Your Future Leaders, Today

Why hire a Duck? UO students are smart, creative, and increasingly diverse. They are problem solvers and storytellers. They've got grit and perseverance. They care about their community and are passionate about leaving their world better than they found it. And they want to work for you.

Boyuan Yang

The UO has many opportunities for students to build their skills outside of the classroom. As an undergrad, I was involved in multiple student organizations and was able to attend workshops by professionals. These opportunities helped me to explore potential career paths and figure out the best fit for my passions and strengths.

— Boyuan Yang, BS ’18 (accounting), audit and assurance senior at Deloitte
Pam Flores

My time at the UO taught me to prioritize, manage my time, and work smarter, not harder. As a first-generation college student, I had to push my own boundaries and dive into everything with a ‘why not?’ attitude. These skills have helped me to succeed in my career path in recruiting.

— Pam Flores, BA ’17 (Spanish), talent acquisition recruiter at Nike

Marcus Ramirez

UO students have a strong interest in service opportunities. They want to make a difference and have an impact. I'm impressed by the variety of things outside the classroom students are involved in, and how they connect and translate those experiences to opportunities they seek. They also have a wide-eyed curiosity and an openness to exploring, which I especially appreciate.
