Career Communities

What is a Career Community?

What is a Career Community?

Your Duke degree is valuable across a wide range of careers, sectors and industries. Your academic major doesn’t limit you to a specific job type or field, and now is a great time to explore what the world of work has to offer. Career Communities are a way to connect with people, information, and resources to explore interests and connect to potential opportunities. We encourage you to explore and follow any career communities that align with your interests, goals, and career plans. Eight of our career communities focus on a major industry, such as Healthcare, Data & Technology, or Education, Non-profit & Social Impact, for example. For students who are are unsure of your interests, undecided on which of your interests to pursue, or considering post-duke options, the Discovery and Exploration Community is designed just for you. For students who are exploring interests and career paths.  The best approach is to explore broadly by browsing several career communities that interest you. Your skills are transferrable to many career paths. Get insider knowledge about careers. Here are just a few of the benefits of following a career community:

  • Jobs, internships, research and volunteer opportunities curated for members of the community
  • Announcements of professional development opportunities, events and career fairs targeted to communities
  • Featured blog posts with tips from career advisors, alumni and student success stories, insider info from employers and other helpful resources
  • Community subgroups with recommended tools for exploring careers, networking, researching employers, searching for internships and jobs, and more
