ALUMNI ENGAGEMENT PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES & ALUMNI SERVICES PARTNERSHIPS When you remember your days at Princeton, was there someone who had a significant impact on your early career decisions? Someone who offered advice, shared their insights, or advocated for you? Someone who helped shape your career direction? Each year more than 250 alumni partner with our office to help students We invite you to share your expertise with current students by participating in any of our student-alumni engagement programs The Alumni Careers Network (ACN) An online database of over 4,800 alumni volunteers who have offered to share career advice with students. Students (and alumni) may search by industry, job function or geographic area. This is an opt-in component of the TigerNet directory. Now, more than ever, we appreciate the continued support of alumni who, through their dedication and involvement with their alma mater, are making a difference by sharing their insights and advice for current students as they navigate through the job search and career decision making process. Princeternship Program Offered during academic break periods, alumni may host students at their workplace to give them a “day in the life” perspective of an industry or profession over one to three days. Students write blogs about these “externship” experiences, which are featured on our website. Princeton-in-Washington (PIW) Established in the 1960s to create a community among students interning or visiting our nation’s capital over the summer, alumni may participate and/or host a variety of student-alumni networking programs, special events, and/or serve as guest speakers. IMAGINE Speaker Series Offered four times a year, alumni guest speakers are invited to share their career journey and all the unexpected, unimagined opportunities and challenges along the way. These programs are videotaped and archived on our website and YouTube. Alumni Connections & Summer Networking Receptions Opportunities for students and alumni to meet face-to-face are offered in the summer through regional alumni clubs as well as oncampus in the fall. Career Panels & Guest Speakers Every semester, alumni are welcome to participate as panelists and guest speakers for our “Careers in...” programs. Alumni share information about their professional experience and offer advice for students regarding careers in their industry. Industry Expert Program Alumni are invited to offer professional development seminars, within their field of expertise, on topics not offered through academic curricula. For example, a full-day “Intro to Marketing” seminar has been offered in the past. Free Job & Internship Posting Service Alumni may post job or internship opportunities for Princeton students, recent graduates, and alumni within our system for free.
