PCO is DU’s job and internship board for students and it’s a one stop shop for students career needs. Students will find student employment positions, internships, & full-time opportunities on the site. You can also make appointments with career advisors and register for career & professional development events.
Please note all resumes submitted through PCO will go through an automatic review process by the Career & Professional Development staff. While this may take extra time for you if revisions are needed, it’s to support you in submitting the most competitive application possible. A quality resume will help you now and in the future.
Please allow at least 3 days before the application deadline for this step. You will not be able to submit your full application until the resume has been reviewed and approved. Due to the expected volume of applications, do not wait until right before the deadline to apply as your resume could be delayed in the review process.
To be proactive, consider comparing your current resume to resume samples on our website. Make changes prior to submission. This will increase the likelihood your resume can be approved without going through major edits, allowing you to apply to student employment positions quickly. Reach out to Student Employment with any questions at stuemp@edu.
