Career Support

A DU education is built around rich intellectual learning and professional development. We serve the second part of that commitment through our six Career Services units on campus.

As a Pioneer, you'll have access to hundreds of internship opportunities and a dedicated support staff who can help you develop work experience before you graduate. You'll be a step ahead of the competition when you're ready to start your career. Many internships provide college credit, so you can advance your degree while you build your career.

You'll also find career assistance specific to your major and career interests. Our schools and colleges provide advising catered to your passions, so once you've chosen a field that inspires you, we'll help you find a career to match.
