Testimonials

“QUIC was a defining part of my experience at Queen’s and my career. It is one of the reasons I decided to come to Queen’s and is part of what made it so special. The defining attribute of QUIC is its people: my room mates in NY were from QUIC; the first person I called when I was deciding to leave Facebook was my mentor from QUIC. It’s a very fulfilling experience to watch the organization continue to grow and improve with each passing year – I’m very proud to be an alumnus!”

“QUIC has played an important role in my professional development. Before I went through my third year internship interviews, several QUIC alumni helped me prepare by mock interviewing me.  Two years out of school, I wanted to leave Goldman and the QUIC alumni network was there to help me make the transition and find my next job. I’m seven years out of school now and the QUIC network continues to be very valuable to me. I am consistently amazed at how willing QUIC alum are to give me career advice.” Andrew Iu

“QUIC provided me with many marketable skills, acting as a launchpad for my future career. Specifically, the ability to analyze investments, synthesize recommendations, and deliver effective presentations. It also taught me to take a wider interest in the business world around me, encouraging me to follow the economy, industries, companies, etc. Most importantly, it introduced me to a network of like-minded classmates and friends – many of whom I am still in touch with almost a decade later!”    Laura Heaphy
