Melanie Allen HR Analyst /Compensation and ClassificationTidewater Community College

Marlo Calloway asked me to write a recommendation on her behalf, and I am delighted to do so. I first met Marlo in the fall of 2010 when I began working as a Credentialing Specialist in the Office of Academic and Student Affairs at Tidewater Community College in Norfolk, Virginia. At the time, Marlo served as a Human Resources Analyst and helped me collect adjunct faculty hiring paperwork and helped prepare material for my faculty credentialing files.
Marlo had an active role in ensuring all newly hired adjunct faculty hiring paperwork was submitted in a timely manner —and these number over 1,000—are up to date. This job requires not only in-depth knowledge of human resources, but coordinating with deans from multi-campuses and great judgment.
What I think will impress you about Marlo is her work ethic, enthusiasm, and ability to get along with everybody. She is one of the most enthusiastic and cheerful people I know, and she is eager to take on any task assigned her. I have the greatest respect for Marlo, both personally and professionally, and believe that you will not regret working with her.less

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a part of the pilot HRSHRM Mentor Program.

Marlo did an outstanding job putting the program together and creating an atmosphere that was comfortable yet structured fostering a culture that provided an opportunity for individuals - mentor and mentees alike- to evolve both professionally and personally. I applaud Marlo for her diligence and support and recommend both Marlo and the HRSHRM Mentor Program.
