Getting a college education is a good investment in the future. Statistics show that those who earn their degree can expect higher lifetime earnings—from nearly twice to nearly four times as much—as those who don’t. Nonetheless, landing a great job can be a challenge. In a competitive hiring environment, DePaul graduates have an edge. They have a strong reputation among employers for practical preparedness for the workplace, drive for excellence and consistent, high-quality work. They have one more advantage as well—a large network of alumni employers who recognize the value of a DePaul education and actively seek DePaul graduates and interns to join their workforce.
