Register Princeton alumni at your organization as Princeternship Program hosts The Princeternship Program is an externship program that allows students to explore their career interests and make professional connections with Princeton alumni. The program involves alumni hosting Princeton students in their workplace during the academic break periods (winter and spring) for one to three days. Organizations may structure activities for the student in a variety of ways to provide them with a realistic “day in the life” experience and valuable exposure to their company including employee shadowing, tours, meetings, informal discussions, or case studies. Students apply to participate in the program and your organization may host one or more students. If you are interested in registering or would like more information, please visit the “Princeternship” section of our website (select “Princeternship” from the shortcut menu at the top of our home page).

Present a skill-building workshop for students or become a “Recruiter in Residence” We welcome employers who wish to share their insights regarding the job search process with our students. For example, our “Case Interview Strategies” workshops are hosted by employers and help students learn how to prepare for the challenges of a case-style interview. Employers may also participate in our “Recruiter in Residence” program to meet with and advise students regarding their job search strategy, provide resume critiques, or mock interview practice sessions. These workshops and visits are advertised in the Daily Princetonian and your organization’s name will be featured in promotional materials and on our website.
