Present Career Education Programs

Employers have a wealth of career guidance to provide to students, and we are delighted when organizations share their expertise. There are several ways that your organization can partner with Career Services to assist Princeton students immersed in the career development process. 

Present a Workshop

Workshops are educational opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Here, they can learn about career paths, or bolster industry or career development skills such as job search strategies or interviewing skills. Workshops should offer general information that students can transfer to a variety of organizations — not information specific to your particular organization. 

  • Employer benefits: Become an integrated part of the career development process for Princeton students.
  • Schedule a workshop: Please register through Handshake.

Become an Employer in Residence

During these Employer-in-Residence programs, alumni and employers meet individually with students for 20-30 minutes and offer career advice. These sessions take the form of an informational interview in which you can talk about your career path, share career advice or provide resume critiques.

  • Employer benefits: You'll meet Princeton students and your organization's name will be featured in promotional materials and on our website.
  • Schedule an employer-in-residence session: Please register through Handshake as an event request.

Identify Alumni Mentors or Princeternship Hosts

If you have Princeton alumni at your organization, encourage them to reach out to Career Services to mentor a current student, or provide a Princeternship experience.

Take a Ph.D. to Work

Want to meet talented Ph.D.'s and build connections with the Princeton University community? Volunteer to help students investigate a career field and make connections by a Ph.D. candidate for one or two days for job shadowing as part of our Bring a Ph.D. to Work program. 

One of Princeton University's most diverse and talented pool of candidates for employers is often it's most overlooked - Ph.D.'s. A Ph.D. program is a job, and candidates and recent graduates essentially have more than four years of experience with transferable skills

Employers interested in participating are invited to register with Career Services and coordinate visit dates and time with students directly after an introduction from the project coordinators. Career Services will provide a virtual information session for hosts before the visit and will assist in the coordination of the visit and scheduling.  Employers will be invited to a mixer at the end of the project month where students will share their experiences.
