Learning about career paths and getting hands-on work experience while you're at Princeton is tough. That's why we created Princeternship.  

Taking place during winter recess, Princeternship offers undergraduate students the chance to explore career fields and make connections with alumni and employers without the commitment of an internship or job. There are more than 340 positions available with more than 90 different organizations, including opportunities in:

Applications open Monday, Oct. 2. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Learn more about all the Princeternship opportunities and apply through Handshake

Princeternships can be either virtual or in-person, ranging from one- to five-day shadowing experiences to one- to four-week projects. Princeternships provide undergraduate students an opportunity to get to know the career path of their alum host, learn about possible fields and potentially get tangible experience in environments focused on students' learning and growth. Opportunities span a range of geographic regions and fields.
