On the last weekend of February, Cairn University Enactus held its annual RIDE seminar. This year, nearly 70 students and 17 local businesses participated in the event.

RIDE (Resume, Interview, Dress, Etiquette) has been held annually for over a decade. Local businesses and universities such as Biohaven Pharmaceuticals, Compassion International, and Feedonomics attended this year to build connections with students and serve as mock interviewers. The preparation seminar during RIDE also instructed attendants on how to shape a resume, master a first impression, dress to impress, and improve business etiquette.

The event and students this year received highly positive feedback. Cairn’s continued partnership with Enactus, “the world’s largest experiential learning platform,” has resulted in several awards across the years. Cairn’s team has come in first place in 16 regional-level Enactus competitions and has been consistently ranked within the top 20 teams of the USA National Exposition.
