1st Year

Welcome to the University of Denver, we are excited to have you join our DU community! Career & Professional Development is here to help you with all aspects of your career journey whether you are looking for your first campus job or wanting to get started on an action plan for your post-graduation goals.

  • Complete Career Achievement Milestone 1 by getting your resume updated for college and reviewed by a career staff member.
  • Schedule an appointment with your career advisor on PCO or by calling 303.871.2150. Whether you are undeclared or have clear professional goals in mind, a meeting with your career advisor can ensure you are taking the steps necessary for professional success.

Your first-year at DU is an exciting time to meet new people and explore your interests. Joining a student organization can be a great way to meet people, explore passions, and build leadership skills. To learn more about student organization involvement visit Crimson Connect.
