Recruiting Nicholas School Students and Alumni

The career services professional staff will assist you with "any and all" of your recruiting needs. We connect employers to top-quality students and "seasoned" alumni trained in environmental science, management, policy and research. Nicholas School Career Services offers a variety of recruiting options to employers:

On-Campus and Off-Campus Recruiting: On-campus interviews can be arranged during the academic year; with either pre-selection or open interview schedules. Career Services offers employers an off-campus interview recruiting option: Career Services advertises your job or internship opportunity, and collects resumes from interested candidates and forward these for your review. Telephone or on-site interviews can be arranged for the selected candidates.

With the explosion of cell phones as the student's "only" telephone service, Career Services provides access to a "land line phone" for these interviews to ensure a quality connection with employers. Contact Career Services at 919.613.8079 or email us at careerservices@env.duke.edu for your recruiting visit or needs.

Duke/Yale Recruiting Fair: Each February in Washington DC, the Nicholas School of the Environment joins forces with Yale University School of Forestry & Environmental Studies to sponsor the Duke/Yale Recruiting Fair. This Fair is a very cost-effective and efficient way for organizations, especially employers who can't do a lot of on-campus recruiting, to meet and interview potential interns or employees. It's the most efficient use of an organization's recruiting resources as it offers one-stop shopping and marketing for the organization to the two top graduate programs. Contact Career Services at 919.613.8102 or email us at careerservices@env.duke.edu for more information about the upcoming Duke/Yale Environmental Recruiting Fair.

Annual Resume Book: While there is no substitute for a personal interview, we recognize that this is not always feasible. The annual resume book is a compilation of resumes of our recent, or upcoming, graduates. If you are interested in speaking further with any of the students whose resumes appear in the resume book, feel free to contact them directly. If preferred, the career services staff is willing to assist you in making contact with our students. With the explosion of cell phones as the student's "only" telephone service, Career Services provides access to a "land line phone" for these interviews to ensure a quality connection with employers. Contact Career Services at 919.613.8016 or email us at careerservices@env.duke.edu if you wish to be mailed a copy of our annual Resume Book.

Duke University Career Fairs: Duke University sponsors two Career Fairs each year: Fall Career Fair and the Career & Summer Opportunities Fair. For annual dates check the University Career Center website (http://www.studentaffairs.duke.edu/career).
