On Wednesday, February 19th alumnus Logan Randolph will return to campus to meet with students.
If you’re dead set on climbing the corporate ladder, this presentation isn’t for you. If you’re struggling to figure out what you want to do…or you’re curious about an organization, but unsure how to get a job there… come to Hillcrest 103 on Wednesday, February 19 at 6:30 p.m. Logan Randolph ‘14 will share concrete ways to explore new industries and jobs.
He’ll share specific tools to form deep relationships and get jobs at organizations you care about. He’ll push you to look for employers and job functions that interest you, rather than passively browsing “we’re hiring” pages.
He’ll briefly share his non-linear career trajectory in the six years since leaving Middlebury, and dispel common myths like “work in banking or consulting for two years, then you can do anything!”
One-on-One Career Conversations
Schedule your thirty-minute one-on-one appointment with Logan via Handshake here. Slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis on Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. in the CCI. Logan is available for brainstorming, networking advice, career information, and more.
Logan Randolph graduated from Midd in 2014, where he ski patrolled and played rugby. Following his time in Vermont, he moved to San Francisco and started a company providing a “digital personal assistant.” In 2015, the company was acquired and Logan moved on. He spent a short period of time consulting for a fitness company, before joining Quip as its 20th employee. Since then Quip grew to 200 people and was acquired by Salesforce. Logan spent the past few years as a marketer at Quip and recently switched to a sales role, selling to Salesforce’s top 100 accounts.

Keep reading to learn about the experience of Hayley Howard ’17, Manager of Data Analytics:
“When I began my job search senior year, I knew I wanted to work at a company that would offer what I loved most about Middlebury: a close-knit community, the ability to learn something new every day, and exposure to a diverse array of projects that would challenge me in different ways. I have found all of this in Cadent. Every project offers the opportunity to learn about a new industry, work with different people, and fine tune skills such as data analysis, qualitative research, and public speaking. Working at a small company has meant that I was very quickly given a lot of responsibility, such as leading components of my projects and presenting to clients at major companies. I have also been able to leverage what I learned at Midd. As an economics major, it has been particularly rewarding to apply my knowledge of economic concepts when developing a pricing strategy, or build on my experience with econometrics when analyzing a dataset. Cadent offers the opportunity for a huge degree of professional development, making it a great place to work.”
