Amherst Select


The Career Center coordinates the Amherst Select Internship Program (Amherst Select), which features opportunities sponsored by alumni, parents and friends of Amherst College. Amherst Select is a program covering a broad and exciting range of internship opportunities in a variety of different fields and locations.

Students complete the qualifying steps and workshops during the fall semester, and once those steps are completed they have access to apply for these select summer internships during spring semester.  There are approximately 200 internships offered in the program, and we’re building new partnerships all the time with alumni and parents who wish to take on Amherst interns.  Amherst Select includes internships in the public and private sectors and appeals to students for the variety of available internships, the training they receive during the application process, and the connections they build with their alumni employers. Read more about the program on the Amherst Select homepage on the Career Center's website.
