Chimelle (BS '05) - 03/26/2012
Chimelle (BS '05) was invited to interview with a large manufacturing company for an HR position located in Nashville, TN. Leveraging all her Kelley strenghts, she looked at the list of Kelley Alumni Leaders and found that Jose (MBA ’07) worked for the same company as a Strategy Manager at the corporate headquarters in Columbus, IN. Chimelle reached out to Jose via Kelley inCircle and they talked for an hour by phone. Jose empowered Chimelle with key insights into the company’s interview process - what she could expect, why the interview was structured a certain way, and why certain people are part of the interview day. He even called some of his contacts in Nashville to put in a good word. Chimelle was more prepared for the interview than other candidates because of her insider perspective. She sailed through it and was offered the job the next day!
