Chuck Solomon: Hi Rhona, how are you today?
Rhona Barnett-Pierce: I'm good Chuck. How are you?
Chuck Solomon: Very good, thank you. Can you tell listeners a little bit about yourself and your current role at your company?
Rhona Barnett-Pierce: Sure. So first of all, thank you so much for having me candidate. Absolutely. Candidate experience is really one of my favorite things to chat about.
I'm Rhona Pierce, like you said. I'm a former software engineer and project manager turned talent acquisition leader. I've been in TA full-time, officially since 2017. Mm-hmm. Unofficially long before that. Sure. I'm current, I'm currently the director of recruiting operations at Leaf Group, which means that I oversee the.
Full recruiting process at leaf, everything from candidate experience, employer branding, sourcing all, all of the fun stuff. Sure. Many people haven't heard about Leaf Group. Leaf Group is a portfolio of media and e-commerce brands. Sure. Mostly in the lifestyle category. Some of our most notable brands are live Strong, well and good society, six Sachi Art.
Most of the roles that we hire for are editorial marketing, software engineering, basically any role that you would imagine is needed to support a media or e-commerce
company. Gotcha. So media company, not an arborist. Yes,
exactly.
Chuck Solomon: Gotcha. What got you started in this talent acquisition space?
Rhona Barnett-Pierce: I love this question because the answer is definitely not.
This is what I always dreamt of doing and went to school for. Yeah. Like most of the TA professionals that I know, I literally fell into ta. I was trying to solve the problem, the hiring problem we were having. Mm-hmm. At one of the companies I was working at at the time, I was an operations manager.

We recorded back in November of 2021, so like a year and a half ago, and I will. Definitely put the notes or the link in the notes to this episode to your previous one, which I thought was great.

I think you had some great things to share. I especially like the fact that you, you talked about. What you could do for the candidate experience in a small, medium, and large. It's like ordering off a menu, right? Yeah. Small, medium, or large. Mm-hmm. So I would encourage listeners to, to go back and listen to that.

Cause I think what you said then still applies to today. [00:01:00] But before we get, yeah, sure. Yeah. Before we get rolling, can you please introduce yourself to listeners? 

Haley Sasser: Yes, so my name is Haley Sasser. I live in Tampa, Florida, and I have almost nine years of experience in the employer brand and recruitment marketing space.

And most recently, the past two years in internal communications and, you know, employee engagement. And so some of the things I've done and have. Really passionate about are, you know, e V P development careers, websites, and revamping those and really enabling talent acquisition teams with recruitment marketing content, and Email templates that align with, with the brand and with the voice of the company, and of course reputation management as well.

Transcript:

Chuck Solomon: Hi Lauren. How are you today? I'm good, Chuck. How are you? I'm doing well. Could you please let listeners know a little bit about yourself, your company, and, and your role?

Lauren Ahrens: Yeah, for sure. So I'm Lauren. I lead global recruiting for a company called H1. We're a Series C startup focused on global healthcare data.

Lauren Ahrens: We actually have a software platform that speeds decision making and insights for users in life sciences and pharmaceutical industries and so forth. And I've been in recruiting for the last 10 plus years, focused mostly on building data and technology enabled recruiting teams and building great candidate experiences.

Chuck Solomon: Awesome. What got you started in working in this talent space?

Lauren Ahrens: Yeah. Honestly, I really recognized it was, it's interesting, it was actually 2008 when mm-hmm. You know, the, the first sort of first real economic crisis I had right. Of my own personal career.  Right. And I was working for a financial services startup at the time.

Lauren Ahrens: And what I noticed is that there were a lot of very unseasoned managers who really struggled to sort of keep a lid on their stress and noticed how it influenced their team somewhat negatively. And I sort of became very kind of hyper aware of how hiring decisions impacted the culture of a company.

Lauren Ahrens: Sure. Super important to me. Not just the candidate experience, but also how it leads into the employee experience. And I wanted a hand in helping shape that.

Chuck Solomon: That's great. I asked that same question of all my guests and I, it is the same question, but I get really unique answers. I think not, not once have I had someone say, well, I was in high school and my guidance counselor said, you should be a recruiter.


Lauren Ahrens: A recruiter. I went to college and got a degree in recruiting. Said no recruiting leader ever.

Chuck Solomon Hey, Dustin. How are you this afternoon? 

Dustin Laycock Hey. Doing great. Doing great. How are you? 

Chuck Solomon I'm well. Can you let our listeners know a little bit about yourself and your current role and a little bit about the company you work for? 

Dustin Laycock Yeah. First off, thanks for. Thanks for having me. Sure. This is definitely something I'm really passionate about and I love talking about. So I was happy to jump at this opportunity. Yeah. So my name is Dustin Laycock. I have been an accidental recruiter for going on 14 years now. I currently work for a company called Zillow. Zillow is really more of a more of a scale up and a startup. I mean, we've been around ten years, so I feel like we're kind of further along on that maturity curve, but we're still smaller. We're about 55 people today, and what we do is that we enable front line workers or desk workers through communication solutions such as Push-to-talk. So we're really big on helping out of all types of industries. We're not industry specific. One cool thing that we do do is we offer our platform for free to first responders. And in fact, last year I think we gave out something around $3.2 million worth of free licenses to first responders. So. Before this. 
Chuck Solomon Yeah. That's awesome though, that you're that you're doing that. I mean, anything that supports first responders is is really good in my book.

