Ready, Aim, Hire!

Employment news for veterans: Veterans battling for the right job

Ready, Aim, Hire!” is a three part series of events designed to assist student veterans in preparing to transition from student to career professional, utilizing both their military skills and academic successes. Student veterans also have the opportunity to engage with fellow student veterans and alumni, staff and faculty veterans to expand their social and professional network and create meaningful connections.

As graduating senior John Maldonado said “Of all the UCLA programs for vets this year, Ready, Aim, Hire! was the most important because while vets gain a wonderful education at UCLA, they’re still so often unable to translate their military experience into a civilian resume. Plus RAH exposes them to networking which is another gateway to meeting employers and making professional connections”.

Volunteer Spotlight:

With a diverse background in operations, training and management, 4th year global studies major John Wyman serves as the communications assistant for UCLA’s International Institute. He also volunteers with the Student Veterans of America-UCLA as the Vice President of External Affairs and is involved with the Ready, Aim, Hire! program through UCLA’s VetNet, an alumni and student organization connecting veteran students, alumni, staff and faculty both socially and professionally. In addition to pursuing his degree full time, John is part of the Air National Guard, following a 14 year career with the U.S. Air Force.
