The WesternU alumni network is more than 10,000 people strong, and alumni and students can take advantage of this network for professional advice and job placement. Your fellow classmates and friends of the University understand the high value of a WesternU degree, and they have posted jobs on the sites below specifically to recruit WesternU graduates like you.
WesternU Alumni Job Board
Alumni and students (non-veterinary) interested in viewing employment opportunities, or an employer wishing to hire WesternU alumni, can register on our self-service, online job board at http://webpost.westernu.edu. All registrants will be required to first create a profile, username, and password. Once your registration has been approved, you may then begin utilizing the system to post or search for health care jobs. Only WesternU alumni and students may register as a “job seeker,” but anyone may register as an “employer” to post job opportunities for our graduates. There is no fee to use this site.
Veterinary Career Center
The Veterinary Career Center at http://cvmjobs.westernu.edu is a “one stop shop” for alumni and students of the WesternU College of Veterinary Medicine interested in employment opportunities, or an employer wishing to hire a veterinarian. The VCC is part of a Veterinary Career Network that provides access to the best, high-profile and even niche openings from the industry’s leading institutions and practices. All services to “Job Seekers” are provided for free, but some “Employer” services may require a fee.
WesternU Connect is a secure, private web platform that was designed to allow WesternU students and alumni to connect with one another for the purposes of professional networking (e.g., a COMP student could search for and contact COMP alumni specializing in dermatology and radiology to help decide which specialty to pursue). In addition to this Directory feature, the platform has several pages and features including Campus News, Upcoming Events, Photo Albums, and more! Signing in to WesternU Connect takes just one minute in three easy steps…
- Go to http://westernuconnect.com/ and register using your 1) LinkedIn account, 2) Facebook account, or 3) email address, in that preferred order, as it will safely and securely pull your relevant information (employment, education, photo) into the platform to make the registration process fast and easy. Nothing from WesternU Connect will ever be shared or posted to your LinkedIn or Facebook profiles without your explicit permission.
- On the “Basic info” page, select your WesternU degree, grad year, and primary specialty; as well as enter your company name and job title.
- On the “Give back” page, check or uncheck the boxes to indicate how you would like to volunteer, such as by sharing your career advice and expertise with current students and other alumni.
LinkedIn University: LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network, which can enable you to connect with friends, classmates, colleagues and clients. By creating a profile on LinkedIn and including “Western University of Health Sciences” in the education section of your profile, you will automatically be included on WesternU’s LinkedIn University page (www.linkedin.com/edu/school?id=17981). Through this page, current WesternU students and your fellow alumni will be able to contact you for career advice and professional networking; and you can use the network to contact them too. Here’s how: Click on “Where alumni work” or “What alumni do” to open up a list of nearly 3,500 WesternU alumni and students on LinkedIn. In the “Search this set” box near the top of that page, enter a specific name or one or more keywords, such as degree (“DVM”), location (“San Diego”), and/or specialty (“dermatology”) to narrow the search results.
