Advice for pursuing a Medtronic career

"When you meet the recruiters, when you go to the Medtronic booth, just be yourself. That's the first thing and that's that's how I was able to connect another level with the recruiters and the people that worked at Medtronic," she explains.

"That's the opportunity for you to actually show yourself, distinguish yourself from other people and not just be one of so many candidates. So just take the opportunity to meet with recruiters and connect, and see where that takes you."
