Since day one I could tell that military service was valued. Not only the act of serving but for the skills and attributes that the military instilled in me to bring to the table. I can always tell that the bar is set a little higher once it’s know I’m a Veteran and I love that I’m given that extra responsibility. I would tell other Veterans that your service is valued at Kellogg and wouldn’t ever go unnoticed. That has always been important to me and I know it is important to other Veterans.
After my third deployment in the Navy, I decided it was time to go back to school. I knew I wanted to be in the marketing or sales field, but I didn’t really know how to get there with a company that I could grow in and find a career with. In my sophomore year, I was already taking advanced sales classes and had the opportunity to have a District Sales Manager and Retail Sales Representative come into class and talk to us about Kellogg and an internship opportunity that was approaching in my area. I could hear the passion in their voices about the company and how it operated as a family. I was instantly sold! After my three month internship I wasn’t disappointed either. Somehow a worldwide, fortune 500 company is made to feel like a “mom and pop shop” where everyone cares about their fellow employees. This is what sets Kellogg apart from other employers. This ultimately led to me accepting a job offer from Kellogg over other fortune 500 companies.
