We know it’s a difficult time to be a student—the pandemic is disrupting all aspects of life, and the challenging economy is impacting job and internship experiences. We thought 2008 grads who graduated from Amherst during the Great Recession could relate. In this pop-up series your questions will take center stage. Join us as we:
--learn about the challenges 2008 grads faced in early career experiences
--explore how they’re navigating work during the pandemic
--and get industry-specific considerations for what’s ahead
Our first 2008 alum guest is Anne-Claire (Ace) Roesch, Senior Manager at Deloitte Consulting. Check out her alumni directory and LinkedIn profiles. (They are in the Handshake event linked below.)

To celebrate our digital Pride Week, the QRC is sharing Our Stories! Our Stories is a project designed to allow the community to come together and celebrate one another through what we hold most valuable. With everyone at home, we thought what better way to come together than Instagram! We will be accepting submissions through prompts on a linked Google Form that will allow you to tell us about yourself, as well as pictures that you feel best represent your responses. Plus, a lucky few will be featured on our Instagram and can expect a surprise thank you in the mail! All of the prompts are up to interpretation, and you are welcome to respond to any one or more of them, so have fun with your answers! Thank you for your continued support of the QRC, and we can’t wait to learn more about the Amherst community. For any additional questions or concerns, please contact Director Jxhn Martin at email@example.com.
*folks who choose to do a submission can win something! (swag bag, tote bag, t-shirt, etc)
