As a child, Kate’s family repeatedly told her she should be an attorney due to her exceptional ability to argue. At first, the length of schooling required turned her off, but thanks to her incredible professors and experience in DU’s paralegal program, Kate graduated in 2012 and went on to pursue her law degree. Now, she is working as an Associate Attorney with Kreis, Enderle, Hudgins & Borsos, P.C, specializing in corporate & business law and estate planning & probate.

Are you aware of the DU Employment Guarantee?
The Employment Guarantee provides additional semesters of education for graduates who have met all requirements but are unable to find employment within six months of graduation. Since it launched with the Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in August 2014, about 100 students have graduated with eligibility for the guarantee, but all have either gained employment, were already employed, or are currently enrolled in a graduate program.
The Guarantee is available for all students seeking a Bachelor of Science in Nursing/Pre-licensure Program, Bachelor of Science in Network Management and Security, and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting.
Are you starting your career job search or looking for a job while in school?
