Volunteer to Help Students

Alumni play a critical role in assisting Princeton undergraduate and graduate students in their career exploration.

The situation around coronavirus has brought on widespread uncertainty for students. The Center for Career Development is helping students pursue ways they can explore careers, gather experience and develop skills, and we could use your help.

We believe our alumni volunteers may be able to provide students with opportunities to learn and grow professionally. Some of those ways include:

  • Completing an Alumni Profile to share insights and reflections about your Princeton and professional experiences to illustrate to students the wide range of career possibilities available to them. Your answers will help students understand skills you use in your work, how you navigated your career path and what a “day in the life” of your job is like.
  • Creating or sharing virtual summer internship/job opportunities at your organization
  • Developing a remote project that students could complete for your organization during the academic year and throughout breaks
  • Connecting with students virtually for one-on-one or small group conversations on topics ranging from informational interviews, industry chats, mock interviews, networking and job search discussions and more

If you can offer assistance in one of these ways, or if you have other career exploration ideas, please email us at careervolunteer@princeton.edu. If there are others in your network that also may be interested in helping, we encourage you to share this with them too.
