I appreciate having the opportunity to empower multicultural students to become corporate and community leaders. Everyday I am challenged to manage relationships with corporations seeking top talent; Universities that want to enhance their student's chances at landing a full time employment opportunity and Alumni who desire to attract professional development opportunitiesCons
There is a lack of internal Professional Development opportunities for staff. Many of us need to find training opportunities outside of the organization.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at INROADS in September 2013.Interview Details
One would think I was a candidate for a six figure salary job, NOT! Over the course of two months I had 2 face-to-face interviews, 1 teleconference interview, 1 panel interview, submit a 90 day plan, and present a sales pitch. I was told it was down to me and another candidate.
I'm okay that INROADS went with another candidate however I was extremely disappointed no one notified me. I waited 2 weeks without hearing anything, not a email, phone call or letter. I finally called the hiring manager and HR representative for a status update. That was when I finally received a "you were not selected" email.
This was extremely unprofessional to me. Had I never called would I ever be notified? You would think after making a professional go through such a strenuous interview process you would give them the courtesy of notifying them. I feel like I dodged a HUGE bullet by not being offered employment.Interview Questions
