Getting Started with CDO Online Resources

Accessing Password-Protected Web Pages

Many of the more useful Web pages (such as CDO publications, Lexis, and Westlaw login information) available on our website are password protected by the Calnet system. For access to most password-protected areas of the Career Development Office website, when prompted by the phrase "This portion of the website requires authentication," click on "login with your Alternate ID." Then enter the CDO alumni user name and password. If you do not have our alumni user name and password, please send an email to

Note: This user name and password only works for Calnet authentication. If the page you are on does not say Calnet on it, you must use a different password. When accessing a resource such as the b-Line, a user-specific identifier is required.  If you do not remember a previously assigned b-Line password or have never received one, and would like to do so, please send an email to

b-Line (Berkeley Law Careers Online)

Access: The b-Line does not require Calnet authentication, but you do need your own unique username and password to access the system. If this is your first time accessing the b-Line system, please send an email to to request access. Be sure to include your full name (please take any name changes into account!) and class year for verification. If you have forgotten your password, you can request a new one from the login page automatically.

With the b-Line, you can take advantage of a variety of online services, including creating an online profile, uploading your resume, searching the job database and reviewing employer profiles.  Note, however, that access to on-campus interview programs applies only to current students. So if you click on the OCI tab, the phrase "no record" will be all that you see.

One valuable feature of b-Line, if you are job-hunting with limited time available, is that you can set up searches of the job database to run automatically at selected intervals and automatically have opportunities that meet your search criteria emailed to you. We hope you will find the b-Line an efficient and easy resource to use for your job search needs. If, as you navigate the website, you find that you have difficulties or questions, please contact us in the Career Development Office at or at 510-642-4567.
