Serving the western half of the U.S., the Mountain Park Association of Colleges and Employers connects college career services reps with employers to help great companies find great alumni to fill their open positions. Each year, the Mountain Park ACE hosts a conference that combines networking, inspiration, and trends in recruiting to help the two parties it serves perform their jobs with efficiency and effectiveness.
In 2012, at their national conference, Chris Waddell was a keynote speaker. Waddell is the most decorated male skier in Paralympic history. He spoke of resilience, leadership, and overcoming adversity - three skills that helped Waddell persevere. And three skills that are often necessary to find work in this economic climate.
