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

The guides on the Center for Career Development website are great resources for students with all levels of experience! Whether you need help with your resume, cover letter, the internship & job search, networking, interview prep, or even grad school applications, the guides are a great way to get started and they can also be a useful summary before a deadline or interview. Using these guides along with the career advisers and PCAs can ensure that you're completely prepared!

What advice would you give to someone considering your major/industry/area of expertise?

Networking is the most important skill when looking to start a career in finance! While interview preparation, resumes, and cover letters are important, networking with people at the firms you're interested in, specifically Princeton alumni, is the best way to make sure that you get that first round interview. Companies in the financial sector want to hire students that show interest in their work and by cold-emailing alumni in the industry, you can stand out from the many applicants that don't network while gaining key insights about navigating interview processes and making major career decisions.
