Transition Services Program


The Transition Services Program is provided by Human Resources-Employment Services. It has been developed to support UC Berkeley employees who are being separated as a result of our current budget situation and other circumstances. Affected employees may need to expand their job search beyond the university community, and the Transition Services Program can assist in facilitating a terminated employee’s search for a new job.


Services offered include career coaching and workshops designed to address: managing transition, transferable skills, assessment, and developing an action plan. In particular, these services are tailored to assist the employee transitioning out of the university environment. Networking opportunities and placement leads are also available through this program.

Program Outcomes

Statistically, employees who work with supportive programs while in this process find new employment faster than those who choose to try it on their own. Employees are encouraged to participate in the whole array of program services to optimize their career transition.

While outplacement activities can vary from one organization to another, essential services include assistance through career guidance, resume writing, interview preparation and job search strategies.
