IMPORTANCE OF EARLY CAREER PLANNING:
We believe that prevention is the cheapest form of
intervention. The earlier your student sees us, the better. They will make more
informed decisions about choosing a major; leading to a lesser chance of
changing majors throughout their time at CU Denver, and a better chance of
graduating on time and finding a job after graduation.
career resources are usually available to students as first year students, most
students fail to utilize campus career resources until after their sophomore
year. As a result, many students choose their major without considering the
career implications, fail to take advantage of resume-building opportunities in
their first two-years of study, and scramble to find a jobduring their final semester of college.
