If you are a current or aspiring recruiting leader, an executive recruiter, or a talent technology vendor wondering what keeps corporate recruiting leaders up at night, the “Big Fish in the Talent Pool” podcast is your new best friend. Through the magic of podcast technology, I capture my coffee conversations with current Fortune 500 Global Heads of TA exclusively, about the joys and challenges of TA Leadership.
For our inaugural episode, we caught up with Tara Noonan Amaral, SVP and Head of Talent Acquisition for Fidelity Investments. Tara is the embodiment of Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” concept. She has taken the hard assignments, overcome huge obstacles, taken risks and gained keen insights she shares candidly with our audience. In fact, my interview with Tara is rich enough that we divided it into three parts. Topics include employment branding, her favorite new technologies, culture and unconscious bias in hiring, global team management, smart sourcing, the state of RPO, and more.
