Join Our Team

We recruit for a variety of positions on the team.  In the fall, we recruit for our Summer Intern program, and in the spring, our Sustainability Intern is selected in conjunction with the Sustainability Office.  If you'd like to experience the thrill of working for your alma mater while simultaneously getting a master class in investing, these internships are for you! We partner with some of the world’s best asset managers across the investment landscape - from public equity to venture capital, renewable energy to distressed debt - and our small, collaborative team means you will be put to work on projects that impact our investment strategy and the portfolio.  Responsibilities include quantitative and qualitative research and analysis related to investment managers, asset classes, portfolio management, asset allocation, risk management, and macro-economics. No investment experience required. Just bring curiosity, enthusiasm, and a love for the College!

This program is funded through the generosity of Amherst alum, Drew Shilling ’89. “The Investment Management industry can be difficult for undergraduates to break into because employers often are looking for demonstrated interest in the financial markets or previous industry experience. Even a summer internship can move a candidate’s resume to the top of the recruitment pile,” says Shilling. “I am very pleased to help underwrite the efforts of the Amherst Investment Office in providing relevant experience to interested students. These positions will help students and graduates determine whether they have a passion for the markets and investing and will also provide them with relevant experience should they decide to pursue a full-time position in the industry.”

Since the program’s inception in 2009, nearly 30 students have interned with the Investment Office. Interns typically depart as graduating seniors, often moving on to professional work in consulting, banking, law, and investment management. Recent professional destinations include Vista, Bain, Putnam, Lazard, and many more; recent academic destinations include Harvard Law School.
