ALDI, a Miami University Career Partner, is a German multinational discount supermarket chain that operates over 10,000 stores in 20 countries. Below, District Manager Anne Marie Rice ’20 gives advice for students who are pursuing full-time and internship opportunities.
What makes a candidate stand out to you during the recruiting and interview process?
There are numerous factors that can help a candidate stand out during the recruiting process. One very important factor is preparedness. Candidates truly shine when they have researched the company they are interviewing with. Having prepared questions for us shows you are invested in the process.
What advice would you give Miami students to set themselves up for success as they pursue internships and their post-graduation goals?
Effective use of time is a critical skill. I encourage students to define their priorities and then allocate time on a daily and weekly basis in order to accomplish these goals in the necessary time frame. This is true for both professional goals and personal goals.
What have you observed that sets Miami candidates apart from others?
Miami candidates are curious to learn and ask many questions to get to the root of a problem. This tenacity to understand allows them to be successful in uncovering the cause of a problem so they can appropriately address it with an effective solution.
