Alumni Career & Professional Development at DU offers resume and LinkedIn profile reviews and drop-in Quick Questions hours along with a robust programming schedule. Alumni of the Daniels College of Business, the Sturm College of Law and graduate alumni from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies also receive lifetime career services from their career services offices. Alums who graduated with a degree within the last year continue to receive services from the same coaches they used as students and can schedule appointments via PCO.
Even with these services, some DU alumni need career, leadership, executive and other coaching that delves more in-depth or focuses on areas outside our staff’s expertise. Coaches can help discern what career path will lead to success, provide a framework and support for career goals, or assist in honing specific skills.
Vetted coaches are listed alphabetically and by their primary area of expertise. Career coaches generally focus on job search and transition while leadership and executive coaches provide expertise in how to develop and hone the skills needed to advance or manage others. Many of the coaches can work in both areas; check out their interests and specialty sections for more information. Rates vary and all coaches have agreed to offer a discount to University of Denver alumni, typically 20% off their regular rates. Please check out this highly qualified group of coaches. When you reach out, be sure to tell them you are a DU alumnus.
Questions to ask potential coaches in order to make sure they are a good fit for your needs and style are:
- How would you describe your coaching philosophy and style?
- What should I expect from our work together?
- What type of individuals do you work best with?
- How do you define success?
- Can you share some of your success stories?
- What do you charge for the service(s) I seek?
