Employers

Thank you for your interest in actively engaging our DU students around recruitment. We understand that navigating the complexities of a university system to achieve your specific talent goals can be difficult. Our goal is to help you craft the most efficient and effective way to find the exact talent you need for the future of your business.

Our Employer Connections team can help to build your recruitment brand on campus by leveraging deep knowledge of our student populations, relationships with faculty and staff, and our Global Networks model. It is our job to build relationships across the DU campus community so external partners can maximize their time and resources when engaging with us. The information provided by our team will help you deeply engage our student population by providing both the breadth (larger recruitment events and campus-wide marketing) and depth (smaller, more intimate, experiential learning opportunities) of what our campus has to offer.

We are excited to provide you any information you might need to accomplish your goals. Please feel free to email all general questions to our team at hire@du.edu for the most rapid response. For more specific questions about getting involved with a more certain student population, feel free to reach out to the appropriate team member listed below.

To help expedite your future requests, please take the first step in our process by creating a profile in Pioneer Careers Online – PCO, our online internship, job and event board.
