First Quarter - Career Questions

Welcome to the Class of 2001's 10th Reunion Survey. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey, which will help our class create a snapshot of our collective lives and identities 10 years after we passed through the FitzRandolph Gates. It is not possible to save your answers and return to the survey once you begin, so please make sure you have 20-30 minutes available before you begin.

In keeping with our football theme, this survey is broken into four (unequal) Quarters:
1st Quarter - Career Trends and Work-Life Decisions: A series of questions written by the Alumni Council Careers Committee and used in all class surveys to create an alumni-wide database on careers
2nd Quarter - A Glimpse of Life 10 Years Out
3rd Quarter - Reflections on Our Princeton Years
4th Quarter - Predicting our 25th: An opportunity to look ahead

All responses to this survey are anonymous. No personally identifying information is being collected. For the 4th Quarter, you’ll have the opportunity to provide a separate e-mailed response with your name attached.

Thank you again for giving your time to complete this survey, and see you at the 10th!
