Jobs & Internships

Adviser and student talking

Discovering your career path is about more than simply finding a job or internship.
It’s about finding your own unique path, and we’re here to partner with you on your exploration and search. Whatever your next step, be it graduate school, your dream job, or just the first of many next steps, we are here to work with you to develop a career plan that’s right for you.

Your career center is a heavily utilized office, here at Duke. Last year alone, the Career Center team met with more than 3,000 students and alumni in appointments and Drop-in Advising. We provide a wide range of resources, services, and events, designed to aid in career decision-making and preparation for a purposeful career.

A very small sample of the resources we provide are job and internship listings and databases. You can use these tools to explore, network, and apply for opportunities. If you're just starting your search and want to find an internship that interests you and that you would be excited to apply to, please start at Get Started or Know Yourself!
