    Admissions

    I worked at Hamilton College - New York

    Pros

    The Admissions office is full of good people with a common goal--to provide students access to quality education. All of my experiences were very positive.

    Cons

    One of the biggest issues is ultimately the location. Located in Clinton, NY, it can be hard for a young professional to make social and professional connections outside of the quiet town.

    I have been working at Hamilton College - New York part-time

    Pros

    Plenty of on-campus jobs, easy to fit into your class schedule. Certain positions offer internship programs your senior year, which look great on a resume when you're trying to get a real-world job.

    Cons

    Most jobs are barely above minimum wage, and dont really offer any opportunities to make more money. Also hamilton enforces a strict 20 hour per week maximum per student employee

    I have been working at Hamilton College - New York as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The community is small, tight knit, lots of town traditions, and perks for working with the college. You'll meet lots of influential people and inspiring students. Work is meaningful with lots of freedom to have a work life balance.

    Cons

    The college is very slow to change. They like reinventing the wheel when it comes to IT and tech platforms. It can be frustrating and challenging when your work must be done on a homegrown system.
