The Amherst Student Intro Meeting

Want to learn more about Amherst College’s only newspaper? We are a staff of 20+ reporters, editors, designers, photographers, digital managers and publishers. Every week, we work in the newsroom on Tuesdays to put out the paper, both print and online, on Wednesday. In recent years, we have broken news on hate incidents on campus, higher tenure rates among faculty of color, underutilized funding, gender disparities in athletics, student protests including Amherst Uprising in 2015, Hampshire’s financial crisis and more. Our content has been cited in publications such as The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Now This News. Our staffers have gone on to earn internships and/or full-time positions at The New York Times, The Atlantic, Stars and Stripes, Politico, Forbes and the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
The paper comprises four sections: news, opinion, arts and living, and sports. Writers are assigned articles to submit on Sunday/Monday depending on the section. Designers work on Tuesdays in the office to lay out pages using InDesign. Our photographers’ work is published every week, and we also started publishing editorial cartoons last year. Our digital managers man a robust social media presence while publishers handle finances and advertising.
At the intro meeting, you’ll get a chance to connect with editors and scope out different sections. There’s definitely room for anyone who wants to contribute, so we hope to see you there.
Please contact Shawna Chen at schen20@amherst.edu and Emma Swislow at eswislow20@amherst.edu with any questions or concerns.

Mock Case Consulting Interviews: Fall 2019

PRACTICE is the key to success in Case Interviews, whether preparing for consulting interviews, private equity or even asset management. It is important to practice your structure and communicating your thought process and proposed solution. These mock interviews are a great way to gain an understanding of your strengths and areas for improvement. Members of the class of 2020 who have successfully interviewed and landed full-time positions at consulting firms will be hosting one-hour mock interviews all day in the Loeb Center. Each interview will consist of a 45-minute fit/behavior + technical interview followed by a 15 minute feedback session, and will begin on the hour at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4 p.m.
Space is limited, so you should RSVP as soon as possible. If all spots are filled, there will be a waiting list created. Registration closes at 11:55 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11. Upon registering for the event, you will be redirected to a survey where you can indicate your first three time preferences. You will receive an email from Stephanie Hockman within 48 hours of the mock interviews with confirmation of your assigned time. You should plan to participate as if this is a real interview (dress, preparation, resumes in hand, etc).
