About Career Services:

We help our students define a unique career and life vision, and then connect them in multidimensional, personalized ways to the resources, people, organizations and opportunities that will enable them to make their visions a reality. Our vision is to empower Princetonians to design their careers and lives proactively in ways that help them align with meaningful opportunities across their lifetime. In everything we do, whether within our career center, across campus, the country or the world, the highly dedicated and experienced staff of Career Services strives to:

Educate: Offer services, resources and learning-based programs that support the integration of academic and career interests and the development of lifelong career management skills.

Engage: Establish and maintain relationships first and foremost with our students, but also with employers, graduate and professional schools and alumni to facilitate their connection to our students.

Empower: Collaborate with our many constituents and stakeholders to provide a broad range of meaningful opportunities and experiences for students that build confidence and clarity, and ultimately begin careers.

 

Learning Objectives:

The UAF will work closely with the Senior Assoc. Director for education and programming to continue the development of their Tiger Threads program, which is intended to help students gain access to quality clothing for interviews. The Tiger Threads program is comprised of the three components:

  • An interview clothes lending program
  • A series of Dress for Success workshop series
  • Pop-Up Shop events where students can shop through donated clothes

The program launched this past year with great success: the main pop-shop in February had over 120 students attend; we had a number of dress for success workshops with trips to consignment shops; and the lending program is beginning to gain traction. The UAF will lead the coordination and promotion of all three areas of the Tiger Threads program during the fall semester and begin preparation for the main Pop-Up shop event scheduled for early spring semester.
