Ahh yes, summer is over. Thousands of students are back in the hills of Westwood, complete with study-abroad tans, empty bank accounts, and a pep in their step that’ll disappear by Week 5. Of course, that means Campus Events Commission is back in session bringing you the coolest weekly events to campus, starting with Bruin Bash on 9/25.
But we need YOUR help (maybe you, we’ll see). The coolest/smartest/sexiest organization on campus is looking for our newest staff members.
The following staffs are hiring:
- Online Marketing
- Public Relations
- Films and Festivals
- Media Production
- Web Development
Applications are due WEDNESDAY 10/4 by 5pm in the CEC office (Kerckhoff 319). Feel free to come in and meet the staff! We encourage you to submit your application as soon as you finish it. If we’re not there, slide it under the door. Click the link(s) below for the application. Typing your application is preferred (for the sake of our vision).

Online Marketing Staff
The Online Marketing department controls all the behind-the-scenes work and acts as the backbone of CEC. We handle reservations, run the website, and manage virtually everything online. CEC’s presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and every other social media site out there falls under our authority. Do you live on your phone? Good, cause that’s exactly what we’re looking for.
Public Relations Staff
The Public Relations staff is the promotional hand of Campus Events Commission, in charge of promoting and informing students of any and all CEC programs. Acting much like a big bad PR and marketing machine, it is responsible for press releases as well as inter-organization and media relations. The Public Relations staff also works to foster the CEC image and name as a vibrant source of college entertainment.
Films and Festivals Staff
CEC has one of the largest screening programs in the country. The Films staff organizes free weekly films open to the public and our free sneaks frequently bring UCLA students movies before they hit theatres! In the past few years we’ve had Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, The Martian, Hail Caesar!, and plenty more. We have occasional guests and speakers for the films such as Anna Kendrick, Adam Devine, Jason Bateman and Wes Anderson. Films and Festivals is also responsible for major film festivals (think Cannes or Sundance) for UCLA students – like Campus MovieFest (CMF) and ShortTakes.
The Print Marketing staff works alongside all Marketing and Programming staffs to get the word out about every CEC event. They design all of the eye-catching, creative marketing assets for both print and digital needs – including (but not limited to) posters, flyers, and graphics for on-campus advertising and social media platforms. Like capitalism, without advertising Campus Events would crumble.
Concerts staff books bands and artists to perform at Bruin/Westwood Plaza, Ackerman Grand Ballroom, and Kerckhoff Grand Salon. Concerts in Bruin Plaza usually take place at noon, but if you’ve got class you can always catch one of the evening shows. Past artists who have graced our stages include Snakehips, YG, Local Natives, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and most recently, Ty Dolla $ign. In order to bring you such worthy talent, the staff must keep up to date with relevant artists and negotiate with managers and agents, so show some appreciation and they’ll do the rest!
Since its inception in the 1960s, the Speakers program has hosted notable famous people from all walks of life. The Speakers program is one of the most distinguished in the country and continues to bring all sorts of interesting, funny, and otherwise entertaining folks to campus. In the past few years we’ve hosted Lil B, Jon Favreau, Pharrell Williams, and many others! So keep your eyes peeled for the excitement coming your way this year.
Media Production Staff
The Media Production staff collaborates with the three other marketing staffs of CEC to promote upcoming events through clever videos and other marketing campaigns. They act as the media presence of CEC, combining event coverage and video production. You can see them photographing and filming live events, just like the paparazzi but cooler.
Web Development Staff
The Web Development staff works on bringing to life every web page that proudly bears the CEC logo. From the Bruin Bash site to the EAF website to the main website itself, our web developers breathe life into code and make sure everything runs smoothly. If you’ve got a knack for coding and are interested in Android and iOS app development or website creation, then this is the staff to turn to.
Make sure to turn in a printed copy of your application(s) to the CEC office (Kerckhoff 319) by WEDNESDAY 10/4 by 5pm. NO EXCEPTIONS.
*And please note that, during the hiring process you may apply to as many staffs as you’d like, and you may get interviews to more than one staff. But if you are selected, you will only be selected for one staff.
