Every fall, the campus descends into a corporate frenzy. Immediately after O-Week ends, students in dark suits start popping up all over campus, and the environment at the Career Center becomes increasingly corporate. Until my senior year as a public policy major, I considered myself relatively immune to the consulting rush and stress that accompanies it.
I recently had a conversation with Taryn, a hiring manager at Voalte (acquired by Hillrom). Check out what she had to say about exploring careers and the company culture at Hillrom, as well as their Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, and advice to students.
One question we often get in the Career Center is, “Where do I search for available jobs?” The answer really depends on what you’re looking for, but there are many resources for job seekers.
For the first time in history, Conduent hosted graduate students, grad alumni, and Career Center staff at their global innovation and corporate hub in Morrisville, NC in July.

Skills, not major are what matter along with developing the competencies necessary to thrive in a dynamic environment, whether it be Duke University or a changing work world!
The Duke Career Center is excited to facilitate connections between students and employers throughout the year. Many opportunities lie ahead to engage with employers, and we want to ensure students are aware of policies and expectations that guide behaviors in the process.
The Career Center wants you to be prepared and empowered for an offer discussion. Whether you’re in an internship now and seeking a return offer or gearing up for fall recruiting, the steps below will help you advocate for yourself in the process when it’s time for an offer conversation.
1. Know what’s important to you
Whether vying for a job, an internship, a scholarship, or even admission to graduate or professional school, interviewing is likely to be part of the process, and for many, the most difficult part. After all, how can you prepare to answer questions when you don’t know what they are? Any interview will require a degree of improvisation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare. In fact, preparing and finding the confidence to ace your interview is as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4.
