Experiment

Try out your ideas. Take the information you’ve gathered about yourself and the wide world of work and test out your options.

There are many ways to Experiment:

  • Identify transferable skills that will make you more marketable and develop them through courses, extracurricular activities, and internships.
  • Peruse the internship sites on the Career Center website, such as Quest, Liberal Arts Career network (LACN), and InternshipsUSA (both linked from this page)
  • Participate in the Amherst Select Internship Program (ASIP) to gain access to internships hosted by Amherst College alumni, parents and friends of the College.
  • Learn about the funding available through the College for unpaid summer internships.
  • Visit the Center for Community Engagement to explore options for engaging in the local community and additional public service internships.
  • Create an opportunity to volunteer or intern while studying abroad.
  • Learn how to target your resume and cover letter for a specific opportunity.
  • Assume leadership roles on campus and in the local community.
