Undergraduate Students

As an undergraduate student, we encourage you to engage in career development throughout your time at DU starting in your first year. Research shows that students that engage with career development during their time in college have better jobs and salaries at graduation than their less engaged peers. Securing internships and relevant experiences also makes a big impact on graduation outcomes! Start early to be ready to achieve your post-graduation goals.

The Career Achievement Milestones are a great place to start in your career preparation journey. Undergraduate students are expected to complete a minimum of one milestone during each year of your student experience.
