Growing your career at DePaul

​DePaul staff who are applying for a new position within the university compete with a broad pool of external talent. So it’s vital for internal candidates to treat an open position like a brand new opportunity and prepare as if you were starting from scratch with DePaul. To help you, DePaul’s Office of Human Resources offers the Staff Career Development Workshop.

Staff Career Development Workshop

This one-day program is designed for full-time and part-time staff at DePaul with knowledge, skills and coaching to empower participants to achieve their career goals at DePaul.

The session blends lecture and practice to help you to personalize career and job search strategies by:

  • Understanding how to leverage current career trends
  • Using your strengths and talents to identify the best careers and jobs for you
  • Perfecting your pitch so decision makers understand who you are and what you want
  • Writing resumes and cover letters that get noticed
  • Preparing to ace the interview
Because the sessions are fast paced with time to personalize the information to your needs, it will be important to complete approximately three hours of pre-work prior to the session. All of the pre-work is designed to help you achieve your career goals with tools that can be used continually.

Participants who complete the program are eligible for a one-on-one session with a member of DePaul’s Talent Acquisition Team.
