Bruin Edge

Your passion isn’t out there waiting for you to find it, and neither is that one perfect job. Whether you’re trying to pick your major or plan for life after UCLA, remember that passion is developed through experience and you’ll likely be passionate about many things over the course of your career.

Be open, explore your options and don’t be afraid to try something completely outside your major or the career field you always thought you’d pursue.

Events like
Major Blast are the perfect opportunity to practice a growth mindset.
