A Day in the Life job shadowing program is a one-day experience during winter and/or spring break that gives sponsors the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on a student’s career by offering a window into their world of work.
Internship and Job Postings
Hamilton College utilizes an online job posting and college recruiting system, Handshake, 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 Handshake, the materials are then delivered to you electronically.
(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 Cheney Cronin, Assistant Director of Employer Relations (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule your on-campus visit. Virtual and Skype interviews are also an option if you are unable to travel to campus.
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 Eastern College Career Days 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.
