From the President...
Dear Harvard Club of Wisconsin Community,
On behalf of the Board of the Harvard Club, I want to wish all of you and your families good health during this unprecedented time. As you can probably imagine, we are not going to be holding in-person events in the coming weeks. However, we are excited to tell you about several ways that you can connect with our Harvard alumni community—both in Wisconsin and across the country.
First, congratulations to the Harvard Class of 2020! While this year’s commencement will look different from those we experienced ourselves, it is still a cause for celebration, and the University is making a live-stream available of a ceremony where graduates will receive their degrees. Access more information here: https://www.harvard.edu/honoring-harvard-class-2020
If you are interested in supporting recent graduates in navigating the first steps of their professional careers, please take a look at these opportunities publicized by the Harvard Alumni Association:
- Crimson Careers: If your organization is hiring, has an internship opportunity, or a short-term project available, please post it on the Crimson Careers Job and Internship Database. Alumni can post openings for free and there is an option to promote remote work. Need help posting an opportunity? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Firsthand Advisers: The OCS Firsthand Advisers platform provides scheduling and connection tools to facilitate “flash mentoring.” Alumni can offer 30–60 minutes to engage in a mock interview, review a resume or CV, or have a career chat. Public service mentors are in particular demand. Need help registering? Email email@example.com.
Finally, we are excited to partner with the Harvard Club of San Francisco on the Harvard Across America Series, which is providing several lectures from Harvard professors on topics related to the COVID crisis, the economy, November’s election, and the American economy. To learn more about these “virtual” events go to the event listing on our website or click here to be directed to the Harvard Club of San Francisco website to learn more about the discussions, speakers, and to register.
We look forward to the time when we can connect again in-person and are grateful for your continued interest in our club and the Harvard alumni community.
