Meet RCDP Trainee: Dawson Shugarts
We are pleased to introduce Rusken Career Development Program (RCDP) trainee, Dawson Shugarts!
After graduating from the University of Alabama, class of 2022, with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a minor in Sales, Dawson learned of the Rusken RCDP program as a student at the University of Alabama career fair. About to become a recent college graduate, Dawson was seeking a career where he could feel like he was making an impact, so he applied for the RCDP.
As part of the RCDP, Dawson will rotate through each Rusken department learning various functions, while taking on projects and contributing to the organization’s goals. After completion of his first rotation, shipping with Jeff Bowman, Dawson has found that communication between all departments is key to making the shipping process work efficiently.
“The biggest obstacle that I have had to overcome is understanding the actual scale of the operation we run. There are many moving parts to this business, especially shipping. It took some time to adjust my lens to see the whole picture.”, said Dawson in regard to what obstacle he overcame during this rotation.
Born and raised in Cullman, Alabama, when Dawson isn’t busy with the RCDP, he enjoys going to the shooting range, playing golf, and watching football.
Please join us in welcoming Dawson to the Rusken Team!
