Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Colleagues:
CareerHub is a central location where UCLA graduate students and postdocs can find upcoming professional and career development events, resources, and opportunities across the campus. We encourage you to bookmark or subscribe to CareerHub to stay informed about upcoming opportunities.

The EnCorps STEM Teaching Fellowship – alternative pathway to (paid) teaching or volunteer tutoring
The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program Fellowship (www.encorps.org) is a way for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals to explore if teaching at the middle or high school level might be a potential career pathway. Choose from two programs: transition to teaching or volunteer tutoring. Currently there is a severe shortage of high-quality teachers and enduring gaps in STEM access for high-need students and communities. EnCorps transitions STEM professionals into teaching with opportunities to tutor or guest teach, professional development and training, scholarships for obtaining a teaching credential, and access to our network of schools. Find out more by joining one of our monthly free EnCorps 101 webinars at http://encorps.org/webinar/.
The O*NET program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information, containing information on hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors. The database provides the basis for the Career Exploration Tools, a set of assessment instruments for workers and students looking to find or change careers.
