Last year the Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) in conjunction with Princeton Career Services hosted a "Careers Seminar and Reception" for undergraduates who were spending the summer at Princeton. Over 50 students and alumni spent quality time discussing options for careers after Princeton. This year the PA3 is teaming with Satomi Chudasama at Career Services to do it again. Over 70 undergrad and grad students have signed up for the event!
Location: Princeton University, Carl A. Fields Center, 58 Prospect Avenue
Date: June 20 (Mon.) 5:30-7:30 PM
What: 10-15 Alumni Panelists needed
Careers: Consulting, Education, Finance, Law, Marketing, Architecture, urban-planning, Medicine/Healthcare, Non-Profits, Volunteerism, Science & Technology, the Arts and more
The event will feature roundtables of alumni from various fields, sharing their insights on how Princeton has prepared them for career options, success, and transitions. Our aim is to break into small groups by industry. The goal is to provoke broad discussions about the vast career choices available to students after Princeton and to exposue students to the diversity of people in them.
What’s in it for alumni?
· Perhaps you can recall when you were a student and how clueless you were about the decisions you were making and the careers you didn’t know about
· Perhaps you have a son or daughter in college
· Perhaps you have an interesting story to tell about your own career path
· Perhaps you are in career interruptus, but are nonetheless quite active
Satomi Chudasama, Kyriaki (Kiki) Karoglou *05 (Chair of PA3 Networking and Careers Committee) and I would like to invite each of you to join the discussion and remain afterwards for our reception. Please let me know if you can be available for this event. Many thanks in advance for your participation.

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni. On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton. As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.
This month's lunch features Cate Reilly, Grad Student in the Comparative Literature Department.
Cate will discuss "Rilke and Chekhov: Translation and (Play)giarism" .
Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) is the little-known first translator of any of Anton Chekhov's dramatic works into the German language. Rilke's contact with the Russian poet Sophia Schill allowed him to obtain handwritten transcriptions of Chekhov's plays, "The Seagull," (1896) and "Uncle Vanya" (1897). Although his translations have been lost, Rilke's understanding of Chekhov survives through his own version of "The Seagull," a short piece called, "Everyday Life." The play premiered in Berlin in 1901, and was later converted into a popular radio-drama in Fascist Germany.
Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required.
Looking forward to seeing you...in your orange and black!
Date: Friday, June 3rd, 2011
Time: 12 noon - 2pm
