Careers and Events

The Water Quality Management department is very well networked with the local Denver metro area utilities. Many of them send their open positions straight to us and we make them available to students.  Red Rocks Community College has resources available both on and off campus to assist students with their academic experience and prepare them to enter the workforce.  The Career Services center helps students with resume writing, mock interviews, and career exploration. Contact the WQM department if you have questions about careers in the water industry:
