Bruin Edge
When should I start looking for an internship or job?
It’s never too early. Some industries hire during Fall Quarter for summer internships while others hire during Winter and Spring Quarter. Get started now by researching your industry's application timeline, preparing your resume and connecting with alumni on UCLA ONE and LinkedIn. Taking these steps early on will benefit you in the long-run.

Professional Tip
According to recent research, 85% of all jobs are filled via networking. That means most students don't land a job just by submitting their application.

Successful job-seekers identify mutual connections at companies they're interested in and reach out to those connections before applying. Use UCLA ONE and LinkedIn to identify alumni in your intended industry. Simply being a Bruin is enough to give you an edge.
