Career Communities

What is a career community?

Career communities are spaces for students who are interested in similar fields to gather and take advantage of career-specific opportunities, tools, and resources. Career coaches with special insight and training lead each community.

When you join a career community you’ll receive personalized information based on your interests and goals, like industry-specific news and information, career-focused spotlights, internship and job postings, skill-building opportunities, and more.

Denison Career Communities are formed around broad themes, such as arts, finance, and healthcare. They often overlap majors, industries, and job functions, which means the knowledge and skills you develop are transferrable to many career paths.

You are encouraged to join in one - or more - communities. Often career communities cover career paths that aren’t indicated in their name. Talk to your career counselor about your interests and they will advise you on the best community to join.

Denison’s seven career communities