Sure. Well, thanks for having me first. My name is Kaitlyn, I run the talent function at TOMO, which is a fin tech startup. It's about two and a half years old. But prior to working in the startup world, I had a really fun career in fashion and in finance before that. So I've been on the HR recruitment side and many different industries, but have always found myself within the recruitment space. That's where my heart is.

Chuck Solomon

Gotcha. I totally understand.  How did you know how did you get into this? Talent? People attraction space?

Kaitlyn Tarpey Borea

It's such a good question, because I feel that so many people say they fall into it. For me, I was I am the daughter of an accountant and a math teacher. And so I knew from a very early age that I did not want to work with numbers. I wanted to work with people. And so I knew at least that much going through undergrad. And really, when I think about what recruitment is, it's matchmaking but it's also being an ambassador for a company for a brand for an organization that, that you're passionate about. And I've had some good practice, in situations like that I grew up in the pageant circuit. And you know, it's very natural to me to connect people, and to guide people to into whatever it is that their heart's calling them for. So there's a little bit of I knew I wanted to do with people versus numbers. And then just sort of a circumstance where I fell into an assignment, I ended up being successful in that assignment. And then my career really took off after that.

I'm doing well. Dee, how did you get into this whole talent, attraction space.

Dee Commodore  0:12

It was 2008, I attended a job fair. And Tish Moore from Greene Resources at this time had interviewed me and hired me on the spot as a recruitment coordinator. And after working there at Greene Resources on assignment, I had seen the impact that, you know, all the recruiters had on peoples lives, it basically piqued my interest, and then, therefore, became my career path after working as I was, as I've been for.

Chuck Solomon  0:45

Excellent, thanks for sharing that. Yeah, I tried to ask that same question to everyone. And I think everyone's path into this career is, is unique and different. So and I think I have yet to hear someone say, Oh, I I planned on it from doesn't It doesn't sound like you planned on it, right?

Dee Commodore  1:10

No, I know, I definitely didn't. However, it did. Pull from my background. Because, again, to me, recruitment is about relationship building, customer service, and, you know, being from the islands, you know, that's something that is important, because tourism is the main part of my community. So I wanted to go originally go into hospitality manage to meet the same thing. But it's just the flip side of it. So I realized my passion, and my personality, you know, identify was live, at least I hope so.

Chuck Solomon  1:50

Chuck Solomon

I'm well, thanks so much. Can you let listeners know a little bit about the company work for and your role there?

Emily Kaija

Oh, I'd be happy to. So I work for XWP as a candidate experience specialist. And my focus is to deliver exceptional experiences for everyone who participates in the hiring process at x WP web agency and we deliver enterprise level solutions with WordPress technology. A lot of our clients are publishing entities like magazines, newspapers, who need a really strong and versatile content management system. So we worked with Rolling Stone magazine, News Corp, Australia, a Variety magazine, a lot of companies like that WordPress is an open source software, which means that anybody can use it, modify it, make it better. And it powers about 40% of the websites on the intranet. So actually, a lot of people probably see WordPress sites every day and may not even realize it. But right. We work with digital partners as well like Google and Pantheon and automatic to develop new technologies and plugins to share with the WordPress community.

What led you into working into this talent or people space? What's your backstory?


Rosie Martinson  0:51

It's a really great question. Because as as you know, I'm sure being in this world, some people are in HR, and some are marketing. And some as recruiters, there's lots of different ways to get into this space. And so, I actually am a marketer at heart, I've been in marketing for over 15 years, I have a public relations advertising degree. And about seven or eight years ago, as I was working in healthcare marketing, I was looking for something new, and I wanted to grow my career and work for a larger company. And so, I came across a demand generation manager role. And, you know, if if, you know, marketing demand generation is a marketing term, and it's a marketer that is generating demand, or a company's product or service, right, that you are marketing to your audience.

Hey, Omar, how are you today?

Omer Molad  0:02

Hey, Chuck I'm great, how's it going?

Chuck Solomon  0:05

It's going very well. Thanks for being a guest on the podcast today.

Omer Molad  0:10

Thanks for having me.

Chuck Solomon  0:12

Appreciate it. So before we get into talking about candidate experience, can you give like a, you know, quick overview of sort of how how'd you get into the hiring industry?

Omer Molad  0:24

Sure. So this startup that I'm a co founder of Vervoe is really my first kind of official foray into the hiring industry. Prior to that, I, my only experience in hiring was being hired or trying to get hired and, and hiring people as a hiring manager, which, which I did a lot of, in a past life, but I was not a recruitment practitioner in any in any form before starting this company.

Chuck Solomon  1:02

Sure What, you know, you talk to a lot of companies out there, and I'm, like, you've seen a lot of, sort of can't good candidate experience bad candidate experience? Like, what are you seeing, like, where companies are getting candidate experience? Where they're doing it well?

Omer Molad  1:22

Unfortunately, it's the minority of companies that, that do it? Well, in my opinion, and, sure, yeah, and if I had to really sort of boil it down to something really simple. A good candidate experience is an experience that sets a candidate up for success and, and gives them an opportunity to, to put their best foot forward. And a bad candidate experience is one that creates obstacles for the candidate, and makes it difficult for them to put their best foot forward. And all the rest is really just detail. Right?

And so what I did was I put a bug in my supervisors ear, that's really that's really a like route I feel like I would be good at and I would love to take, and it just so happened that are all around HR accounting person left, and I was able to take on some duties. And the first thing I did was a sexual harassment training, the interaction that I had with the group, it really put a fire in me. And I said to myself, this is what I'm going to do. And I started looking for a job in an HR department, still in a state agency, and I got one that wasn't 1999. And I've never looked back since then.

Chuck Solomon  2:00
