Amherst College Photos
I have been working at Amherst College part-time (Less than a year)
I'm a grader and a tutor for economics department here. Very flexible hours, a lot of guidance, and very decent salary. I have also worked as Facilities during the summer, and also in the alumni programs. It's a very good opportunity for me to talk to the Alums and hear their stories.
Might be tough to balance academic load and doing these jobs, and also balancing all other aspects as a student. But having said that, the flexibility given helps a lot. Sometimes it may be daunting to talk to an Alum, but all you need is some practice and courage! Academic departments are sometimes not too supportive of our efforts to seek out jobs in the real world.
Advice to Management
Probably more guidance would help. The College is trying their best to connect students to alums, but I feel more opportunities to connect and talk to them wouldn't hurt. The academic departments also could have been more supportive of these attempts.
