Career Peer Advisor
In my role as a Peer Advisor, I work with DU students to support them in their career goals and build their resumés and cover letters. I also provide guidance to students on campus through sharing resources and information pertaining to professional development at the University of Denver and outside.
During my time at DU, I have utilized Career and Professional Developments’ resources and taken all I have learned and used it to further my own personal and professional development. Career and Professional Development offers a unique and diverse range of resources that grant opportunities to those at the University of Denver and beyond.
In my free time, I enjoy camping and fishing, as well as playing sports and spending time with friends and family.
Career Peer Advisor
Hi! I am Nicholas Brees (He/Him) and I am working in the Burwell Center for Career Achievement as a Peer Career Advisor. I am really looking forward to helping the community that is my peers with some of the same topics I was struggling with not even a year ago. As a Peer Advisor, I am available for drop in appointments for help with resumes, cover letters, or any of the fun work that is applying for jobs/internships.
I was born in San Jose, California but moved out to Bend, Oregon during the formative years of my life. Out there, I found a new passion for the outdoors while climbing mountains, spelunking in lava caves, and swimming in any body of water I can find. Two of my most memorable adventures would be a three hour rafting trip along the Rogue River while a firefighting helicopter was refilling their tank fifty yards away from our raft while we were navigating class three rapids, and hiking/backpacking in the Owyhee River Wilderness Area, one of the most untapped and Edenic places in the Pacific North West.
I came to DU for the amazing Daniels School of Business programs as well as the mountains and nature. I hope to learn how to ski this year and take more advantage of the Colorado Mountains. I hope to see you all in the Burwell Center at some point this year!
