Who's on Campus
Look for one of these familiar faces recruiting on a campus near you.
Sure, Alaina loves the bacon cheese fries at Eskimo Joe’s in Stillwater, Okla., or the black bean dip at So Long in Manhattan, Kan., and of course the coffee at Coal Creek Coffee in Laramie, Wyo., but even more than getting to try great food in campus towns across the United States, Alaina is most looking forward to finding the future leaders of Seaboard Foods during college recruiting this year.
Alaina, an Oklahoma State alumnus, loves recruiting because she gets to directly impact every department in the Seaboard Foods connected food system by bringing high-quality talent into the company, while meeting so many people in interesting places along the way.
“I love getting to know the variety of people I come across each day and being able to change their lives by offering them careers that fit their personalities and skill sets,” says Alaina.
When she isn’t working, she enjoys golfing, watching college football, playing with her dogs and spending time with friends and family.
Katie may not be an artist, but as a recruiter, it is her job to paint a career picture so college students with limited work experience can have an idea of what to expect in their careers once they graduate. Her favorite part of recruiting is seeing the finished masterpiece, watching a student’s career grow from the first interaction at the career fair, to a visit to operations, to a job offer and promotions.
“I love helping others,” says Katie. “Deciding where you want to work is one the most important decisions you make and being able to help someone in that process is very rewarding.”
Katie, a University of Kansas alumnus, is excited to recruit business students at her alma mater.
Outside of recruiting, Katie enjoys spending time with her husband, their young daughter and their Labrador retriever. She also enjoys having backyard parties with family and friends and remodeling her house.
Riley began her career at Seaboard Foods as a farm intern, giving her first-hand knowledge of the connected food system and the opportunities for various career paths, which attracted her to return to the company after college. In fact, the company's connectivity and the unique networking opportunities it creates is one of the reasons Riley is so passionate about Seaboard Foods.
Riley, a graduate of Kansas State University, looks forward to meeting candidates and helping them find their perfect careers.
“Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try new things,” advises Riley. “Sometimes the only way we find our true passion is by stepping out of our comfort zone, asking lots of questions and introducing yourself to new people.”
Riley, a resident of Liberal, Kan., enjoys small town living and the close relationships it provides. She likes to golf, duck hunt, take her golden retriever, Audi, on walks and participate in community events.
It wasn't long ago that Sydney was a college student at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky., making it easy for her to relate to the experiences of the students she will be talking to on campus.
She grew up on a farm in Illinois, and worked on several livestock farms while attending college in Kentucky. She now lives in Oklahoma. Based on her experience, she encourages students not to limit their locations when looking for a first job. "Don't be afraid to move away from where is comfortable,” she says. “If location is not an issue for you, the world becomes your playground.”
Traveling and meeting new people is Sydney's favorite part of the job, which makes the hard work of college recruiting rewarding to her.
When she has free time, Sydney enjoys hiking, cookouts with friends, coaching softball and attending country concerts.
