Meet Natalie DiLallo
Natalie DiLallo was a Senior Director of Packaging & Product Development at Guthy-Renker, until the company decided to move from marketing personnel oriented in cosmetic and skincare to requiring technical backgrounds in chemistry. Natalie realized her prior 20 years of experience and degree in marketing weren’t current.
Natalie was referred to the South Bay One-Stop Business & Career Center – Torrance and was enrolled at UCLA in a post baccalaureate certificate program in marketing with a concentration in digital marketing and graduated with straight A’s. Throughout the year she interviewed for a number of high-level positions and came close to being hired a few times, but wasn’t connecting with the right companies, until she was connected with Integrity Ingredients Corporation
Outcome and Benefits:
She was hired as Vice-President of Marketing & Strategic Planning. Enrolling at UCLA gave her the knowledge and confidence to compete in the job market, interview and land the job and to excel in the position.
“Sometimes we reach a point in life where our careers become mundane and meaningless. Experts in reinvention say we need to find agreement and consistency between what really matters to us and the goals we chase. For me personally this means really pushing toward growth and accepting who you are completely and realistically and how this translates into a viable career path.”
