nasty: an unreal maneuver of incredible technique, something that is ridiculously good, tricky and manipulative but with a result that can’t help but be admired. A phrase used to describe some one that is good at something. “He has a nasty forkball”.
Who is HRNasty: HRNasty is your Corporate Insider that will give it to you straight. He is the HR exec that has the guts to tell you what your manager / HR department won’t. I may be telling you behind a mask, but you will hear the straight up truth. Most importantly, HRNasty will explain why HR and managers think the way they do. You may think that what you read is unfair and or wrong, you may not like what you read, but my goal is to provide the business logic so that you at least respect WHY the process is in place. Many managers don’t have what what it takes (courage, experience or both) to tell you what you really need to hear to further your career. Most companies are fearful of being sued. This is why you won’t get the full story, and on this site, my goal is to provide the business logic and hopefully we will both have fun in the process.
HRNasty will pull back the curtain, exposing how the hiring process really works, what drives the review process, and the real thinking behind a promotion or layoff.
This information can be leveraged to help you find a job, further your career and avoid the infamous CLM (Career Limiting Move). If you don’t know the rules of the game or how the referee’s are thinking, how can you win?
You can be the smartest and most qualified candidate, but if you do not know how to interview, you are probably not going to get the job.
You can be the least qualified but if you know how to interview, you have a good shot at landing the job.
Background: I have a degree in Industrial / Organizational Psychology, and the SPHR certification. I started my career with a Fortune 300 company in the Finance industry working in HR and then Training and Development. Working in Training and Development, I was given the training to deliver and facilitate classes on topics ranging from public speaking / facilitative leadership, diversity, 3-month long programs for manager, high performers, and exec training. Looking for a meritocracy where an individual would be judged on results I moved to a small technology start up leading the HR and Facilities group. This company eventually scaled to 300 plus employees with 6 offices in 4 countries. Most people would think it was the HIRING of these employees over an 8-year span that gave me the insight into the hiring process. It was the recruiters, HR department and the hiring managers DECLINING exponentially more candidates that gave me so much insight into the hiring process. Employees would be interviewed between 6-8 times before being offered a position. We declined a LOT of candidates to hire all those employees and saw a lot of mistakes made by candidates every day of the week. I want to share what I learned with 10 years in corporate America’s HR and Training and Development and my 10 years in technology start-ups.
I hope you find the information helpful. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to email me at Nasty@HRNasty.com.
