Yared Salgado is a first generation Latina in her family to attend a 4-year University. She was raised in Inglewood, CA and attended a private all girls High School, St. Mary’s Academy, which was an interesting dynamic growing up. However, her high school experience and her focus on the Lord until this day has shaped her to be the woman she is in her personal and professional career thus far. It has not been easy but it definitely has not impossible.
Yared is currently a Human Resources Generalist better known as a Strategic Business Partner, at the World’s Largest Food Company, Nestlé USA. She received her B.A from Mount St. Mary’s University and her Masters in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix. After her initial career path in the Hospitality industry with Hilton Hotels, she ventured into Human Resources as a College Recruiter for 4 ½ years with Nestlé which has been one of the most rewarding roles thus far in her career.
In the recruiting role, Yared had the opportunity to travel all across the country, coach college students, recruit rock star talent, as well as train and lead college recruiting teams all across the country to ensure the Nestlé brand is well represented in multiple ways. Currently, she has taken the role of an HR Generalist supporting the Sales organization in the Southeast and Southwest regions. This new adventure will give her the opportunity to drive change in the organization as it relates to HR strategies and looks forward the opportunities that will come from this role. On a fun note, she is currently challenging herself to learn more about NFL and support 49er fans!
