New Career Services Director Starts at Duquesne University
Nicole Feldhues has been named director of the Career Services Center at Duquesne University. As director, she will lead strategic planning efforts for the department as it pursues goals and opportunities to strengthen the career development process for students.
The Pittsburgh native brings more than 14 years of higher education experience to the post, having served most recently as assistant director of The Career Center at Ball State University in Indiana.
"As I look at all of the areas the Career Services Center supports--student career decision-making, internships, job search and professional development-- I believe a key focus will be on how we build collaborations, both on campus and externally," said Feldhues. "Without key partners such as faculty, employers and alumni we can't be successful."
Feldhues earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and education from Washington University in St. Louis and a master's degree in student affairs administration from Ball State University. She also holds a graduate business certificate from the Miller College of Business at Ball State.
Feldhues resides in Moon Township with her husband and their two children.
