With approximately three thousand undergraduate humanities majors and minors each year, the Division of Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles is making it a top priority to help its highly qualified graduates find placement with employers with whom they can envision themselves building careers. The UCLA Humanities Career Panel Series (HCPS) aims to help UCLA students translate their knowledge into successful careers. Designed specifically for students majoring and minoring in the Humanities, but open to all students, the UCLA HCPS provides students with the necessary tools to be competitive in today’s job market, and gives them the opportunity to connect in-person with employers and people in their target career fields such as business, education, technology, law, government, and non-profit.
Each academic year the series will host a number of workshops, panels, discussions, and networking events during which time students can meet employers in a casual setting. Students will learn how to market their (analytical, writing, problem solving, and foreign language) skills learned in their UCLA Humanities courses to employers and will learn about types of careers they can find in various industries.
