Our team offers support for alumni in all phases of their professional lives. Check out all of our service offerings and resources below.

Alumni who graduated within the last year from a graduate or undergraduate program still have full access to the suite of services offered by their respective career services offices. Access those services exactly as you did as a student.

If you graduated from the Sturm College of Law, the Daniels College of Business, or earned a graduate degree from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, you receive lifetime services from the career center in that school.

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.

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.

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?

We have articles and resource links for alumni of diverse identities. If you’d like to join an alumni affinity group, you can learn more by visiting the Alumni of ACTION network.
