Learn about Career Communities

We don’t assign you a career advisor based on your major. Instead, you have the opportunity to join one or more career communities based on your interests. Each career community offers access to an expert advisor, a student Career Ambassador eager to share their experiences and insights, curated opportunities, events, resources, and more!

Complete this short quiz to help identify which career communities you might wish to explore further.

We'll also send you a laptop sticker (supplies are limited!) to show your DePaul pride just for completing the quiz!

Enroll in a 2 Credit Career Course

While registering for classes, consider adding one of our 2 credit career courses. These classes focus on helping you explore and prepare for the next step in your journey - and, at 2 credits each, they typically fit nicely into your tuition package. Ask your academic advisor about adding one of the following:

Build a foundation for your career by discovering your values, interests, personality, and skills all while exploring careers and majors of interests.

Create your career communications suite and set yourself up for success in networking, applying for jobs, and acing interviews.

Identify your talents and learn to build those into strengths you can leverage for career success.

Learn the skills to be strategic in your job/internship search process from organization research to best practices in negotiating offers.
