Meet Gabrielle Stone, this month’s Featured YPAL Member!
What is your day job?
I am the Director of Talent Acquisition at Signature Healthcare.
What is the best part of your job?
It is intensely rewarding to connect individuals with life-changing career opportunities! The excitement I witness once a candidate lands their dream job is one of the sweetest and most humbling blessings. It’s also amazing to connect with new people and hear different life stories.
How are you managing social distancing?
Managing social distancing in the Talent Acquisition industry has gifted us the ability to explore different approaches with engaging talent. Recruitment is continuously evolving, and the current climate has shifted us to utilize technology in new ways and stretch our imagination beyond our previous strategies. Fortunately, we have ensured the candidate experience remains top priority while also following safety precautions to protect our residents, employees and candidates.
Why did you join YPAL?
Joining YPAL provided new opportunities to network with a diverse community of professionals and trailblazers in Louisville. These experiences lessened my fears of networking and benefited my professional and personal life with building strong business networks and developing my career. I am thankful to pay it forward and support others who are new to networking as a YPAL Ambassador.
What is the best career advice?
Lean into discomfort and embrace challenges as they come. The way to defeat unexpected obstacles is to pivot and adjust, don’t give up!
