Create. Collaborate. Connect.
DEMAN Weekend, part of the Duke Entertainment, Media and the Arts Network, is our annual celebration of alumni who are setting trends and shaping the arts, music, film, television, literature and other creative industries. If you’re looking to move into – or move up – in the arts and media industries, you’ll want to hear these top-of-their-game alumni share stories, insights and practical career advice.
Students: DEMAN Hiring Info!
Duke's DEMAN community has gathered information for fellow Dukies to use for networking and employment outreach. The contacts should be used selectively and not for mass emailing. Please do not distribute this outside of the group that is authorized to access it.
When you contact people on the list, mention the name of the alum that you met during DEMAN weekend and remind them of your previous interaction. If the contact person is in HR or Recruiting, let them know the name of the Duke alum you met during DEMAN weekend. Always send a note to the alum telling them that you have applied for a position and thank them for their help.
Please contact your career center for assistance if you need more guidance. Best of luck!
Alumni: How to Connect @ DEMAN
We have compiled a list that is a representative sample of some of the arts focused groups that align with DEMAN initiatives. Duke has over 600 organizations that can be searched at dukegroups.com or via contacting the University Center Activities & Events (UCAE) office directly for more information. The largest programming and media body on campus is the Duke University Union.
Some categories have a large number of groups on campus (for example dance, improv, and acapella) and thus are not fully represented below. Use the sites above for more details. Many of the groups noted span the Duke campus and are applicable beyond the undergraduate population.
