Internship and Job Postings
Hamilton College utilizes an online job posting and college recruiting system, HamNET, accessible to students 24/7. Once you have registered, you can populate the system with a description of your organization, a position description, contact information, application requirements, and deadline. After students submit their materials via HamNET, the materials are then delivered to you electronically.
If you seek to hire recent graduates or experienced candidates, please contact Abby Taylor, Director of Employer Relations about ways to connect with alumni. We send periodic job-related messages to alumni, and also post positions on the Hamilton College Community Group’s Job Board on LinkedIn.
(Information Table, Information Session and Interviewing)
Numerous employers come to Hamilton each academic year to conduct information sessions and/or interview students on site. This is the best opportunity to meet with the most Hamilton students. On-campus recruiting generally begins mid-September. Please contact Abby Taylor, Director of Employer Relations to schedule your on-campus visit.
Students are notified of employer visits and opportunities through several avenues. The Career Center publishes an "InsideTrack" flyer Monday through Friday, advertising upcoming employer visits and approaching deadlines. In addition, targeted emails are sent to students who have expressed interest in a particular career field. We are happy to distribute posters or other materials that the employer provides. Employers may also purchase an ad in the school newspaper, The Spectator, by emailing email@example.com or calling 315-859-4100.
Video Conference or Skype Interviews
Hamilton offers the use of its video-conferencing facility as an interview venue. Employers can use this facility when on campus to interview students who are abroad, or students can interview with employers located in their home office. Employers may also choose to interview students via Skype.
Off-Campus Recruiting Consortia
Each year, Hamilton participates in one day interviewing events with a group of prominent Northeastern liberal arts colleges. Employers in Boston and New York City find these events to be an efficient and cost-effective way to attract pre-screened candidates to their offices. The recruiting program in Boston takes place in November and New York in March. Coordination of these events occurs at different schools each year, so contact us for current information.
Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN)
Hamilton College is a founding member of this consortium of highly-selective liberal arts colleges. LACN provides a job and internship listing service that gives employers the opportunity to reach over 60,000 students at 35 highly selective, small, private, liberal arts colleges with just one posting. This option is free.
