Meet Carla and Camille of The Career Salon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carla and Camille.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Our dad was a part-time barber growing up. People young and old came into the barbershop for haircuts and wisdom. It was a melting pot of topics and you could even take a chance on dominoes or checkers. In the barbershop, there were seasoned people giving soapbox (sometimes hilarious) speeches, sports rhetoric, and advice from life experiences.

We also went to the hair salon with our mom to get the proverbial “tea” on celebrity or neighborhood news, fashion trends, etiquette, and a new style for the week. Those environments were so interesting, as they celebrated and discussed so many things in one single place.

We decided to create a virtual space similar to the barbershop and salons we grew up in. The place where there is NO filter, we rid the internet of ridiculous interview and career advice, and go behind the scenes of the recruiting and human resources functions.

Together we are known as the HR Twins, owners of The Career Salon, LLC with a combined 32+ plus years of experience. We co-host The Career Salon Podcast w/ The HR Twins, a weekly Podcast covering issues related to career mobility, diversity, and inclusion, human capital and leadership and are content creators for The Career Salon social media channels including Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and www.thecareersalon.com.

Has it been a smooth road?
Of course, we are not exempt from those startup aches and pains with the hard work that it takes to build an audience and sustain a business. Our efforts are still ongoing to build The Career Salon as our primary day-to-day operation. We understand that for most companies including ours, that takes time, but we have found comfort in the feedback from our audience that we are making an impact on the way people think about employment and the role they play in their own success. That makes any type of struggle worth it.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with The Career Salon – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
The Career Salon, LLC is a hub for Career & HR-related content via the web, social media, and podcasts. We provide consultative services to individuals making career transitions, along with small to large businesses in the development or evolution of their HR departments and leadership teams. We are proud that we have a platform and opportunity to say the things others are afraid to say regarding what’s really going in the workforce. We provide relatable content to our audience about their everyday experiences along with pertinent information that may be an HR department should have provided but missed the mark. Being twins is not that unique nowadays, but being twins in HR is something special. Having specialties that span all aspects of Human Resources is a standout and we love that it elevates our voices to make people more comfortable with the idea of HR, which often intimidates people.
