New program connects alumni and students
Alumni are invited to join the Amherst Career Network, an important new resource
for Amherst students and young alumni exploring careers. The network is not a
job-search tool; rather, it is an opportunity for students and alumni to arrange
informal conversations about career paths and for students to receive support
and information. Though primarily a networking vehicle, it also may offer students
the chance to set up shadowing opportunities and short- or long-term internships.
To sign up, alumni volunteers provide their educational background, current employment,
career path and preferred method of contact. The commitment is completely flexible\alumni
can add or remove their information at any time.
The Amherst Career Network provides its members a way to give something back
to the Amherst community and an opportunity to talk with students about their
experiences. For more information or to sign up, visit the Amherst Career Network.
