The University of California, Los Angeles will now provide individualized online career coaching to all of its alumni as well as all UCLA Extension students and alumni, thanks to a joint effort out of UCLA Extension, UCLA Alumni Affairs and the UCLA Career Center. The three divisions have partnered with InsideTrack to offer subscription access to the company’s uCoach student success coaching resources.

InsideTrack provides a range of personalized support, including one-on-one meetings with a professional career coach; templates and tools for creating a career search plan; live workshops on job skills; and video tutorials with job-search and career-development advice. Users can access the resources online through InsideTrack’s uCoach web and mobile platforms.

“UCLA alumni and Extension students expect access to first-rate professional development solutions. We are committed to providing our graduates and continuing education students with the support they need to thrive in fulfilling careers, and are excited to leverage the success of InsideTrack as a critical partner in helping us honor that commitment,” said Wayne Smutz, dean of UCLA Extension, Angela Scales, senior director of Bruin Connections at UCLA Alumni Affairs, and Wesley Thorne, director of the UCLA Career Center, in a joint statement.

UCLA will continue to provide traditional career services — such as career advising, programming and career fairs — through its Career Center.
