Deloitte:Olympic and Paralympic Heroes on 10-Stop College Tour
September 4, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
Several world-class athletes are teaming with Deloitte on a 10-stop national campus tour to encourage students to ‘go for the gold™’ in all aspects of life, especially their future careers. Deloitte is joining forces with Olympic and Paralympic athletes to present “It’s Your Race, Take the Lead!” During the month-long tour nine athletes, including 2012 Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach (soccer), 2012 Olympic silver medalist Cullen Jones (swimming), 2012 Olympian and two-time gold medalist Mariel Zagunis (fencing), 2012 Olympian Jonathan Horton (gymnastics) and 2012 Paralympian April Holmes (track & field) will share their personal journeys to success.
Diane Borhani, Deloitte’s U.S. campus recruiting leader commented:
“This is the third year we are touring campuses with inspirational athletes, and each time we’ve done it, the students have consistently expressed how motivating their stories are,” she said. “These students see the parallels between athletic achievement and career success and they have a better understanding of how important it is to find the right fit with an employer who is going to encourage and challenge them to ‘take the lead’ once they graduate.”
Students will also have the chance to network and discuss post-graduation career opportunities one-on-one with Deloitte leaders and recruiters.
The “It’s Your Race, Take the Lead” campus tour is one of many ways Deloitte engages future leaders and offers them a glimpse of the organization’s culture. Others include the annual Deloitte National Leadership Conference where, each summer, students hone leadership skills in career development workshops. This past July, nearly 400 students participated in the conference, which was held at Deloitte University in Westlake, Texas. Additionally, Deloitte’s alternative spring break program, which is presented in collaboration with United Way and Teach for America, allows college students to volunteer their skills in hard-hit communities during their spring vacations. The program is so popular that last year Deloitte received nearly 1,600 applications for the approximately 80 coveted spots.
