Talent Ninja

Founder

Talent Ninja seeks to empower emerging-marking job seekers through opening the door for opportunity. Top Talent is a buzzword for great companies today, as recruiters and managers are looking away from the traditional resume and towards raw potential, intelligence, and creativity. “Underappreciated Talent” is the newest iteration of the Talent revolution, where companies look to catch budding talent early and mentor and groom the individual for internal success. This is great news for the candidates who posses incredible spirit, drive, and minds, but lack understanding of the recruiting game. It’s time to bring in a new group of Underappreciated Talent into the conversation, by showing them how to join!

Career

Introduction to Talent Ninja

I started Talent Ninja because I saw a need. Educated, English-speaking young people, coming from impoverished communities but benefiting from NGO's and charities, did not have the resources nor understanding of how to put into practice their incredible talents. I started creating educational content to empower Millennial job seekers in Latin America so they could thrive.

Global Talent Director

Recruit, retain, uplift, blast off!

Trax is a venture-backed, logistics data refinery with a first-in-its-kind, open-source B2B platform. This past year, I have been a part of co-chartering the company's new Trax Talent Organization from scratch. In Talent I have driven business strategy in recruiting top talent in all 5 regions through strategic new partnerships, creative sourcing, and process improvement. I was also a part of establishing a company career development program, from assessing individuals to creating content for training to mentoring employees for further growth. Through marketing initiatives, I am constantly working to positively shape our employment brand to attract top talent, and have done so successfully by growing the company's online presence and relevance, promoting community involvement to mentor women in tech, and partnering with local institutions for strategic internships. I'm proud to say Trax was named CareerBuilders's "Top Company to Work in Arizona" for 2014 thanks to joint efforts from Talent and senior leadership.
