The Career Center

The Career Center is committed to helping DePaul students develop the workplace skills and meaningful connections vital to succeed in today’s job market. Faculty are important partners in fulfilling this commitment; we work together to ensure our students understand how their academic experiences and choices align with major and career decisions and leave DePaul well-equipped for their post-graduate pursuits.

The Career Center is also a faculty resource. Please refer students our way for assistance and feel free to contact us for industry-, job- and internship-related information and support.
