Careers by Industry

Welcome to our ”Amherst Careers In” Program

It can be a challenge to gain meaningful exposure to real-world work experience and advice. Two questions we hear often are “Where do I start?” and “Who can I talk to?”

The answer to both questions is Amherst Careers In—industry-specific initiatives providing personalized career advising, focused skill-building workshops, opportunities for one-on-one interaction with alumni and potential employers, and experience-broadening internship, shadowing and trek options. Participating students gain practical professional skills necessary to compete successfully for industry-specific internships and jobs. 

For a sampling of the breadth of Amherst Careers In, check out the 2015 Government and Nonprofit trek to Washington, DC; the online resources available to you through Koru and the Harvard Business School; the Education treks and experiential experiences; and the growing entrepreneurship focus and presence at the College.
