Several students have complained about the career fairs hosted by Career Services, saying the fairs place an undue emphasis on computer science and finance.
Nicholas Porto ’15, an electrical engineering concentrator, said the internship fairs are very skewed toward computer science, while the career fairs in general, despite the occasional outlier, are more focused on finance and consulting.
Adam Klosowiak ’15, also an electrical engineering concentrator, said sometimes, even when the career fairs are targeted toward the humanities, recruiters still look for people with knowledge of computer software.
Career Services Executive Director Pulin Sanghvi explained that a lot of financial organizations have large budgets set aside for recruitment events, whereas for other companies, going to a recruiting fair could take a major chunk out of their budget.
49 out of 77 companies registered for February's "Summer Internship Career Fair" were in the financial or computer science industries, according to a Daily Princetonian review of the list of registered employers.

Edelstein explained that fecal transplants have been proven effective in fighting harmful intestinal bacteria, noting that while antibiotic treatments for the infection are approximately 80 percent effective, fecal matter transplantations, also known as FMTs, are around 89-92 percent effective.
Smith explained that the process of an FMT starts far before one heads into the surgical room, noting that an FMT is an extremely complicated process that first requires finding a donor to undergo a very rigorous set of screenings, come in and produce fecal material to be processed.

"We will pursue a strategy inspired by eHarmony, in which we actively capture evolving student interests and preferences, and then use that information to build relationships with the organizations they are most interested in, and create more informed matches," he said.
The University has investigated at least one serious medical case as a potential adverse reaction to the meningitis vaccine, although a link was deemed unlikely in that case.
An undergraduate student was sent to the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro less than 24 hours after receiving the vaccine with a condition ofrhabdomyolysis, an acute breakdown of muscle tissue that causes muscle fiber and protein to be transferred into the bloodstream, risking severe kidney damage.
Although the vaccine may have had a temporal correlation with the student getting rhabdomyolysis, specialists at University Health Services and the UMCPP said they do not believe the vaccine directly caused the condition.
There has been no past correlation between rhabdomyolysis and the meningitis vaccine in Europe and Australia, where the vaccine was approved for use.
Dr. Peter Johnsen, director of medical services at UHS, said that two specialists who observed the case both determined that the student’s illness was not related to the meningitis vaccine.
“We posed that question to specialists in the hospital and another specialist, and in both cases, they felt that it was not likely to be related,” Johnsen said.
