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 experiential learning opportunities also makes a big impact on graduation outcomes!

The Career Milestones will help you achieve your professional goals and are a good place to start. Engage with your career journey at any point. Undergraduates should try to complete at least one milestones per year. Work with your assigned Career Advisor to achieve your milestones. Log into PCO today to schedule an appointment to get started.
