Mary Despe - Certified Diversity Sourcing Professional (CDSP)

With nearly 20 years as a recruiter, Iโ€™ve seen the hiring process from both the candidate & hiring manager sides of the table. Hence, Iโ€™m able to bring a unique, ‘insider’s perspective to working professionals who come to me for guidance in advancing their careers.

I am an expert who has helped global professional services firms and tech companies build high-performing teams.

Prior to becoming a career coach, I worked as an HR Business Analyst. I realized it wasnโ€™t what I was passionate about, so transitioned to a more fulfilling career path.
