How I Got My First Job: Savannah Knell '10

I stressed over this plan until late April and worried about my fate even after I got my wooden cane, green apple pin, and Hamilton degree.

How I Got My First Job: Kate Hails '10

I decided to major in psychology at Hamilton because I was fascinated by the academic material.  When I declared my major as a sophomore, I didn't have any specific idea of how I might translate my academic training in psychology into a future career.  In fact, I had originally rejected the idea of pursuing a PhD in clinical psychology because I didn't think I was very interested in research and I thought the programs would be too competitive for me.  More ...

How I Got My First Job: Alex Ossola '10

Hamilton was a wonderful outlet for me during my four years; I tried all sorts of new things, grew personally as well as intellectually, and somewhere along the line stumbled across what I hope to be my future career path. But at the beginning of my senior year, I decided that I wanted to spend several years right out of college helping others before helping myself.  More ...
