Support & Resources for Spring

We support undergraduate and graduate students of all years and interests to explore and prepare for careers they find personally meaningful. 

Career development is an ongoing process, and everyone’s path is different. We can help you:

  • Discover your interests, skills and values
  • Explore options
  • Build experience and skills
  • Identify and apply for opportunities that interest you

This spring, we're offering advising and programs both in person and virtually. The Center for Career Development is located at 36 University Place, Suite 200 (above the U-Store). 

Advising

Advisers can help you talk through your questions, figure out what interests you and how to start putting together a personalized plan.

In-person and virtual appointments for undergraduate and graduate students are available year-round — even during academic breaks.

Advising appointments

We offer in-person and virtual advising for undergraduate and graduate students to help them reflect on their values and strengths, pursue opportunities that match their unique interests and design personalized plans to achieve their goals.

Make an appointment in Handshake

Drop-in advising

Drop-ins are 15-minute, in-person advising sessions for undergraduates that do not require an appointment.

Drop-ins are held daily when classes are in session (Monday-Thursday from 2-4 p.m. and 12-4 p.m. on Fridays).

Campus Recruiting Program

Students have the opportunity to attend information sessions, employer-led career education programs and interviews for internships and full-time positions without leaving campus. 

While hiring takes place throughout the year, it's common for certain industries to have specified recruiting periods.

Students on Leave

The Center for Career Development can provide students with advice about possible career advancement and potential opportunities during their time away from Princeton.

During leave, students can continue to access Handshake to find job and internship postings and register for workshops. Students can also use Handshake to schedule advising appointments, but should keep in mind that enrolled students will receive priority for appointments, and students on leave may have a longer wait to meet with an adviser.

Please note that there are opportunities that may not be available to students on leave. For specific questions, check with a Center for Career Development adviser.
