A Tough Job Market Demands Much From You

One option you have: Meet new industry colleagues, answer tough worksite questions, and greet intriguing Tigers -- all at Princeton Net Nights.

Princeton Net Nights launched in DC in 2001 and have evolved ever since.  They're an award-winning speaker series for alums aged 20 to 80, helping you manage the road ahead in jobs, careers, retirement. 

Meet many alums (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Michigan, Penn, Yale, Wharton) -- on hand for expert speakers and guided networking.  We also develop all-Ivy Net Nights (for non-profit careers, corporate issues) to offer insights on critical topics, and give you a platform for many business connections. 

If you're tired of "same-old" networking fare, join us for something really new.

The 2009 downturn puts a premium on your relationships.

Try networking with a real twist: Career ideas+guided interactive networking
where everyone participates, you get to meet all participants, and you test
out what you learn...


"Social Media Networking" and featuring both our networking breakouts
and author Jennifer Abernathy. Join us for the talk+breakouts. DETAILS HERE.


Learn from special speakers on key markets, get ideas on new ways to move
your career forward in this very tough economy.  Then stay to meet seasoned
professionals -- whether in law, government, healthcare, business, non-profits
-- in high-level networking. We use breakouts and facilitators to help answer
your questions.  Discover the power of learning from everyone around you.

And as always at a Net Night, you get a complete participant+contact list
with details on those you meet. There's no option in DC that matches this
combo of networking, learning and the means for taking next steps with
the many you get to know on site.
