Description

Reinventing Your Career To Drive Social Impact

Inertia is a concept just as real in an individual's professional life as it is in his or her physical one. It is for this reason that some of us get stuck on a professional trajectory early on in our careers and are unable to change course, despite our passions and best intentions. We can find ourselves thinking back on earlier dreams of graduating college and changing the world, only to feel uninspired by what we're doing now. So how do we "reboot"? How can we make a change in our lives or careers to drive social impact without a seismic shift in our lifestyle? And what tools can assist us in making that transition?

On April 3, 2017, at 6:00pm, at the Princeton Club of New York (15 W 43rd St, btwn 5th and 6th Aves), come hear your fellow Tigers discuss how they made strategic career choices to advance social impact causes.

Co-Sponsored by the Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC) and the Princeton Club of NYC
