Ford's College Ambassador Challenge Offers Students Real-World Experience For A Competitive Employment Landscape

In today's job market, graduates need more than what the classroom has to offer to obtain employment. And experiences like the Ford College Ambassador Challenge are essential.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), while recruiting and hiring is on the upswing for graduates, it remains very slow. NACE's Job Outlook 2013 survey shows employers anticipate hiring 13 percent more recent college grads this year than last year. This means students need to equip themselves with as many tools as possible to land a job.

According to NACE, eight out of 10 employers who review the resumes of potential college hires are seeking evidence of leadership skills. And 75 percent of employers are looking for problem-solving skills. The College Ambassador Challenge aims to provide experience specific to those employers' needs.

"We are looking for teams who can learn our products and engage potential customers with innovative marketing, leadership and problem-solving skills," said Jelenic. "They'll gain valuable real-world professional experience that they can use upon graduation while showcasing their talents to us."

The challenges began mid-March and will run through April 25, 2013. InternQueen.com will tabulate the points and choose the winning team on April 29, 2013.
