Who says companies are not hiring? Not so, says college student Nathan Lam, who has already received 10 job offers.

"I honestly didn’t expect so many offers to roll in,” said Lam, a fifth-year senior at the University of Washington (UW) who majors in Finance and Information Systems. He will graduate in March 2012.

Companies like Boeing, Living Social and Starbucks want to hire the 21-year-old to be part of their team. He attributes his success to Ascend, a national non-profit organization with a chapter in Seattle, that nurtures today’s pan-Asian American leaders as well as tomorrow’s. Lam served as interim president for Ascend’s UW student chapter.

"It provided me with the confidence and leadership skills throughout the school year to understand how to communicate with professionals,” said Lam. "There were so many situations and scenarios that went on in our student group that helped me understand how to handle situations in the real world.”
