Western Digital – October 19, 2016

Missed the workshop with Western Digital? Have no fear, here is the recap of what we learned from Philip Parian, an SJSU alum who is currently the Worldwide Sales Enabler of Western Digital. Western Digital is an American computer data storage company that is also one of the largest computer hard disk drive manufacturers in the world. More than 60% of the world’s date is stored through Western Digital.

In his workshop, Philip told us about how he came from a 2.79 GPA in SJSU to attaining his position at Western Digital. Philip stressed that “Your GPA isn’t you” and that he worked hard to get where he is today. Philip also mentioned that SJSU students are known for their drive and motivation to employers and we must continue to uphold to that standard. The three tips he left us marketers with was to “love sales”, “politics matter”, and “smile”.

We are thankful to have Philip come visit MA. Last week’s environment during the workshop was lively and even funny, thanks to Philips and our members’ energy.
