Postgraduate employment is a vital concern of both students and faculty. Because the Graduate Tax Program is the only program of its kind in the Rocky Mountain Region and has an excellent national reputation, it is well situated to offer its students a variety of job opportunities in this region as well as across the U.S.
Each Big Four accounting firm and many other national, regional, and local firms interview applicants on campus each year, and the majority of students receive offers through this process. (National firms are represented by their national or regional partner in charge of recruiting tax personnel.) A significant number of local firms interview on campus, as well as many private corporations and the IRS. Job listings come in throughout the year and are posted on the Graduate Tax Program bulletin board and a web-based career services portal for students and employers. In addition, an extensive informal placement procedure is available for those students with more specialized interests. The Program’s growing network of alumni throughout the country also provides significant assistance to graduates.
The Office of Career Development and Opportunities of the College of Law and the Suitts Graduate Career Center of the College of Business offer important support services and maintain detailed job listings available only to University of Denver students and alumni.
The strength of the Graduate Tax Program is clearly evident from the experience of its graduates in seeking employment. In recent years, virtually every recipient of an LL.M. in Taxation or Master of Taxation degree has arranged employment as a tax professional prior to graduation.
