Challenge Seattle is partnering with DiscoverU to promote career and college exploration for students in the region. We are enthusiastically supporting this effort by opening the doors of our member companies and organizations to students, hosting tours and creating hands-on opportunities to experience the exciting careers available throughout the Puget Sound region. CEOs and employees from Challenge Seattle will also visit classrooms to share their personal career path stories and the role of education in their lives. Collectively, we want to share a clear message with all students in the region—there are great jobs here in Washington and we want to hire Washington students.
In this video, some of the region’s leading executives, such as Satya Nadella from Microsoft and Sue Desmond-Hellmann from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, discussed their personal pathways to their careers and even offered advice to current students on how to land their dream job or career. This video was made possible by Challenge Seattle in partnership with the Road Map Project, special thanks to Zillow Group for making this video production possible!
