Thank you to all of the staff, faculty, employers and alumni who joined us for our open house Friday, Jan. 6, and helped us kick off the new year with a focus on our own career development and how we can all help our students with theirs. 

A Career & Life Vision (CLV) workshop was offered for attendees to give them an inside look at Career Services' signature program for students. Our CLV program helps students discover how to frame meaningful questions about themselves that will guide their decisions and encourages them to use each part of their Princeton experience (academic, extracurricular, experiential and social) to gain insight on these questions and surface new ones. Paired with one-on-one CLV advising, the workshop helps students develop a customized strategy for a lifelong process of self-understanding and aligned career decision-making. 

The workshop was followed by a reception to thank our partners who help students and encourage everyone to join our Tiger Career Community. A curated network of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, Tiger Career Community members volunteer to provide advice, mentorship and participate in events and programs to assist students begin to navigate their career development process while at Princeton. 

Be on the lookout for additional events throughout the year to connect students with members of the Princeton community for mentoring, networking recruiting and more. Interested in joining the cause? Contact Andria Mirabal '08, associate director, student/alumni engagement.
