A Message to Parents from the Director of the Center for Career Development

NicoleDear Duquesne Parents:

While at Duquesne, your son or daughter's future career direction will be formed through self-discovery, exploration, and a series of important decisions.  The Center for Career Development is here to help throughout this process.

The heart of our mission is to prepare students to pursue successful and meaningful careers by:

  • Offering innovative career planning, job search and employment resources
  • Facilitating lifelong career management
  • Helping students develop professional skills for success
  • Serving as a central link among students, faculty, employers, and alumni

As parents, you play an integral role in your student’s career development. The Parent Information section of the Center for Career Development's website is designed to provide you information about career planning at Duquesne and ideas of how you can support your son or daughter as they explore career choices.

Contact us!

Please review the information we have provided for you and take some time to explore the student section as well. If you have specific questions that are not answered here, please feel free to us at 412.396.6644 or

Next time you are on campus, stop in at the Center for Career Development in the Union, room 614. We’d love the opportunity to meet you and show you the resources available to assist your son or daughter in achieving their career goals.
