The Job Ready Bucket List is a hands-on training program strengthening your professional toolkit.

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

UCLA wants you to feel ready and confident to meet the next adventure after graduation. 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.

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

Program Details:

Location: This program takes place entirely online, much like an online class.
Dates: The Job Ready Bucket List begins in Week 2 and continues through Week 7. 
Times: 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. 

All other logistical information will be provided once applicants have been selected into the program.

Application Deadline: Friday, April 7th at midnight. Selection will be on a rolling admissions basis. Apply now!
