Student Spotlight – Daniel Schenkel: My Supply Chain Job Search Plan

Daniel Schenkel

What job did you accept?

I accepted an offer to join Caterpillars Leadership and Technical Development Program.

How did you utilize the UCSO?

My career coach helped me to fine-tune my resume, further my professionalism, and foster my ability to network and I was able to land an internship in Supply Chain during my sophomore year.

The UCSO has come to my aid on several occasions since my first internship. While studying abroad in Hong Kong, I realized I needed to begin recruiting again for summer internships. Again, I contacted the UCSO, within hours I was on Skype developing a game plan.

What was your job search plan?

For my second internship, I sought to find another supply chain position with a Fortune 500 company. Utilizing the interview and preparation skills that I had worked on with my career coach, I had an extremely successful phone interview and accepted an offer to intern with Caterpillar Inc.s Supply Chain Division. Without the quick and gracious support of the UCSO, I would not be in the position I am today.
