Nissan’s Fifth Annual Resume Challenge Impacts Youth


Nissan takes pride in its community efforts and recently hosted its fifth annual Nissan Resume Challenge and Submit in Nashville, Tennessee at the Nissan Stadium. The Challenge is in partnership with the 100 Black Men of America and consists of a two-day experience, in which high school students attend leadership workshops and have the opportunity to meet and learn from Nissan representatives and leaders within the community. There were 55 students who are all male juniors and seniors from six different cities who look forward to the summit to prepare them for success. The students had to first, participate in a resume and interview process with representatives from their local chapter of 100 Black Men of America. For those who presented strong resumes and interview skills, Nissan covered the cost of their attendance to the Summit at Titan Stadium. During their stay, the boys enjoyed leadership workshops, Q&A session, and tours of Nissan’s North American headquarters, the Smyrna Manufacturing plant, and the Nashville Public Library's Civil Rights Room. Titans Running Back, Derrick Henry spoke to the students about overcoming adversity and hosted a one-on-one discussion. Other activities included autographs, photos with the Henry and the Heisman trophy, free giveaways and more.


"Every year, we meet an outstanding group of young men eager to learn, network and hone their interview skills as they begin to plan for their futures after high school," said Rebecca Vest, vice president, Corporate Development and Social Responsibility, Nissan North America, Inc.

McDavid Nissan is proud to be apart of such an innovative brand that also focuses on changing the lives of youth and people in need. For more information about the Nissan ResumeChallenge and Summit, click here.
