How does a DePaul education translate to a successful career?
There's no one way to have a successful career — but there's lots to consider along the way. Here's what our students recommend you take advantage of during your time at DePaul.
"It's never too early to get involved and take on leadership opportunities."
Keep an open mind
during class trips, service initiatives and seminar courses. Your intended major may change.
Connect with your professors
They have years of experience and are key to finding internships and jobs.
There are opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students at DePaul.
Network, network, network
Your classmates could become your colleagues. Networking with everyone is critical.
"Working part time allows me to get the experience that a lot of companies are looking for when I'm out of school."
Build your portfolio
through class projects that require case studies and pro bono work for real companies or nonprofits.
Learn from decision-makers
CEOs, CTOs and founders will come into your classroom to share their knowledge with you. Don't be afraid to talk to them.
Don't let December Intercession go to waste
Find a six-week internship or part-time position that could carry over into the academic year.
"During my four years, I wasn't trapped on a campus. I was on the train traveling to different neighborhoods seeing aspects of our world."
Build a profile on Handshake
to have internships and jobs delivered in your newsfeed. You'll be glad you did.
Learn about global communities and how to navigate cultural and communication differences.
Take advantage of our quarter system
