Matt Welton (Alum) from Adidas Speaks to Business Students

Matt Welton, Director of Talent Acquisition at Adidas spoke to business students last week. Approximately 150 students actively participated in the discussion about developing effective job seeking skills. One surprising finding is that more companies are looking for persuasive narratives from students who can provide examples of how they overcame adversities.  Companies are beginning to value this kind of resilience since it demonstrates that students will be able to persist in solving more vexing problems.
