Career Center

Career Services

Take full advantage of the range of services we provide to support your professional development and career searching processes. It is no mistake that many of these are face-to-face interactions! Making hiring decisions is highly interpersonal and developing your ability to have conversations about yourself, your interests, and your accomplishments is essential. 

Career Counseling

The goal of career counseling at the Duke University Career Center is to help students and alumni develop an action plan for accomplishing their personal career goals. Since there are benefits to developing a relationship with your counselor as soon as your first year at Duke, we hope you’ll visit early and often.

Call (919) 660-1050 to schedule an appointment.

Career counselors can help you to:

  • explore career possibilities
  • learn about how your studies and careers relate
  • articulate your values, skills and interests
  • create strategies for making the most of your Duke experience
  • find industry specific advice and information
  • identify internship and job opportunities
  • develop job search skills

Drop-In Advising

Why go?
Drop-In Advising is the best way to get immediate and ongoing feedback on your resumes and other documents.  You can also use drop-in advising to ask any quick career questions, learn about the career center, and our resources.  You'll spend 10 to 15 minutes with an advisor, so don't hesitate to organize your thoughts in advance to make the most of the time!

How it works
Bring your printed documents to be reviewed (In Smith Warehouse, there is an ePrint station in Bay 6, 1st Floor). Sign in when you arrive -first come, first served.
