Apply for a Princeternship

Looking for a great way to spend a few days of winter break? Want to meet alumni and get an inside look at career fields that interest you? Apply for a Princeternship, which matches undergraduate students with alumni for job shadowing and project experience over one to five days. Applications for the winter Princeternship sessions open Oct. 11 and will close Nov. 8. Undergraduate students of all years can apply in Handshake.

Princeternships provide a “day in the life” in the workplace, with students often participating in board, client or patient meetings; office tours; seminars; case studies and projects. During a winter Princeternship, students have the opportunity to:

  • Explore a career field of interest, without the commitment of an internship

  • Gain first-hand knowledge of a real work environment and on-the-job etiquette

  • Uncover possible internships and options for future careers

  • Connect directly with an alum host, who can serve as an excellent resource for career, job and internship advice

  • Learn about the job application process by submitting a resume and interviewing for a position

There are more than 70 positions available with 38 different organizations during this session, including opportunities in arts and entertainment, communications, business, consulting, entrepreneurship, education, government, healthcare, law, nonprofit and STEM. To learn more about the program and get a firsthand look at past experiences through student blogs, visit our Princeternship page.
