Brianne LaBare

Peer Career Advisor

Hi Everyone! My name is Brianne LaBare, and I am a junior originally from Orlando, Florida majoring in LJST and English.

During my time at Amherst, I’ve undertaken a variety of roles on campus. I have worked with the former Student Activities Department as a Project Manager and have since transitioned into my current position as a Peer Career Advisor. Additionally, I’ve been actively involved in campus publications since my first semester at Amherst, contributing to The Amherst Student as a Managing Design Editor and overseeing deadlines as the editor-in-chief of the Olio.

Being a first-generation, low-income student has made me keenly aware of the challenges and disadvantages that many students like myself encounter when seeking essential career resources. Nevertheless, I view this unique perspective as an opportunity to serve as a guiding beacon for those navigating the complexities of forging their own career paths.

With this in mind, I eagerly anticipate assisting students from all corners of the campus on their career journeys. Whether you’re starting your resume from scratch or need to incorporate your most recent internship or job experience, I’m here to lend a helping hand!
