Information and resources for Students with Disabilities.

Searching for a job or internship is challenging and time-consuming, however, knowing the resources and organizations that can assist you through the process can help reduce stress and make the process a little easier.

The Career Center is one of those resources and can assist you with strategizing your search, sharing your story and guiding you through the application process!

We hope to continue to add resources that might be helpful and if you find something valuable, please share it with us by using the Guest login (top right of Duke Hub).
