For some graduate students, the path from their Princeton experience to a career is straightforward. For most graduate students, it is not. We're here to help you create and implement a personalized career action plan for your time on campus and beyond. We offer one-on-one advising and specialized programs for graduate students that can help you:

  • Assess your values, interests, skills and strengths
  • Discover career options both inside and outside academia
  • Build a professional network
  • Create/revise CVs, resumes and cover letters
  • Prepare for upcoming interviews
  • Refine communications and networking skills

There are not any prerequisites to make an advising appointment or attend an event. Graduate students in all departments, years and stages of their program are welcome. If you are in one of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs graduate programs, be sure to consult their Career Services and Alumni Relations office.
