USAA is making a lasting professional development impact on current SITC students through mock interviews, resume review sessions, and Zoom interest meetings as they work to help students prepare for future careers – some of whom will go on to work for their company in the near future. ACU and COBA have appreciated the partnership with the employer and see USAA’s core values of service, loyalty, honesty, and integrity as a natural fit with the focus the university has on developing and sending servant- based leaders to honor God and bless the world.
USAA kicked off their yearly visit to the campus on Tuesday, September 15 with a Zoom information meeting hosted by Rebekah Lee, the Recruiting Lead at USAA. Lee told students about the impactful work that the company is doing through its focus on serving members of the military and their families. Throughout the information session, students learned how USAA is a standout employer as their retention rate among technology staff is 96% with over 18,000 technology and design professionals employed. The students also learned how the company is doing outstanding work in the technology field through revolutionary innovation as they are leading the way in biometrics, remote banking, and mobile deposit services.
In the upcoming weeks, we are excited for our students to be a part of the interviews for summer 2021 internships and full-time positions, in addition to having the opportunity to participate in virtual mock interviews and resume reviews that are being led by Lee and the USAA recruitment team. Students can take part in the events by registering through Handshake (the deadline for registering for virtual interviews has passed). Virtual interviews will take place on October 1-2 and the virtual mock interviews and resume reviews will be happening on October 5-7.
Lee said that as their group are connecting with students they are working with them on what the next step in their career will be saying, “USAA is looking for highly collaborative students who are diverse thinkers, innovative, and creative.” Lee emphasized that what it means to be a part of the USAA mission “is to be someone who does not just stop at ordinary but to be service-oriented.” She also said that students that intern with USAA should expect that their experience with the company will give them the chance to actively acquire skills in the field through hands-on projects where they will be solving problems and creating solutions.
ACU and COBA are grateful to be collaborating with a company who share a mission-minded approach like the university to create positive change for the future. Students who are interested in being a part of the upcoming interviews and resume reviews can contact Steph Brown, the ACU Career Center, or visit their Handshake account for more information.
