Princeternship Program Overview
This publication describes the Princeternship career exploration program sponsored by the Office of Career Services at Princeton University. Established in 2008, the program involves matching students with alumni hosts who volunteer to provide an externship experience for students in their workplace during academic break periods. By visiting with alumni in the workplace, students get an “inside look” at the work world, experience a “day in the life” of a particular profession, begin to develop a network of contacts, and draw connections between their academic and career interests. To aide in the career education process, students write reflective blogs about their Princeternship experiences. Additional information and students blogs are available at www.princeton.edu/career.
