Whether you are undecided and first choosing a major, contemplating changing your major, or wondering what you can do with your major career-wise – the Career Center can help!1
Figuring out your career identity can be a challenging task. Self-discovery can often be difficult because we tend to resist it by doubting our potential and not acknowledging our talents. The Career Center encourages you to take as much time as needed in figuring out “who you are” to better figure out what the best career fit may be.2
Pursuing an advanced degree is a commitment in terms of time, money, and hard work. The Career Center can help you to decide if graduate school meets your career goals and to then determine how to get there. We have resources on different graduate programs that can assist you in making your decisions and establishing your timelines.3
The CU Denver Career Center staff is here to help identify effective strategies for your job search. We have resources available for first year students through alumni that will empower you to take control of your part-time and full-time job search. Meeting with a career counselor will help you to learn what are the most effective and ineffective approaches to job searching.4
Practice your interviewing skills in a one-on-one situation with a counselor. The mock interview can be tailored to focus on a specific job, graduate school admission, or general interviewing skills.5
Resumes and cover letters are a critical component of any job or internship search. From the basics of writing your first resume or cover letter, to tailoring them to a specific job, we have the people and the resources to get your documents in top shape.6
Networking is consistently one of the most effective ways to explore careers and job opportunities. It is estimated that somewhere between 65%-85% of all positions are filled through some form of networking. We’re here to help you tap into the “hidden job market.”
