How do UA Alumni find their jobs? By talking to people

We asked UA alumni for stories and advice about getting hired, and you shared excellent tips about choosing a career, interviewing, finding a job and more. We’ll be sharing them over the next few months on Twitter (follow @HireACat) and in articles on different career topics.

We also asked the question: How did you find your current job?

There was a very clear top answer: Through a referral from someone you know.



For our Cats in the Corner Office series, we sat down with UA alumnus and Macy’s, Inc. CEO Terry J. Lundgren to talk about his career journey, the retail industry, and lessons he learned on his way to the corner office.

Lundgren is CEO of one of the nation’s premier omnichannel retailers, with fiscal 2015 sales of $27.1 billion. But he didn’t start at the top, nor did success happen overnight. In fact, Lundgren’s career began in a restaurant, shucking oysters and taking the initiative to work his way up.
