Center for Career Development

36 university place

The Center for Career Development supports students of all years and interests to explore and prepare for careers they find personally meaningful and to understand how their intersecting identities – their backgrounds, experiences, voices, and perspectives— may inform career decision-making, work, and professional development.


Meeting with a career adviser

The Center for Career Development offers in-person and virtual one-on-one advising to help students reflect on their values and strengths, pursue opportunities that match their unique interests, and design personalized plans to achieve their goals. 

Advising sessions are casual conversations. Whether you have a topic in mind or are unsure where to start, meeting with an adviser is a good next step.

You do not have to have anything figured out before an advising appointment. Advisers can help you discuss your questions, determine your interests, and how to start creating a personalized plan.

Career Paths

Princeton students graduate into a wide range of career fields, informed by skills learned throughout their studies. This interactive chart illustrates how – within an academic division (e.g., engineering) or across the University –  those paths are not dictated by major.

A great way to start exploring a career option is by reading about someone who followed that path. Check out the Career Compass website, where alumni offer advice and reflections about their experiences.
