Why Recruit at CU-Boulder?
With the number of college graduates rising every year, employers must be strategic in selecting where
to recruit. The University of Colorado at Boulder is on the short list of schools targeted by many elite
companies because access to students through Career Services is user-friendly and the internship and
full-time hires from CU have been successful within their organizations. The academic and leadership
credentials of our students, the caliber of our nationally-celebrated faculty, the uniqueness of our
academic offerings, and the variety of extracurricular education available to our students come together
to provide a unique and spectacular university.

As you can see (from above), it does not take much to convince people that CU-Boulder is one of
the highest quality universities, public or private, in the country. For more awards and accolades, please
