What's the most underrated/overlooked resource or service offered by the Center for Career Development?

Peer Career Advisers! I think having a peer perspective on anything is arguably the most overlooked resource, not to mention the most abundant in supply.

How has your idea of a career or your career interests changed in the past 10 months?

The way I see it, coursework and career interests are extremely intertwined. The content learned from your courses and professors has a tendency to inform and influence your choices henceforth. For example, within the past year, my rather narrow-minded, stuffy view of law and the legal services has greatly broadened to encompass nonprofit, environmental, charity, and pro bono work. As an undergrad, especially at Princeton, you have numerous opportunities to reevaluate your values, ethics, motivations, and interests, all of which influence career decision-making. I heavily encourage others to allow your evolving academic journey to similarly inform your career choices.
