Advance your career.

students looking at laptop In choosing a Duke graduate program, you have come a long way toward understanding yourself. Yet you are not a finished product, and your graduate school experience will transform you in significant ways, deepening your knowledge and self-awareness. Earning an advanced degree is a foundation for further intellectual and personal growth, and a pathway to discovering multiple career options.

We support and encourage career exploration as well as partner with students who have decided and are planning for any type of career in the academy, private industry, government, nonprofits, start-ups, and anywhere in between. We are engaged in working with students to explore how different careers suit them and how to conduct multiple, simultaneous job and internship searches in different fields.

Additionally, we work with faculty and staff around the university who are interested in the professional development of students. Our experienced advisors are available to meet with students enrolled in the Duke Graduate School, Duke Divinity School, Duke Medicine School’s Master of Biostatistics and Population Health Sciences programs. We work from a strengths-based perspective that can be tailored for each individual and can be viewed as attaining mastery in the Duke Career Development Process and skills for career readiness. 

You can get started on your own or meet with us before you start and at any point. If you would like a thought partner or advisor to work through something, please schedule time to meet with a career advisor in Handshake.
