Princeton Global NetNight 2012

Princeton Area Alumni Association Global NetNight

Cheryl L. Rowe-Rendleman, ‘81

 

Wednesday March 14, 2012

According to Tom Peter’s Career Survival Guide, we are all CEOs of our own companies. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You. Princeton Alumni from around the world gathered on March 14-pi Day – for the second annual Princeton Global Net Night (GNN). Over 600 alumni from 28 regional associations met, exchanged business cards, and pondered this year’s central theme “Developing Your Personal Brand.”

“Everyone has a brand whether you think about it that way or not,” stated Dr. Andrea Zintz, Managing Director of Strategic Leadership Resources (http://www.strategicleadershipresources.com/) and speaker at the Princeton Area Alumni Association’s Global Net Night. In an ice-breaker exercise, Zintz asked 25 PA3 alumni, who had gathered at the office of Princeton AlumniCorps on 12 Stockton Street, to provide four words that described their impression of their networking partner’s personal brand. She explained that strong brands evoke an emotional response from each person’s customers, bosses, and colleagues.  People were branded with words like busy, traditional, nonconformist, self-directed, and enthusiastic. Several participants were surprised at the impressions they gave to and received from others within the first few minutes of meeting. Zintz explained that a brand is any number of written, digital or interpersonal impressions that we share consistently about ourselves. She then spent the rest of the evening leading an interactive discussion about why we align ourselves with certain brand and how to manage our personal brands for career development. This year’s Net Night was ably managed by Andrew Lieu ’06  and attracted a lively gathering of Tigers representing graduations years from 1976 to 2008 and various career stages with alumni  transitioning, trolling, or settled in their careers.

For more information or discussions on developing your personal brand join the Princeton Global NetNight groups  on Linkedin (http://www.linkedin.com) or Facebook.

Additional Info: PA3 is hosting its second Global NetNight event. Last year over 25 Princeton alumni gathered together and enjoyed an evening of learning and networking. Attendees representing a span of over 60 years of Princeton undergraduate and graduate education met at Maclean House on the topic of Networking Without Borders.

Message from the Speaker:
You may have heard people say they are working on creating their "personal brand." Of course, you don’t really “create” a personal brand. You already have one! To prove this, simply Google your name followed by your home town. If you have a Facebook page or LinkedIn profile your name probably comes up on the first page. Perhaps you are listed in the phone book. Maybe you have recently been mentioned in a local news article. All of these things are part of your personal brand. It’s already out there and you can’t do anything about it. What you CAN do is manage your personal brand so what people see about you is what you WANT them to see.

Personal branding was popularized by an article by Tom Peters first published in Fast Company Magazine (”A Brand Called You") over 10 years ago. He starts out the article by writing, “Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.”

In her highly interactive and productive workshop, our speaker, Dr. Andrea Zintz, will address the following:
• What is a Personal Brand? — understand the critical importance of personal branding.
• Default Brand—an honest evaluation of how others perceive you. Examine how this may be different from how you would like to be perceived.
• Discover your distinct contribution, your unique value and talent.
• Personal Brand Commitment—what would you like to be known for? How this is the foundation for managing your brand.

Princeton University’s Summer Internship Fair 2/17/12

Friday, February 17, 2012 - 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Organized by: Career Services at Princeton University

Princeton University's 8th Annual Summer Internship Fair will be held on Friday, February 17th from 1-4 pm in the Dillon Gymnasium. (Please note: this is the first year moving to a larger campus venue, so they will be able to accommodate more employers this year than in years past.)

Princeton’s Summer Internship Fair is an annual event held by the Office of Career Services which brings potential internship employers and Princeton students together on campus. This event has successfully helped employers connect directly with students and increase visibility of their organization, while students have benefited from learning about unique summer opportunities.

Oral History Project

The Committee on Princetoniana recently honored Tom Swift '76 and the PA3 for their work on the Oral History Project.  You can view the resolution passed by the committee here.

The following write up on the project appeared in the Regional Roar, The Newsletter of the Committee on Regional Associations, in the Late Fall 2011 edition.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Oral History Project sponsored by the Princetoniana Committee was started in 2006 and consists of oral history interviews undertaken by alumni to capture Princeton’s history from Old Guard alumni, early alumnae, and others with significant Princeton connections and perspectives.

The interviews are free-form but do use a topic guide of questions that focuses on the interviewee’s experiences at Princeton, and they typically last about an hour and are audio-recorded. They are then transcribed, and the transcripts and recordings are entered into the University Archives at Mudd Library (and can generally be found online). To date, approximately 40 interviews have entered the archive.

The Princetoniana Committee is looking for volunteer interviewers to support this wonderful initiative in capturing histories of Princeton and its historical intersections.

The committee has found that regions conducting an “Interview Fest” in a central location can be quite successful. By offering refreshments and providing recording equipment and interview guides in a wheelchair-accessible location, local alumni (both interviewers and interviewees) are more likely to volunteer, and great progress can be made. To that end, the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) has built a process to find and train volunteer interviewers, and they have acquired a pool of ten recorders that can be made available to any region wanting to conduct local interviews.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Excerpts from interviews can be found here.
