Featured Jobs and Internships of the Week – Opportunities in Arts

Each week the Career Services team will highlight new or unusual opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students and alumni. This edition features picks from Autumn Weyant ’20 and Sher Gill ’21, who assist our employer outreach team to expand recruiting opportunities at Princeton.
