Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders

On May 21, Payscout People Operations Generalist Ebony McKnight PHR, SHRM-CP spoke at the Partnership UCLA Bruin Development Academy to students on, “How to Differentiate Yourself as a Candidate.” She was joined in the presentation by Payscout COO (and UCLA alum) Juan Sotelo.

The two spoke to UCLA students in the Banking & Finance session of the Bruin Development Academy, a course that covered strategies for success and skills mastery providing students the practical skillset to obtain a job in the banking and finance industries.

This was not the first time Ms. McKnight has shared insights on how to optimize one’s candidacy and land a dream job. The Human Resources subject-matter-expert regularly publishes inspirational posts on her LinkedIn account that are intended to help others find their personal passion, turn that passion into a profession, and lead the life they have always wanted.

This example of thought-leadership not only benefits the students who heard her story, it also aligns with Payscout’s Belief that every individual has a social responsibility to make the world a better place.

Yet another member of the Payscout team is leading by example and demonstrating what it means to give back. Way to go, Ebony!
