Amherst Career Network
The Amherst Alumni Directory connects you, the student, with alumni who are eager and willing to share their experiences and expertise. They can provide very specific information on particular careers and career paths and/or offer general career advice.
The type of guidance will vary with each individual: for example, some will offer informational interviews, others might offer a shadowing opportunity. While internships and specific job opportunities may arise naturally from your encounters, the Amherst Career Network is NOT intended as a job search tool.
Many Amherst alumni are also represented on Linked so you may wish to explore that site as well.
