Rimini Street partnered up with our friends at Boys & Girls Club of Oakland (BGCO) again, this time for an unforgettable experience at our Silicon Valley Operations Center in Pleasanton, California. We invited teens and chaperones from the various Oakland chapters to spend an afternoon with our colleagues, learning first hand, careers opportunities and valuable life lessons that helped propel our team to success. Our goal was to make our guests feel like kings and queens and impart with them, our passion for personal and career development and the significance of always thinking big.
The day started with our guests arriving in style in a stretch party bus and meeting the CEO over a pizza party lunch. Then our President and Board Member of BGCO, Sebastian Grady along with the Sales Team, spoke about perserverance and the value of building on life experiences. Team Marketing gave our guests insight on the variety of Marketing Careers and why Communication skills is considered one of the biggest factors of success. The Global Service Delivery Team and IT Team showcased our global presence and the many careers that will allow them to see and connect with the entire world. Team Legal did a live demonstration on the importance of contracts and the law while HR and Security talked about protecting the company and our unique culture. Team Finance taught our guests that accuracy is crucial to a business and featured the many careers on Main Street and Wall Street.
This was a memorable event for both Rimini Street and BGCO and we all walked away from the experience enlightened as mentors and students of one another. We hope to invite many more students to visit all of our offices in the near future and look forward to learning much from them also.
