Fall 2020 Incoming Student Email #9

Dear MEM Students,

As a reminder, the Engineering Master’s Programs and MEM program orientation activities will take place virtually during the week of August 10. The complete schedule with Zoom links is included below.

August 10 is also the day you will gain access to the Online Career Center for engineering master’s students. This site, within MS Teams, is designed as a one-stop online career center with easy access and real-time information for your career planning, job/internship search, and professional development opportunities. The morning of August 10, you will receive a message about the launch, including a video tour of the site. Access begins Monday, August 10 at 12:00 p.m. EST. 

With the Online Career Center you will: 

  • Get real-time updates about jobs, internships, events, opportunities, and current work/internship impacts. And share updates you find with your classmates!
  • Easily contact a career coach by chat or video without worrying about appointments. 
  • Check in with your peers for support and answers to your questions.
  • Quickly find customized and high-quality tools and information to guide your search strategy & get help with common tasks. 

The Career Services & Professional Development team is excited for you to begin your first semester at Duke and looks forward to working with you!
