Diversity Career Day 2020
Diversity Career Day co-hosted by Amherst College and Williams College.

Please join us for the first-ever virtual Diversity Career Day Meetup, co-hosted by Amherst College and Williams College on Wednesday, October 21, 2020. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with organizations that offer jobs and internship programs that are actively seeking diverse student applicants.

Come meet with employers that offer strong diversity initiatives, and take advantage of this chance to meet “face-to-face” with as many employers as possible. View and search the current and growing list of participating organizations. Registration is now open in Handshake!

Both Amherst and Williams are dedicated to supporting the professional development and success of our talented and diverse student populations. Our schools are coming together to invest in building sustained relationships with organizations that prioritize diversity recruitment and building equitable, supportive company cultures. We intend for Diversity Career Day to allow you to make important contacts, gain exposure to high quality job opportunities, and think critically about professional environments that can help you thrive. 

We are excited to launch this new event, and hope you will join us!

Bringing Your Whole Self to Work — Amherst and Williams Alumni Share Experiences and Advice

Amherst and Williams Colleges have partnered to present our inaugural Diversity Career Day on Wednesday, October 21. Following the virtual afternoon Meetup between employers and students, please join us at 7:00pm EDT for this alumni panel discussion on the topic of "Bringing Your Whole Self to Work."

In this discussion, student moderators Jeremy Thomas (Amherst ‘21) and Essence Perry (Williams '22) will invite alums from both schools to share experiences from their own career paths, as well as advice for current students. This event is open to all, but primarily targeted towards current students who are navigating the job search, hiring process, and entry into the workplace as diverse candidates and hires.
