Karsh Conversations

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Duke alum? Do you want to hear from graduates about how they navigated their post-Duke experiences? Are you interested in exploring the endless possibilities of careers after Duke? Then Karsh Conversations are for you!

A collaboration between the Duke Career Center and the Office of Alumni Development and Engagement, Karsh Conversations encompass several programs that provide Duke students with the opportunity to engage in dynamic conversations and relationship-building activities with Duke alumni as well the space and opportunity to meet with professionals in different career sectors to learn more about career readiness and advancement.

Hosted by the Duke Alumni Engagement and Development, Karsh Conversations hosted at the Karsh Alumni and Visitors Center will bring together current Duke students and alumni from a variety of industries for small-group dinners at the Karsh Alumni and Visitors Center (KAVC) to allow for dynamic conversations and relationship-building.

Hosted by the Duke Career Center, Karsh Conversations focused on career exploration and development within specific career sectors will occur around campus and virtually throughout the semester. This series is open to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students enrolled at Duke.
