Why are you doing this HRNasty?

I am a Human Resources Executive and your fly on the wall in those closed-door conversations. I absolutely know the corporate game is NOT fair. Why is one resume read and another recycled? Why does one person receive a promotion and another doesn’t get a job offer? My give back to the community is to reveal strategies to help you land jobs, advance your career, and avoid CLMs (career-limiting moves). I explain the unspoken rules of the game and expose what HR and management really think. I am the HR guy who exposes what other HR professionals know but won’t admit to.   


ADJ.:  An unreal maneuver of incredible technique

Usage: “He has a nasty forkball”

Early in his career, HRNasty led Training and Development sessions for a Fortune 300 company. These centered on management and executive training. Since then he has led HR teams in many companies. He made the Best Place to Work lists eight times, including two first-place finishes. After over a decade of experience in Corporate America HR and another decade in technology companies, he is no longer keeping his lips sealed. Why? Candidates think they know why they were hired. The real problem is that candidates don’t know why they were declined. Companies, managers, and HR are afraid of being sued so you don’t receive straight honest feedback. Chances are, you have been declined for a job after your resume received a two-second view. Maybe you have sent in 50 resumes with no response. Now, through his hiring experience, he’s going to help you reach enlightenment.

Corporate life is a game. Win it!

Most of us haven’t had the opportunity to sit down with someone who really knows how corporate life works. How can you be successful in a game when no one has sat down with you to explain the rules? Most of us think the only referee in our corporate life is our manager. This couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many gatekeepers and judges. 

Learn the rules and the rule makers in one company or one department and they can change in the next company or next department within the same company. I will share with you how to decipher and interpret the rules both written and unspoken. 

Everything you should have learned in school but they didn’t teach

What you read about on HRNasty.com is not taught in schools or Corporate America. Yes, you may have had a session on interviewing in school, but those professors didn’t work in Corporate America. They didn’t hire 1000’s of real-world employees. More importantly, they haven’t declined thousands. HRNasty wants you to be successful. He wants to break the stigma of traditional HR. From interns to Executives, HRNasty has heard thousands of requests for job interviews, raises, new opportunities, and promotions.  HRNasty knows why you were granted a raise and why you were denied. Those lessons, he now shares with you.

I don’t give a shit about your feelings. I am telling you what your manager won’t

Because his identity isn’t in the mix, he can afford to give you 100% of the truth and, the extra 10%. Most companies will not provide the reasoning behind their action or lack of action for fear of litigation. Many managers lack the professional courage and/or experience to tell you what you need to hear to further your career. His goal is to provide the business logic to help you understand why certain practices exist and Nasty ways to overcome these unspoken rules. You might think what you read here is unfair or wrong. Cry about it. Accept the truth. Start advancing your career.

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 someone who is good at something. “He has a nasty forkball”.
