Alumni as Job Seekers

Duquesne alumni may continue to use all of the services and resources in the Center for Career Development as they did when they were students, at no charge, including meeting with your Career Consultant. You may attend events and programs designed to refresh your skills for interviewing, writing resumes and cover letters and more.


As an alum, you have access to our online job board, Handshake. Note that the same policies apply to alumni as for students.

If you are a recruiter, you may use Handshake to post jobs and internships. Please review the procedures under Employer Recruiting and learn about our Hire-A-Duke program.

On-Campus Interviewing

Alumni may participate in On-Campus Interviewing through the same processes used by students. Handshake provides details about companies that are coming to campus, available jobs and interview schedules.

As employers, alumni may also recruit on campus and set up an interview schedule.  

Fraudulent job postings and scams

A quick note about fraudulent job postings and scams. The Center for Career Development makes every reasonable effort to review employers and job postings on Handshake; however we cannot guarantee the legitimacy and validity of each organization or person that posts a job vacancy.
