Alumni

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.

Career Coach Referral Program

 

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, executive, leadership 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 affiliation to the university: DU alumni coaches and those who are friends of DU. 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.
