Thyaeba Abdul Rasheed, a current Quinsigamond Community College student working on her Computer Information System (CIS) Database Certificate, was recently hired at The Hanover Insurance Group as a Commercial Lines Rater. Rasheed will be quoting premium for large businesses requiring insurance. Rasheed stated, “During the Rater training, the Hanover training staff has been very supportive and welcoming, helping me as a trainee grow professionally. Even though the company is large, they treat you and work with you on an individual level.”  Rasheed said she is particularly impressed with the work culture at The Hanover Insurance Group which she described as a positive work environment embracing diversity from all cultures.

Starting in May 2016, The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc., in partnership with Randstad Corporate Services, was actively seeking employees through on-campus recruitment events with QCC’s Student and Employment Transfer Center (SETC). Candidates selected for this position begin a very comprehensive 6-month training program, and this job requires a detail orientated person with analytical skills and extensive knowledge of MS Office.

Lindsey Fontana, Account Manager with Randstad Corporate Services stated, “I think the QCC on- campus recruitment events have been a great success. We will continue our recruitment endeavors at the College because of the availability of a highly talented pool of hard working and well trained QCC students.” Rasheed noted, “The education I gained at QCC is the key to my success, and as I move forward it will continue to help me.” Randstad considered many strong candidates from QCC for The Hanover Insurance Group position, so QCC is quite proud of Rasheed attaining her new career.

The Hanover Insurance Group is one of the largest property and casualty insurance companies in the country and has a rich history of providing insurance protection for individuals, families and businesses for more than 160 years.

Randstad has committed to QCC campus recruiting approximately every three months. SETC was thrilled when Randstad contacted them about recruiting on the campus, and Fontana was thrilled working with the SETC office: “The staff at QCC’s SETC were very accommodating and generous. We all really enjoyed the event and are looking forward to continuing our partnership with continual recruitment at QCC!”
