Career Services administrative staff implement the strategy and vision for Princeton University's career development initiatives. This includes promoting opportunities and resources to Princeton students and alumni, managing day-to-day operations — from budgets to technology — and ensuring that those investigating their career paths have ongoing access to a broad range of career programming to help them plan for future success.
Career Counseling Staff
Career counselors assist students and alumni in choosing a major, exploring career interests, applying to graduate or professional school, looking for a job or internship or developing a career strategy. Our career counseling staff is knowledgeable in the career development process, a wide range of career options and industries, graduate school application procedures and job market trends. We have listed some specialty areas below, however all of our career counselors can meet with any Princeton undergraduate, graduate student or alumna/us.
Employer Relations Staff
Princeton boasts an incredibly active campus recruitment program. The employer relations staff ensures a continual, dedicated approach to employer outreach, connecting students to job and internship opportunities with a diverse array of global employers. In addition, regular on-campus employer presentations and programs assist those students who are defining their career goals during their time at the University.
Peer Career Advisors
Our Peer Career Advisor program supports the involvement of Princeton undergraduates in assisting their peers with career information, resources and referrals. They also represent Career Services in programs and functions across campus. Peer career advisors (PCAs) are trained in providing information to fellow students about our programs, directing students to available resources and serving as a first point of contact for students seeking career-related information. Each residential college has a designated PCA lead or co-lead.
