About Miguel Corona
Hispanic Talent Memo (HTM) is published by Miguel A. Corona. It’s also the blog of AdMentis Hispanic Talent Solutions, an independent consulting firm aimed at assisting organizations with undestanding and recruiting Hispanic professional talent, particularly at the college graduate level.
The results from the 2010 U.S. Census indicated that the Hispanic population experienced significant changes over the last decade. Hispanics accounted for more than half of the overall population growth in the United States and now make up 16% of the U.S. population. Consequently, as more Hispanics enter the workforce, there’s a need to understand how their cultural and social experiences impact their job choice and career decisions.
Miguel began publishing HTM to discuss Hispanic American culture and how it may impact Hispanics in an organizational environment. Using this communication platform, HTM’s goal is to help increase the understanding of how Hispanic social and cultural factors influence Hispanics’ professional success and career choices. By helping share this information, Miguel hopes to help organizations enhance the recruitment and development of Hispanic professionals.
Miguel’s professional experience has crossed two industries: corporate America and higher education. He gained first-hand knowledge about Hispanic college students working as a career advisor at the University of Texas at El Paso, one of the largest Hispanic serving institutions in the United States. Miguel has also developed strategies for attracting college talent by directing the College Recruitment operations for Nestle, USA. As the recruitment director for Security Capital Group, Miguel designed and implemented all facets of a successful college recruitment program.
A first-generation American, Miguel has earned a Doctorate of Management in Organizational Leadership and is an active member of several Hispanic professional and community organizations. For the last nine years, Miguel has also been an active faculty member for several online colleges and universities. His on-going research interests focus on Hispanics in the workforce.
