Training & Career Development

​​On–campus employment is the first step in your career path and may serve as a great foundation for later employment. The university provides opportunities, both on-the-job and beyond, to sharpen your skills, learn new tools, and contribute to your professional development.

New Student Employee Orientation

All new student employees are required to complete the New Student Employee Orientation module on BlueSky when first hired.

This required training module is designed to set you up for success as you begin your on-campus employment at DePaul. You are automatically enrolled in the course when hired into your first campus job and must be complete it within the first two weeks of employment.

The New Student Employee Orientation covers:

  • Essential Student Employment Policies
  • Accessing Timecards and Direct Deposit
  • Professional Expectations
  • Career Development

Exploring these topics will ensure you have the information you need to successfully start your on-campus employment at DePaul.

Ladder of Employment

The Ladder of Employment framework was designed to give you the opportunity to gain progressively more challenging positions while on campus, allowing you to build your skills and gain experience. As you search for roles, following the Ladder is a great way to identify positions that can help you build your resume.

Many C and D level positions qualify as internships that may be used for academic credit. Enroll in a Career & Lif​e Design (CLD) course to fulfill your Experiential Learning requirement as you work on campus. CLD’s 4-credit courses are designed to provide career–related work experiences concurrent with your academic studies.
