Career Counselor Meeting With Student to Discuss ResumeYou may find it surprising, but Career Services does way more than help with your resume. In fact, we offer a wide range of services to help students discover professional development opportunities through CU Boulder and beyond. So, why should you pay us a visit? Here are six not-so-obvious reasons:

Our staff has valuable industry-specific knowledge.

Career development advisors are equipped to give you insight into exploring the world of work. There are eight primary interest areas identified, including Business and Finance, Creative and Communication, Engineering and Technology, Environment and Sciences, Health, Law, Social Impact and Public Service, and Still Exploring (for students who are still deciding). No matter where you are in your career discovery process, we have programming in each area to help you along the way.

Our Career Services calendar is loaded with events for your professional development.

Buff Talks, TechUps, resume workshops, networking events, Industry Nights and Career Fairs: we have put together an extensive event calendar for your career development. Each event is tailored to bring you closer to securing your dream job or internship. Check out our list of events for the rest of the school year by logging in to Handshake.

Speaking of Handshake, the job and internship listings are legit and numerous!

The Handshake job/internship and events board is chock-full of thousands of pre-screened internship and job opportunities and is updated on a daily basis. By completing your Career Buffs account, you will have access to employer profiles, job, internship, and volunteer listings and so much more. You can also upload your résumé for easy application submission.

Get help to discover the perfect career path.

Not only can a career development advisor help with your career exploration, we can also help with interview preparation, uncovering job leads and crafting the perfect resume. We are trained to assist students in matching your inner strengths, personality, and interests with a chosen profession. If you are thinking of graduate school or professional schools, such as law or medicine, career development advisors can help with that process as well.

Career Services works closely with employers who hire CU Boulder students.

We are well informed of employment trends, mostly because we’re talking with employers often. “Careers” are our career, and we are here to pass some of this vital information on to you.

It is never too early to prepare yourself for jobs after college.

Career Services is here for you throughout your entire college career, not just your senior year. Start your career development process early. With career development advisors, industry-specific events and job resources, the Career Services team is here to get you ready for life after CU Boulder.
