Career Advising

It is never too early to begin to utilize the services provided by the DePaul Career Center. These services are designed to assist in preparing for your future career and all students are strongly encouraged to participate in the opportunities available. Included here are some of the resources available to you.

One-On-One Career Advising Sessions

The DePaul Career Center offers industry specific advising for each of our 6 different career communities. Technology & Design, Media, Communication, Arts & Entertainment, Health Care & Science, Education, Nonprofit & Government, Business, Entrepreneurship & Consulting, and Exploration. Career Advisors are available in both the Loop Career Center (DePaul Center, 1 E. Jackson, Ste 9500) and Lincoln Park Career Center (SAC, 2320 N. Kenmore, Room 192). Set up an appointment via Handshake. Drop-in advising (i.e. no appointment necessary) is also available throughout the week (see individual career community pages for details).

CDM Advising and the Career Center have collaborated to bring Technology & Design career advising to CDM every Thursday 2-4pm (CDM building, 1st floor tutoring center). Schedule appointments through BlueStar to receive guidance on:

  • Job & Internship search strategies
  • Resume critiques
  • Interview practice and networking skills
  • Job titles and salaries
  • Portfolio reviews

If you wish to meet with a Career Advisor in regards to opportunities and career advice within the Film and Television industry, we recommend scheduling an appointment with the Media, Communication, Arts & Entertainment advisor via Handshake.
