Introduction to Networking — Hosted by the Loeb Center's Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program

What do you think of when you imagine networking? Networking is a catch-all term for making and sustaining connections over time. How can you imagine making connections in an authentic way that contributes to your career exploration and growth?

In this virtual workshop, learn about cultivating personal relationships, re-activating past connections, engaging in your field through news and social media communities, and more. At the end of this workshop, you will identify five different ways you can begin networking that align with you and your interests.

Note: This workshop will fulfill the Internship Preparation Workshop requirement for the Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program. Learn more about the Program here: https://www.amherst.edu/mm/575805

Loeb.NYC Entrepreneurial Internship Information Session

Startup studio Loeb.NYC is continuing its commitment to entrepreneurial internships in NYC. Michael Loeb ’77, P’21 (serial entrepreneur, founder of Loeb Enterprises/Loeb.NYC, and co-founder of Priceline), along with his business partner Rich Vogel, have collaborated to bring you the Loeb.NYC Summer Internship Program for the fourth year in a row.

Loeb.NYC's 10-week internship program provides training and first-hand NYC startup experience to approximately forty bright undergraduate students with an enthusiasm for business and innovation. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to learn about entrepreneurship and make a difference at a startup. Attend this information session to learn more about the internship program and how to successfully apply to be part of the Summer 2021 cohort!

The internship kicks off in early June, when interns join Michael and Rich at Michael’s Southampton house (if you’ve seen Billions on Showtime, it’s that Hampton house), where they are immersed in a one-day training program. The next day, the CEOs of the startup companies selected for the summer program pitch their businesses and summer projects to the interns. After individual meetings between the startups and the students, each intern is matched with a company that closely fits their skills and interests. To ensure this program is a success for interns and companies, company CEOs create defined assignments with meaningful work and oversight.

The internship program is supportive and comprehensive. Each intern receives a subject matter introduction to business and entrepreneurship, obtains support throughout the 10-weeks, and is provided with resources enabling them to succeed. Every week, interns visit the Loeb.NYC home office for our version of an evening 'Ted Talk' featuring world class entrepreneurs discussing, well, just about anything they want to. In addition, interns participate in a weekly roundtable where progress is reviewed and concerns discussed.

NOTE: This internship offered through the Loeb Center's Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program. Learn more about the Program at https://www.amherst.edu/mm/575805
