  • Advise hiring managers on interview process, best practices, market intelligence, and salary negotiation.
  • Build and leverage network (business resource groups, professional organizations with a focus on diversity) to become a subject matter expert.
  • Collaborate with the WBD Diversity Outreach team to target, attend, and source from key industry events and bespoke activations.
  • Support, educate, and advocate for internal talent.
  • Participate in special projects that support continuous business process improvement.

    • Ability to work in a dynamic, fast-paced environment.
