Alumni-in-Residence

You have questions. They have answers.

Spend time with alumni this semester. The Loeb Center’s series of candid career conversations will help you explore possibilities, build relationships, and get real-world advice.

There are a variety of ways students can participate:

  • Workshops: Learn skills or explore topics within the alum’s chosen career field
  • Office hours appointments: Sign up in advance to ask questions and get tailored advice in a one-on-one setting
  • Informal group conversation about career paths post-Amherst
  • And more!

Contact the Loeb Center at careers@amherst.edu or (413) 542-2265 with any questions or accessibility needs.

Community will have Alumni in Residence widget showing People, Events & Experiences to show past programming
