We can meet with you in person, by phone or Skype, or during our walk-in hours on Wednesdays from 2:00-4:00. Use our online appointment scheduler to set up an individual appointment.

As a student, you already have an account that you can begin using immediately. Customize your job search, receive email alerts, and more. From HampLink you can also connect to the Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN) and the Nationwide Internships Consortium (NIC). Check all three databases for paid internships, fellowships, and entry-level jobs.
