S01E12: Ryan Sullivan - Training nerd, gamification fan, and global hiring manager at PPD
Does your organization do training? Probably. Is it any good?  Probably not.  Ryan Sullivan can tell you why, how to know, and how to make it better.  In this podcast the two of us geek out about learning and development, corporate culture drivers, and why I am SO EXCITED about his job.  When we get done with that Ryan spells out what it takes to get his attention as a global hiring manager for a pharmaceutical giant.  He gives clear and specific advice for both the interview and the application process, details you won't want to miss especially since - he's hiring! To learn more about working for/with Ryan check out the PPD Careers page. To get to know Ryan you can find him on LinkedIn.  Remember, though, don't stalk hiring managers - it's weird and they don't like it.  No matter how many "influencers" tell you to go directly to the hiring manager, it's a terrible idea.
