A Devil's Perspective

Hey Duke Students!

As students at a top notch research institution, there is so much pressure to “find your passion” and solidify an area of study. Duke is a pressure cooker for putting students on elite career paths and sometimes it can feel like we’re all in a mad dash to find a major that will lead to an internship that will lead to a job. In order to do this, students often rush to decide on a course of study without really taking the time to find that passion that they so desperately seek.

A Devil's Perspective

Hey Duke! Happy Thursday! Can you believe that it’s already February? This first year of college has really flown by for me. So much has happened and I’ve really acquired a lot of life skills that I feel ready to put to use. Some people are looking forward to the summertime because of the increased free time and ability to visit with old friends. While all of that definitely applies to me as well, I think what I’m most looking forward to is the opportunity to have a job in a line of work that aligns with my career goals for the future!

First years, did you know that the Career Center has a program exclusively for you called Fyrst Contact? Well, we do, and it is an amazing program. This program connects first-year students with companies and employers who are interested in engaging with first years. Fyrst Contact is offered online and it is more of an information session versus a recruitment session. Some of the companies who participate are looking for interns and will provide that information during the session. You can view and register for these sessions through CareerConnections.
