I am an author, public speaker, columnist and career expert for Monster. Utilizing my more than 15 years of experience in corporate recruiting and human resources, I aim to empower job seekers with insights and first-hand knowledge from the halls of HR. I am the author of "Big Career in the Big City" and a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, Forbes.com, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Post and Success.com. I have also been quoted in many top business and consumer outlets worldwide, including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NBC News, Dateline Australia, Fast Company and Women’s Health. As a recognized influencer in the recruitment industry, I often interview notable names, such as Gloria Steinem, Derek Jeter and Michael J. Fox, about their own careers. I am also the former creator/host/producer of mediabistroTV's "Score That Job," and was proud to be named one of the top 25 career bloggers in the U.S. by BlogHer in 2011. Previously, I held recruiting and HR roles at major financial institutions including Deloitte and KPMG. I graduated from Lafayette College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology, and earned a management certificate from Cornell University.
