LinkedIn: Duke University Alumni Network
We encourage students to join the Duke University Alumni Network on as a way to explore careers and find professionals who would be willing to spend a few minutes discussing their own career path and decisions. Over 15,000 Duke Alumni are already participants who connect with each other, participate in discussions, and share career resources.

[Join the Network]

Alumni can join DukeConnect, where students can tap into the best resource available, alumni who understand where they have been and can offer advice on where they are going. DukeConnect is a database for Duke alumni and students to search for and connect with alumni who are willing to give career, life-stage, and other general advice.

DukeConnect is not an employment database, it is simply a resource intended to bring the Duke community together in a forum of ideas, advice, and common interests. To make this resource as beneficial as possible, we need your help to build the most diverse volunteer community possible.

Shadowing and Mentoring
Many students evaluate career options and industries by finding a mentor and shadowing that person. Shadowing and mentoring come in many forms, from formal opportunities to simply spending a day at the office. Mentors can help students gain insight into the realities of jobs, learn the lingo, build networks, and focus their career goals. For more information on volunteering for shadowing or mentoring, please register directly in DukeConnect.
