DARE TO DO MORE ALUMNI

Don't understand the hype? Take it from them...

Taking part in the #DTDM Challenge was a ride full of emotions and excitement! It really gives you the chance to voice freely and present your own ideas, without being dependent on any resume or needing to have any work experience. It’s all about getting out of your comfort zone and being creative. That's why I joined the challenge, to test my skills in finding a solution to a real business issue

Katerina, DTDM 2021 Third Winner, Marketing, Poland.

I am thrilled about the Dare To Do More program and the opportunities that lie ahead of me. Adding value and getting exposure on business projects and challenges in a multifunctional environment, while learning new skills in supply chain operations from a 360 perspective is a unique PepsiCo experience. Lastly, the motivation to be proactive and lead initiatives molds a proper mindset for all grads.
 
Michalis, DTDM 2021 First Winner, Supply Chain, Greece.

“Dare To Do More struck me as a stimulating challenge that showcased the value PepsiCo attaches to creativity. The warm attitude in the interview allowed me to confidently present myself and my aspirations without feeling judged. I hope the program is kept for the coming years!”
 
Cari, DTDM 2021 Finalist, Data Analytics, Spain.

“I enjoyed taking part in the challenge to showcase my skills through the business case. For once it doesn’t depend on the algorithm based on your resume. It really depends on the work you put into your business case. It was also the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, to come up with an innovative idea, to be creative and analytical and that’s what I loved the most.” 
 
Margaux, DTDM 2020 Finalist, Digital, France.

“Along the selection process, every candidate had the chance to present a Business Idea; I felt that this approach was extremely innovative. The core of the evaluation was the attitude of the candidates and their sensitivity to find solutions in a real business environment. Also, the training organized by PepsiCo to improve soft skills and public speaking abilities helped me to persuade the jury. Looking back at my experience, more than a selection process I enjoyed it like a great learning journey!”
