Job Ready Bucket List


UCLA wants you to feel ready and confident to meet the next adventure after graduation. The Job Ready Bucket List is a virtual training program dedicated to strengthening your professional toolkit, while guiding you to check off those to-do’s you’ve been meaning to get to.

Being “job ready” doesn’t mean you have to have a job. It means having the comfort and confidence to start the next phase, whether that’s a job, grad school, a year of service or whatever comes next for you.

The goal of the Job Ready Bucket List is to ready students to launch your career immediately upon commencement. Program participants graduate with a vetted resume, networking assistance, and tailored support for using your specific major to meet your personal and professional goals. You will also network with guests from an accomplished pool of alumni and friends who will share their experiences and professional advice.

This program is open to:

  • Students majoring or minoring in Anthropology, Sociology and Communication
  • Students who are interested in jobs, internships, fellowships, grad school, a gap year, and/or a year of service after graduation
  • This program is designed for seniors, but is open to dedicated students of all years

This program will take place entirely online, much like an online course, during weeks 2 through 7.

There are no class times, although members will be required to attend professional events of their own choosing. Assignments are due by Sundays at midnight. Your commitment to the program will ensure you get the most out of this opportunity.
