Take a deep dive into the many career fields available as you explore the path to your future. Discover the possible job roles, how to gain experience while at Princeton, valuable resources and hiring tips for internships and jobs. Your career isn’t decided by your concentration, and each step you take in exploration opens doors to a new opportunity.
Learn about the diverse career paths and experiences of Princeton alumni. In addition to detailing their academic and co-curricular activities at Princeton, alumni candidly share their professional experience, skills they use in their work, how they navigate their career path and what a day in the life of their job is like. Students can contact most of the featured alumni through their profile.
Film, Television and Talent
A common point of entry into film or television is to start as an assistant. Assistants support multiple projects and their responsibilities are varied and frequently change by the day. Assistant roles provide broad exposure to the field and set the stage for learning about what types of roles one might choose to pursue down the line.
I am so excited to use the Career Compass website. I have been looking for a comprehensive site that allows me to explore all the different career fields and also be able to connect with alumni all in one place! I am very much looking forward to this great resource, so I can start reaching out to alums and exploring my possible career paths!
