Career Assist

June 1, 2007

Two new staff members have joined the Office of Alumni Affairs, the better to enhance and expand alumni career options. Louise Giordano, formerly a career counselor at Brown University, is the new alumni career adviser.

Before coming to Brown, Giordano worked in Providence College's alumni career advising program for five years. Her background also includes directing business placement at Johnson & Wales University and teaching foreign languages in public and private schools in New England.

New alumni career coordinator Maria Crawford works in collaboration with the Career Center and the Duke Alumni Association to strengthen the relationship with alumni through recruiting mentors and volunteers who can provide career advice to Duke students and alumni. Crawford also assists with Career Week and Homecoming career programs and is responsible for managing the DukeConnect volunteer database.
