Career Everywhere for Everyone

The philosophy “Career Everywhere For Everyone” is used to articulate our belief that students are not only seeking advice about their career aspirations and questions from the staff at the Career Center but faculty, staff, Duke alumni, our employer partners, and more. In partnership with our community members, we serve as a hub to ensure you have the resources needed to engage in these conversations and advance equity by not allowing students to access the tools, resources, and support for life after Duke.

It is our role to create and curate career content; identify and amplify career resources; consult and collaborate with campus colleagues; and set the vision for a campus committed to career readiness and success. If you are interested in getting more involved with us you can meet the Career Influencer Network or nominate a colleague or yourself today!
