Peace Corps Information Table

Can't make tonight's Peace Corps information session? Stop by our information table in Keefe for a quick chat with East Region recruiter Adam Housh — who also served as a Volunteer in Armenia from 2012-15 — to learn more about the Peace Corps' mission, how its programs are structured, what service opportunities are currently available and how undergraduate students can successfully apply for them.

The Peace Corps is a service opportunity for motivated change-makers to immerse themselves in a community abroad, working side by side with local leaders to tackle the most pressing challenges of our generation. The agency's volunteer program is often called life-defining by the more than 220,000 Americans who have served.

Volunteers are offered the chance to fully integrate into a host country community, where they will live and work on projects ranging from education to business development. Volunteers receive a living allowance that allows them to live in a manner similar to the local people in that community. The Peace Corps also provides complete medical and dental care and covers the cost of transportation to and from that country of service.

Overall, the Peace Corps' mission is to promote world peace and friendship by fulfilling three goals:
– To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
– To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
– To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.

Full-Time & Internship Opportunities at Clarion Healthcare Consulting

Clarion Healthcare, a life sciences strategy consulting firm in downtown Boston, is seeking intellectually curious, highly analytical, team-oriented individuals eager to roll up their sleeves and help pharmaceutical and biotech clients address their most important strategic and organizational challenges.

The firm is now accepting applications for both full-time associate and summer 2018 internship positions, and and representatives will be holding interviews on campus early next month! A background in science and/or economics is not required, but a clear and demonstrated interest in the life sciences and/or healthcare is essential.

Working side-by-side with colleagues at all levels, associates and summer interns will sharpen quantitative skills through immediate exposure to a range of business problems. You’ll become closely familiar with the particular challenges faced by the life sciences industry, and you’ll learn the foundation of consulting — to identify both the right questions and the best answers — hands on.

Join representatives, including recent alum Shelton Cochran '16, to learn more about this firm and its open full-time associate and internship opportunities.
