The Rosenfeld Library partners with the Parker Career Management Center (PCMC) and the Professional MBA Programs Career Management Center, who along with the UCLA Career Center, have the primary responsibility for career planning and job search. Parker CMC provides research resources (including Vault and WetFeet) and appointments (Anderson student login required) with professional counselors. FEMBA and EMBA students have access to the ProMBA Career Management Center and their Career Tools.
Internet resources for career needs have been selected by the UCLA Career Center in their Job Search Websites. They also offer Academic Job Search Links and Non-Academic Job Search Links for graduate students. This Center has a library specialized in career research.
While the Rosenfeld Library acquires materials for curriculum use, some sources of company and industry information have career planning uses, as evident in this research strategy and the guides listed on the page: Career Management - Research Using the Rosenfeld Library. NOTE: Some online sources are covered by contracts limiting access to curriculum use by UCLA faculty and current UCLA students, and some further limited to UCLA Anderson use.
