PCNG SUMMER INTERNSHIP NETWORKING EVENT - DECEMBER 17, 2020
10th Annual Summer Internship Networking Event for current Princeton students, Alumni, and Parents in Chicago interested in supporting students in summer internship opportunities. Given the unique circumstances we all are experiencing together this year, this event will be held via Zoom. RSVP by SATURDAY 12/12 @ midnight!
All alumni and parents in the area are invited to attend a special meeting of the Princeton-Chicago Networking Group ("PCNG") that will bring together alums, parents, and current Princeton students in the spirit of networking and *hopefully* summer employment.
- Are you a current student or alum who has started the search for a summer internship?
- Do you know a Princeton student or alum seeking a summer internship?
- Are you an alum or parent who has (or may soon have) a summer intern position available at your firm?
- Are you an alum or parent who would like to give advice on how to best position oneself for a successful internship search?
If your answer to any of the questions above is "yes", then this event is for you!
This is a unique opportunity for Princeton alums, parents, and current Princeton undergrad/graduate students to network around the topic of summer employment in the Chicagoland area. Whether you are trying to fill an internship position or are hoping to find an internship, this event will give you a head start on the process before the holiday season ends.
As the Princeton Club of Chicago's activities have shown through the years, there is great value in face-to-face contact for sensitive introductions, career counseling, and career strategy.
Networking is a fundamental and critical business skill. Develop and exercise your networking skills for a variety of purposes:
- For undergraduate/graduate students: Learn about internship opportunities in the Chicagoland area. Meet other Princetonians who could serve as mentors. Learn to network to a job. Get more connected with the Princeton community in Chicago.
- For alums and parents: Meet a group of stellar candidates for summer internships. Learn about other industries. Serve as a mentor to other Princetonians or meet someone who could be a mentor. Get more connected.
- All: Develop this critical skill before you need it
Preparation, in advance of luncheon
