6-8pm, UCLA Career Center, Second and Third Floors

Did you know that there are thousands of people employed in government and nonprofit organizations with great benefits and opportunities to make positive differences for people?  Were you aware that over 20 million people work for these federal, state, or local agencies and departments and help to support projects like the protection of wilderness areas, the Space program, public health, firefighting services, and long-term health care facilities for the aging?

Have you thought about a career in the nonprofit sector? Their funding comes from places such as government grants, foundations, and membership dues, but what attracts people the most to these careers is one thing: The chance to make a positive difference in the world.

In one evening, we will bring these groups together for you in one place, here at the UCLA Career Center.

This is a great opportunity to learn about internships and employment targeted specifically to UCLA Bruins.  And it's your chance to meet and network with recruiters who are looking to recruit UCLA students. All majors and all class levels are welcome to attend!

We encourage you to research the attending organizations and opportunities  by checking this  web page. Come prepared! First impressions do count.

Business Casual attire is preferred.
