Ariele Rodriguez began working in the field of Human Resources in 2003 as a private sector recruiter. Since then, her professional experience has grown to include public and private sector work in classification and compensation, employee relations, labor relations, performance management, management training, adult education/college instruction, and workplace investigations.
She earned Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Communication Studies (thesis title Work Groups: Cohesion, Communication Satisfaction, and Productivity) from CSU Sacramento and holds the HR professional certification SHRM-CP.
Ariele's introduction to Human Resources came through a career aptitude exam in 1997 which said her responses were most like those of Human Resources Directors.
