A recent Christian Science Monitor article focused on a unique networking program offered by colleges to alumni highlighted Hamilton. The article "Universities try innovative ways to get grads jobs" examined "speed-networking," an evening for alumni from NESCAC colleges during which participants are matched with others who share their stated interests. Each participant spends six minutes with 12 other individuals. The somewhat dizzying experience removes the potential awkwardness of typical networking events.

Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Paul Ryan was quoted as saying “Our alumni have asked for more career support. They had plenty when they were seniors or juniors with us. But when they graduate and enter the workforce, they don’t have a career center to walk to anymore."

The article also addressed Hamilton's HALT program, the Hamilton Alumni Leadership Training program to which approximately 50 seniors apply each year.
