#197) Behind the Scenes of the Hiring Process | Shelley Piedmont

Season 1, Ep. 197

Today I brought on Shelley Piedmont, who has been in human resources for over 20 years and also currently serves job seekers as a strategist and career coach. 

Shelley has read thousands of resumes and interviewed too many candidates to count.  She’s hired for everything from entry-level hourly positions to senior leaders on behalf of Fortune 500s, small and private businesses, and everything in between.

Fun fact, Shelley also went to Cornell and also studied hospitality! It’s always good to have a fellow Cornellian on the show, let the mini-reunion begin. 

So let’s dive into how companies are hiring, because not only will this help the curious job seeker -- but the one who is wanting to deconstruct the process to get ahead of the competition.
