About Erika

I am an in house recruiter who supports a variety of corporate functions. I have a lot of experience in writing resumes, interviewing, negotiating offers and all aspects of the job search process. I received my degree in Economics from UCLA. The majority of my experience has been supporting legal, HR, IT, finance and global supply chain functions although I've supported retail and sales/marketing functions too. I write a monthly Linked In blog on recruiting tips.
