Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

Veteran Self-Identification Campaign

LBNL has kicked off its veteran self-identification campaign, aimed at helping veterans properly self-identify and confirm veteran status so the Lab can recognize the importance of its veteran workforce, accurately track progress in increasing its veteran presence and help develop further veteran-friendly programs and policies.

As a token of appreciation, each self-identifying veteran will receive a unique Berkeley Lab challenge coin if they choose to do so at this year’s Veteran Appreciation Luncheon on November 8.

View the official LBNL Veteran Self-ID Campaign announcement to learn more and watch a video featuring Ray Turner, 21-year Navy veteran and current Division Deputy of Operations for the Joint Genome Institute.

Los Angeles

Career Fair, October 27

UCLA Health and UCLA recently hosted its second annual Veteran's Open House and Job fair, which was even more successful than the first! 48 participants attended and took advantage of this amazing opportunity to meet with representatives of campus and health system departments, speak with managers and in some cases, even apply for positions on the spot!

In addition to the in-person event, UCLA Health also held a 2-hour, online, virtual open house so candidates could speak directly with recruiters about opportunities across the health system, a huge benefit for those who find it difficult to drive to West LA or could not leave work to attend in person.
