Networking for Introverts

Networking is a critical part of exploring different career paths, as well as searching for a job or internship: more than 70% of people are hired into their jobs because of networking. For many people, though, components of networking like attending large events, making small talk with strangers, or asking people for favors can feel overwhelming. If this sounds like you, this workshop is designed to help you develop strategies that make networking feel more approachable…and even exciting!

First Year Loeb Seminar: Finding Your Foundation

First year students, the Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning is part of your journey here at Amherst, from start to finish. We expect you to start your journey this fall through this fun and interactive workshop. You can get to know other first year students, identify your skills, understand how your values, culture and family influence your thinking about work and careers and also prepare for meaningful summer experiences such as internships, research, summer jobs, studying abroad, volunteering and more. R.S.V.P. required. Don’t miss out!

French Film Screening: "L'armée de l'ombre" (1969)

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm King Hall, French House Common Room

This war drama, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, is an adaptation of the book by Joseph Kessel. This film paints an understated, unglamorous portrait of the French Resistance during World World II. Betrayed by an informant, Philippe Gerbier (Lino Ventura), a Resistance fighter, finds himself trapped in a torturous Nazi prison camp. Though Gerbier escapes to rejoin the Resistance in occupied Marseilles and exacts his revenge on the informant, he must continue a quiet, seemingly endless battle against the Nazis in an atmosphere of tension, paranoia and distrust.

French with English subtitles. Refreshments will be served.
