On February 4, Marathon Consulting presented Pizza My Mind. Marathon is a consulting company headquartered in Virginia Beach. They have been voted one of the best places to work in Virginia since 2011. They serve private industries rather than the federal government and work in fields from healthcare to finance to education and many more. Marathon strives to recruit and retain the best of the best. Presenters Harris Pezzella (President), Tom Marsden (Vice President), Katie Keene (Senior Recruiter), and Lindsey Mashburn (Senior Recruiter) joined us to talk about the opportunities available at Marathon.
The culture at Marathon is very social, and the company has taken great care to keep this culture alive in the virtual environment we find ourselves in today. Marathon focuses on nurturing the professional and personal growth of each employee as well as maintaining a balance between life and dignity. Employees at Marathon receive healthcare, paid time off, paid premium overtime, a competitive 401k, professional development training, health and wellness benefits, among other benefits.
In recent years, the company focus has shifted from senior level consultants to identifying less senior talent who can learn and develop skills. Marathon offers an internship program with the chance to transition to full time employment. In particular, Marathon is looking for interns interested in web development, application development, mobile development, and quality assurance. All students who are interested should keep an eye out on Handshake for upcoming summer positions.
