CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 5th, 2012

Quintiles Early Talent Internship Program celebrates unprecedented success in 2012 by hosting over 430 talented students globally, almost double the number of interns in 2011.

Recently, Quintiles business leaders from the company’s headquarters in North Carolina led two informational sessions with students at UNC-Chapel Hill. As part of an on-going strategy for the Quintiles Early Talent Program, the company regularly organizes interactive events at select universities in order to attract future intern, entry level and specialized knowledge candidates. Quintiles representatives explain why the organization is a great place to work why it continues to be the industry leader. The thoughtful insights provided at both recent events are exemplary of how Quintiles leaders are dedicated to giving back to their schools, the community, and staffing Quintiles with quality talent.

On Thursday, Oct. 4th, Eric Faulkner, Director of Global Market Access, joined Melissa Hopkins, Director of Global Talent, at The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health (GSGPH) to present to students. Faulkner is an alumnus of GSGPH and currently works as an Assistant Professor at UNC’s School of Pharmacy while concurrently active in Quintiles Consulting division. Faulkner shared insight with the students about how his education transferred to the clinical research industry and spoke about what it’s like to work in the consulting division at the world’s leading clinical research company. Bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral students asked questions about the future of medicine and what the emerging trends in public health look like. Hopkins followed with details on the Quintiles Early Talent Program, emphasizing the Internship aspect.

On Friday, Oct. 5th, UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA Healthcare Club students visited Quintiles headquarters where organization leaders and previous school alumni Dustin Gross, Alyssa Kishore-Williams, and Todd Kasper led an interactive panel. Each leader brought a unique perspective on how to make sense of Quintiles mission in healthcare. Hopkins followed up with a reprise of her Early Talent pitch conducted at GSGPH. Student questions spanned many topics, including an inquiry about the culture at Quintiles.
