Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. - MLK, Jr. What do you like to do in your free time? When I'm not working or spending quality time with my children, I enjoy playing basketball and gardening. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? Cisco is like a well-funded start-up with insanely smart people, everywhere! In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Cisco employees are engaged with team activities, giving back and other social activities.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet.
