice settings; practice specialties; judicial clerkships; job search tools and strategies; international opportunities; and non-traditional career options.

In addition to the print materials in the library, the Office maintains comprehensive online career resources.  Available on the Office’s website are a number of informational guides, resources links, and networking events. In addition, the Office has created an extensive annotated bibliography for the students, which contains a list of useful resources that are available at other locations on the UCLA campus.
