Name: Lauren Wilson
Position: Human Resources Graduate Leadership Development Intern, Yahoo! Inc.
Overview: Last summer I interned at Yahoo! in Sunnyvale California and worked on the University Recruiting team to develop a long term diversity strategy focused on women in technology. In order to complete my project I worked closely with 4 internal departments, 14 top-tier universities, 37 diversity organizations and held 2 focus groups. In the end, I developed customized recruiting procedures for each University geared at planning campus recruiting events for female computer science students and increasing the number of hires. My internship also consisted of recruiting 130+ advertising and sales candidates for a new branch in Omaha Nebraska. After formally presenting my work to the HR executive team I was offered a full-time position upon graduation in May. My background also includes an undergraduate internship at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

I helped create social media contests, videos and a variety of other online promotions. I also planned and coordinated private events for large businesses such as Beauty Brands, US Bank and Morgan Stanley.

Name: Ashley Jackson
