I first joined the Career Ambassador (CA) Team at the Career Center as a rising sophomore that really marked the beginning of my career development journey at Duke. I came across someone tabling for CA application in front of marketplace during freshman spring semester and out of whim, I applied and was later accepted as a CA.
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.
So you’re thinking of studying abroad in the fall, but you’re not sure what that means for recruitment season. It will definitely affect your ability to attend info sessions, connect directly with employers on campus, and manage in-person interview requests . . . but it’s totally do-able and with some preparation and planning, can be a success!
Employers regularly come to Duke to recruit graduate and undergraduate students. The Career Center helps these employers to host interviews, career fairs, and info sessions. But many employers rely on their usual marketing materials to promote their organizations as a great place to work.
Common feedback we receive from first-year students is wishing they knew about some of our Career Center resources earlier. To eliminate this, we have compiled our most relevant and sought-after resources that will help you explore career options, get started looking for experiential opportunities, and stay informed.
Hey Duke Students! Today, is a really exciting day for me. Not too long ago, I was feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of finding an internship in my small hometown, in order to eliminate the cost of living elsewhere. I felt forced to live at home and find work experience close by in order to eliminate extra living costs.
Hey there Duke students! I hope the Spring semester is treating you well so far. I’m definitely busy with classes, clubs, and Career Center blogging, but I think I’ve finally found my groove. With everything settling in at school, I feel less stressed than I did last semester. It feels like I’ve got a handle on my life, both school and social.
First-years, are you taking advantage of one of the most important resources available to you through the Career Center?
