Career Achievement Milestones

The Career Achievement milestones are you guideposts to professional success during your time at DU!

Taking time to work on your professional goals throughout your academic career, rather than waiting until graduation, will ensure that you are well prepared for achieving your post-graduation goals. Research shows that students that engage with career development during their time in college have better jobs and salaries at graduation than their peers that did not engage with career development as a student.

Undergraduate students – complete a minimum of one milestone during each year of your student experience.
Graduate students – pace these milestones evenly throughout your degree program.
