Book Cover of The 2-Hour Job SearchThe 2-Hour Job Search Featuring Steve Dalton, Author and Program Director of Daytime Career Services at Fuqua School of Business

In this workshop, Fuqua career coach and The 2-Hour Job Search author Steve Dalton offers an exact process–rather than a series of tips–for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more internal referrals and more job interviews. This session proposes an efficient alternative to hopelessly applying to online job postings by turning the difficult topic of networking into something finite and replicable. To create this process, Dalton drew upon the latest science ranging from behavioral economics to operations theory to social psychology to split networking into its three component parts: prioritization, outreach, and recruiting advocacy. Each will be discussed in turn to help job seekers harness free and simple technology to get the right job faster.

This is a joint workshop sponsored by the Nicholas School of the Environment, Sanford School of Public Policy, Pratt School of Engineering, Duke Career Center and the Fuqua School of Business and is part of the 2020-21 Careers Beyond Academia series. Questions? Contact Duke Career Center at
