Your major does not have to equal your career. This is why the DePaul Career Center transformed the career services and advising model this year.
Career Communities are your guide for exploring interests and skills, making connections, discovering and designing career pathways, and launching your career. You must opt in to a community to start receiving the exclusive email alerts, targeted job & internship postings, tailored industry resources, career advising and more!
There are six communities to choose from and you can select more than one! Regardless of your chosen major, you can explore any Career Community and attend events across all industries. Doing so will help you develop a great network for future opportunities and learn about a variety of career paths.
This community is focused on connecting values, interests, and skills to career exploration.
This community is a good fit if you’re just beginning to think about careers, reconsidering your intended career, considering a career change or pivot, or interested in self-assessments and reflection.
