    gives you the confidence to lead more types of people Wingo left Apple to start a leadership journey of his own as a founding member of Ridge Technologies Here he uncovered a passion for entrepreneurship and later went on to start another start up WhereNet an early player in the Internet of Things movement Although he s now returned to a large corporation by joining the team at Cisco Wingo says his entrepreneurial energy has never been higher If you look at my career it s a series of startups bookended by two major corporations But even at Apple and Cisco there s room for entrepreneurship Wingo observes There s room for entrepreneurship and new thinking in every company in every aspect in every management job As a leader of Cisco Wingo keeps the beat steady in the face of some big challenges most notably the industry s broad shift from hardware to software centered businesses The change brings greater efficiency and profitability as connectedness becomes the standard but forces business to maintain a faster cadence The growing weight of software means that the cost of starting a business has declined significantly Wingo sees this as a boon for entrepreneurs who now have the opportunity to disrupt major industries even with only a handful of employees Brett hopes he can continue to bring his knowledge of the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds back to Cal Poly He currently serves as a Dean s Advisory Council member for the Orfalea College of Business where he has the chance to offer students and members of the Cal Poly community opportunities to learn from his experience in the same way he s learned from others Even if I can do one thing for the college or have an impact on one student that s worth it to me Francesca Delle Cese B S and M S in Industrial Technology Packaging Engineer at Apple In less than two years after graduating from Cal Poly Francesca Delle Cese can confidently say that she has found her dream job As a packaging engineer at Apple Delle Cese works on designing innovative new packaging products that customers around the globe see every single day When you launch a product at Apple you get to see the customers reactions not only in stores but online as well says Francesca That part has been really great Francesca was originally a biochemistry major at Cal Poly but switched into industrial technology after a friend recommended she take IT 330 The Fundamentals of Packaging in the Orfalea College of Business The cool thing in IT 330 was that you made something that was tangible There was that mixture of science and design So I stuck with it and liked it so much that I decided to go to grad school She joined the industrial technology s masters program in 2012 where she had the chance to do thesis research and take courses in advanced business and technology topics Delle Cese also enjoyed

  • OCOB - A Q&A with Chelsea Kidwell
    work experience Recruiters always tell me that if a student can clearly articulate their skills and experience if they can actually talk to someone they are more likely to get hired Once a student has that down they will be ready to embark on their career Q What new resources is Orfalea offering students to prepare them for the transition A In fall 2015 we launched a new interactive course called BUS 206 Business Professionalism and Career Readiness I which focuses on topics such as resume building interviewing networking skills and career exploration It provides a space for students to practice skills needed in the hiring process and gather feedback In 2016 we will be introducing BUS 306 Business Professionalism and Career Readiness II which will dive even further into career advancement and industry exploration These classes were designed to help students secure internship opportunities and confidently transition into their careers Q What one piece of advice would you give to a student preparing for the workforce A Use this time at Cal Poly to intentionally build out your resume Gain experience in areas where you might be less confident by joining a club sitting on a committee taking on multiple internships and making a positive impact in your community You want to show an employer that you are well rounded and can balance your school work with extracurricular activities Put yourself out there use every resource and networking opportunity on and off campus to communicate your goals and develop connections that could help you meet your career goals Q What big challenges are students facing in the hiring process today A Today s hiring process is extremely competitive and recruiting at Cal Poly is no different As such it s no longer enough to be exceptionally bright and driven
