Cam (he, him, his) helps professionals feel safe, inspired, and fulfilled by their work. He understands that in order to accomplish this, motivated individuals need to explore their own personal values, core aptitudes, and the types of workplace cultures that will be a catalyst for their success. Cam believes intentionality is key to career progression and he is focused on coaching his clients to be intentional in their goal-setting and decision-making.
Cam has spent the majority of his career in Human Resources and Talent Acquisition for industries including consulting, technology, marketing, and the non-profit space. He has worked with a variety of multicultural teams to build best-in-class employer brands that told a human story. Even before his career in Human Resources, Cam was always a storyteller and connector of people. He encourages his clients to embrace a non-linear career path, understanding that often the themes of our stories will guide us to our next best step. Cam’s own non-linear career path includes working as a photographer, filmmaker, operations manager, and of course, working as a coach and consultant.
Leveraging his work as an internal recruiter and recruiting manager, Cam helps his career coaching clients understand how recruiters think and what they look for in a top candidate. Cam has conducted hundreds of interviews and delivered countless job offers to qualified candidates. This has helped him become a specialist in interview and salary negotiation coaching.
Cam also runs his own talent acquisition consulting agency called Diya Talent Solutions. His agency specializes in helping small businesses and startups develop their employee value proposition and adopt human-centered recruiting processes and strategies. He helps his clients focus on recruiting talented individuals that are growth-minded and will add to the company culture while providing a highly positive candidate experience.
Cam holds a Master of Human Resources and Industrial Relations with a focus on Talent Acquisition and Professional Development. He also holds a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Psychology with a focus on Industrial/Organizational Psychology. Cam attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for both of his degrees. He is proud to be an Illini!
When he is not working with clients, Cam loves spending time outdoors with family and friends. Sometimes he enjoys relaxing between two trees in his hammock listening to his favorite tunes. Other times, he is highly active and likes to go on runs and hikes, and he is an avid skier in the winter. His home base is San Diego, although he enjoys traveling to explore new places and cultures and eating cuisine from around the world. For the past two years, Cam has been working as a digital nomad, living throughout the United States and Latin America. After spending the majority of his career working from an office, he now makes the most of his ability to work remotely, harmonizing his love for travel and his passion for his work.
