Making a positive impact on someone’s life feels good - especially when that someone is a Hamilton student exploring how to transfer the valuable skills learned on the Hill to a meaningful and rewarding career path after graduation. Hamilton has a long history of connecting students with alumni and parents whose advice, expertise and resources allow talented young people to go on to achieve success for themselves and in their communities.
Become a part of our growing career networking community by logging in to My Hamilton, which replaces the former Alumni Directory. Begin by editing your profile and clicking on the volunteer tab indicate the ways in which you would like to volunteer (see screenshots below).
Once you have joined the Hamilton Career Network, your volunteer roles will be highlighted on your profile. Additionally, students will be able to perform an advanced search, and narrow their search by those who have offered to provide career advice or practice interviews to students.
Descriptions of the roles are listed below. For more information, please contact Abby Taylor, director of employer relations, at 315-859-4386 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether in the initial stages of career exploration or preparing for a job interview, students benefit tremendously from the expertise and advice of professionals. We are seeking alumni and parents willing to share such career-specific information with individual students by appointment and/or with groups of students in a presentation or informal networking session. Information can be shared in person or electronically via Skype or videoconferencing.
You might be the head of your organization, just starting out, or somewhere in between. Whether hosting a student for a shadowing opportunity, hiring an intern, coming to campus to interview students or putting us in touch with people at your organization who can, your assistance in providing opportunities to Hamilton students is extremely valuable.
Career exploration and development can often mean unanticipated expenses for students, sometimes forcing them to turn down opportunities that may provide little or no pay, but valuable experience. Your financial or practical assistance can make a difference to Hamilton students in the following ways:
Fund an unpaid or minimally paid summer internship opportunity
Provide funding or other assistance for related expenses
