PAAA Career Services Networking Reception - 17 July 2008

This summer, the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) and the Office of Career Services at Princeton University are collaborating to host a networking reception for Princeton students and alumni who are living and working in the Princeton area this summer.

Princeton students are extremely interested in obtaining information and advice about their future career options, while also developing skills and strategies for effectively networking for future internship and job search or preparation for graduate study.

The event will feature a panel of alumni from various fields, sharing their insights on how Princeton has prepared them for future career options, success, and transitions. After a brief panel discussion, we will break into small groups so that students can hear more directly from you about your career advice, stories, and information.

We would like invite you to join the reception, providing students with the opportunity to interact with you while you also interact with your fellow alumni.

Alumni of all classes welcome, but space is limited, so please reply quickly!
Thursday, July 17, 6:30pm-8:00pm
