Career Planning

My education at CU Denver contributed tremendously to my current success at the Sherwin-Williams company. I felt like the university strove to push each and every one of us to maximize our full potential. There were so many resources provided for me, including the job fairs where I found my current career.”

There is a lot of competition for teachers, especially here in Denver, but CU Denver prepares its teachers more than other universities. CU Denver has given me the opportunity to jump in headfirst and to experience the career of my dreams firsthand.”

Learn with purpose and launch a career

In a competitive job market, candidates need to be at their best. The city is our classroom and CU Denver Career Center can help you.

As soon as you enroll at CU in the city, we can assist you in  finding an on-campus job. Career Center counselors can also help you choose major areas of study, write resumes, prepare to be interviewed, look for full- and part-time positions, meet employers and network with professional mentors.

Thinking about graduate school?

Thinking about postponing the job search in favor of graduate school? We can help you decide whether your career requires a graduate degree. Can’t decide on the best career for you? We offer career counseling to help you find your professional strengths. Still not sure what you want to do with your degree? Attend one of our job fairs to check out the many options available to our graduates.

Helping you pursue your goals

Our counselors meet with students to offer personalized attention and support as they pursue ambitious and enterprising goals. When they succeed, we celebrate with them. We partner and network with influential alumni who are often ready to open doors to new graduates seeking jobs. Approximately 3,500 companies post positions for students to our digital listing, called Handshake​, where students can review more than 3,000 job openings every year.

At CU Denver, we understand the purpose of an education—and we help our graduates turn their passions into professions.
