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!
