Intel Volunteer Andre House

Nothing like a Sunday dinner service to support your local homeless community. Slicing and dicing bread, buttering up each side. No better feeling in this world than helping those less fortunate than yourself. I mean, what is the alternative? Let’s see here…watch Netflix, go shopping, swim at the pool, or sleep. All of which sound particularly inefficient and boring.

I appreciate it when a company as big as Intel provides these types of service events. It gives me motivation to get out of the house and join my coworkers on a weekend afternoon. However, the real thanks goes to the individuals who sponsor and put on these events. Without them this would not be possible. Intel is a large Mothership, and the people make up the whole. Leaders rise to the occasion and help facilitate the get-togethers. After all, companies do not determine what type of person people are, but people determine what type of company they want to work for and how it is perceived by the general community.

I personally want to work for a company that helps make the world a better place. Call it the “basic millennial thought process.” I put in the effort to make this happen.

Employee Events- The Game Changer

Working for a Fortune 100 (#51) company has been amazing. The perks offered are off the charts. The amount of resources provided could make you spoiled. One thing I appreciate most about Intel is the number of Finance get-togethers. You can tell that they truly care about their employees.

As pictured above, I had the opportunity to sit down with fellow coworkers one night and enjoy a bbq. It is pleasant experience to let your mind relax from work for one night and talk about “normal” things with others. Plus, having blow-up slides and corn hole for the kiddos is also wonderful. It allows for people of all different walks of life to come together at a specific point in time and share something common: food and games.

I am excited for the future and cannot wait for what I will bring to Intel in the near future. Cheers!

Future Supply Chain Leaders

What an honor it is to be a part of the inaugural Future Supply Chain Leaders program this year at Oracle. Throughout the Modern Supply Chain Experience conference, I met so many amazing and brilliant individuals. The students I met where thrilled to be attending a supply chain conference, and their passion showed. There were 15 schools represented, with over 90 students in attendance. I cannot wait to see where these two numbers progress to in years to come.

Oh, and by the way, Go Utes!
