What have our Beta Kappa alumni been doing? As you may already know, we have been featuring our members each week at their internships. We also want to highlight what our wonderful alumni are doing post graduation! This week we will begin our Alumni Spotlight series. One of our recent graduates, Candace Chen, got a job at PepsiCo as an Operations Manager. Candace graduated in Spring 2015 with a degree in International Business and Marketing. See what she has to say about her experience at PepsiCo. We can't wait for her to come back to share her experiences with all of us. Congratulations on all of your success, Candace!
"One month after graduation, I began my career with PepsiCo as an Operations Manager. I have been getting trained on operation tools and programs, strategies to improve efficiency, production equipments and processes, packaging and labor managements, and the company values. I still have two months of training before I officially go onboard, and so far, one thing that stood out to me is the importance of teamwork and leadership. Being a good leader for your team can make a huge positive impact. PepsiCo is a company that has more opportunities than you can ever imagine. Although I graduated with an International Business and Marketing degree, I saw the opportunity to join my dream company and held on to it. One piece of advice I can give to you is grab any opportunity you can, even if that means you have to step outside of your comfort zone. Seeing further with an open mind can surely help you succeed. Big thanks to PSE for providing me the network and giving me the opportunity to join PepsiCo."
