#HIRED: Helena Thatcher ‘18

After graduating, Helena will begin working as a Consulting Analyst for Fidelity Investments in Boston, Massachusetts.

“I’m excited to work closely with a team of people focused on answering questions and solving problems in a condensed time frame, like I have been doing on the Block Plan for the past 4 years. I’m also looking forward to gaining greater knowledge of the systemic issues, political policies, and individual challenges that impact American’s ability to save money for the lives they want to have.

My advice for those finding opportunities is to try not to fear networking! For every hour I spent filling out job applications, I probably spent 3 hours emailing recent CC graduates, getting coffee with people in the field I wanted to pursue, and having informational interviews. It can be really tiring, but the relationships I made enabled me get the job I wanted.”

Congratulations, Helena! We’re proud of you!
