Your STEM expertise is a highly valuable asset — one that companies large and small are actively investing in, no matter their core business.

These days, organizations need to find and retain top talent who can identify emerging trends to propel the business forward. They also need to position themselves as desirable workplaces that foster creativity and innovation. In a new webinar series, “A Recruiter’s Perspective,” you’ll have the chance to hear from companies on why they’re recruiting talented STEM professionals like you. You’ll also get a glimpse of how your expertise is vital to many industries, some of which you’d never associate with needing your unique skills.

Our first featured partner: PepsiCo. In order to retain its position as a leading global food and beverage c­ompany, PepsiCo needs to attract people who are proficient in science, technology, engineering and math. Specifically, the company takes a creative approach to recruiting top talent in the areas of data science and research and development.

During this one-hour webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of PepsiCo employees and talent acquisition executives on the following topics:

  1. How PepsiCo goes about identifying talent from diverse STEM disciplines
  2. How their STEM-proficient workforce identifies emerging scientific trends and influences the corporation’s innovative efforts
  3. What the corporate culture is like at PepsiCo, and why the company encourages their employees to continue to cultivate their skills
  4. How YOU can communicate your skills and show how they align with recruiters’ objectives
