Tuesday, July 28, 2020 | 5:00 p.m. PT

This session will focus on Don’s experiences from being a WSU Carson College of Business Graduate in 1987 and the jobs he has worked culminating in his 18 year career with Microsoft.  This session would be valuable for a recent graduate or any graduate that has an interest in looking at a career in B2B Account Management and what that looks like at a Fortune 500 Company.  Don will also discuss skills employers would be looking for with our new normal.  Things like self-starter, on the job learning, collaborator, team player, ability to adapt, good work ethic, high morals/ethics are all traits being needed both at an office or working from home.
