"Lord Hastings talk highlights inaugural Smeal Corporate Citizenship Conference"
Hastings’ talk provided examples of corporate citizenship, as well as advice students can use when they enter the workforce.
“It is no longer acceptable for corporations to simply state their values. They must demonstrate them,” Hastings said.
For students preparing to enter the work world, Hastings said he has reviewed countless resumes that simply list a person’s experience. His message is that companies want to see more.
“I’ve seen your capabilities. I want to see your heart,” he said. “I want to know what makes you tick."
