Our Guiding Philosophy: Career Everywhere for Everyone

Career Everywhere for Everyone, is the belief and understanding that students are seeking advice about their career aspirations and the questions associated with those goals not only from the staff at the Career Center but from faculty and staff, Duke alumni, our employer partners, their peers and more. It is our role to create and curate career content, identify and amplify career resources, consult and collaborate with campus colleagues, and to set the vision for a campus committed to career readiness and career success. We are committed to ensuring that students do not fall through the cracks and have access to the tools, resources and support they deserve for a purpose driven life. 
With that philosophy, we have three guiding principles–Relevancy, Visibility, and Inclusivity. [Learn More]
