Hi, my name is Alyssa Rodriguez! I am a spirited Human Resources leader and career enthusiast based out of Northern California.
Some of you might recognize me as that friendly face in Human Resources who you always see smiling. Others might know me as the girl who helped their friend land their next big adventure, and find bliss in their personal and professional life.
What’s the common trend between these two things? It’s people! At the end of the day, it’s the passionate people and teams that I work with that keep me energized and grateful to work in human resources.
So you’d like to know a little bit more about me?
Well, I was a first-generation college student who went to the University of Oregon. After four short years, I graduated from the Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and a minor in Spanish.
I currently work at the University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) where I spend most of my days working with hiring managers across California to facilitate our staffing, compensation and employee relation programs. Working at the University of California is an exciting place to be, as we are constantly striving to learn more, do more and improve the lives of our students and communities.
In the past, I’ve worked at Target as an Executive Team Leader in Human Resources and at the Rite Aid Distribution Center as an Assistant Human Resources Manager. In each role that I’ve held, I have strived to prove that YES, HR can be a strategic and supportive friend to have on your team!
Outside of these roles, I’ve helped countless of my friends revamp their resumes and cover letters, kickstart their career searches, find what they’re truly passionate about, and get that job they’ve always dreamed of. I enjoy working with and coaching eager leaders who are ready to launch forward in their careers, and I’m always looking to help out more people (p.s. if you need guidance or motivation with your career, send me a message!).
Wait, so you want to know how I spend my free time?
I’m glad you asked! I’m a coffee lover, dog mom, explorer, and foodie at heart. In my free time, you can probably find me on a walk with my dog, cooking up a meal or continuing my search for the perfect cup of coffee.
Don’t forget to say hi!
I’m always open to exciting new opportunities and new connections. Please stay in touch with me by sending me a message on LinkedIn or Twitter. It would be really great to hear from you!
