Career & Life Vision

A critical component of Career Services' mission focusing on the value of self-exploration and meaningful work, the Career and Life Vision program is designed to help students answer the question, "What matters most to me and why?" The program encourages each student to ask questions, challenge assumptions and explore unconventional paths during their time at Princeton and afterwards to discover their unique vision of what a happy and meaningful life looks like for them. 

Introduced in the winter of 2014, the Career and Life Vision program has helped students select majors and courses of study, find extracurricular activities, determine their post-graduation plans and more.

All students are encouraged to attend a workshop which uses exercises and small group interactions to help you understand and articulate your values, beliefs and purpose. You will leave with a new understanding of yourself and inspiration to follow the path most consistent with your unique vision of a happy and meaningful career and life.
