UC has launched a new website to help military veterans transition to the civilian workforce, access the university’s jobs board, and learn about campus career and networking events.

The university counts numerous veterans among its diverse workforce, and UC enrolls more than 2,000 veteran and military status students. As part of its commitment to serve those who have served, campuses offer a variety of resources, from priority class registration to peer mentoring to veterans clubs where veterans and their families can connect.

The new website serves as a one-stop shop where veterans can easily access UC’s systemwide jobs search website and learn about the university’s salaries and benefits, professional development programs, and upcoming career and networking events.

In addition, the website provides tips on resume writing, networking and interviewing, and corrals other non-UC resources that offer career guidance.

“Military veterans have unique skills and experiences that can serve them well in the civilian workforce, and there are countless opportunities they can pursue at UC,” said Vice President Dwaine B. Duckett of systemwide Human Resources. “This is one of many first and foundational steps in ensuring we are sourcing talent from this key constituency — veterans — in our community.”

The website grew out of a series of recommendations from the systemwide UC Veterans Workgroup, which formed in 2015 to improve the experience of veterans working as academic appointees and staff at the university. The workgroup includes veteran employees and Human Resources staff.
