Alumni

We are always delighted to hear from alumni! We’ve come to know many of you and like to follow your stories, whether you’re happy in the direction you’ve chosen or are in the midst of a transition. Or it may be that you were so engaged in your Amherst life when on campus that it was difficult to think actively about life post-Amherst and you are just now coming to it.

That’s not a problem—alumni have full access to our resources, both online and personal, and we are happy to work with you where you are now. We can do in-person, telephone or Skype/Zoom appointments, and offer tools to help with self-exploration, job postings, and more.

If you’d like to get in touch for any reason, large or small, simply call (413) 542-2265 or email (careers@amherst.edu) and tell us you are an alumnus/a and would like to speak with an advisor. Don’t hesitate to reach out—we are ready to help and would love to talk with you.
