With more than 15 years of corporate recruiting experience, Monica Jones joined the School in October as associate director of employer relations and diversity initiatives. She works with UC Davis MBA and MPAc students on their career development and links them to companies and a network of contacts that best fit their professional goals.

Jones was previously the senior manager of talent acquisition, diversity and inclusion at Deloitte, where she implemented early identification and diversity strategies while leading a team of campus recruiting professionals on the West Coast. Her experience also includes staff consultant and university relations positions at Health Net, SAP Labs and Bank of America.

“I joined the Graduate School of Management because this is a great opportunity to share my industry knowledge with students,” Jones said. “I was impressed by the focus that the team has on preparing students and the one-on-one attention that we provide. I look forward to bringing many of the relationships that I have fostered over the years to create more career and internship opportunities for our students.”

“Monica’s extensive network and knowledge of best practices for diversity and inclusion will be invaluable to our team and community,” said Chris Dito, senior director of career development.

Jones is also serving as the School’s interim director of corporate relations while a national search is being conducted. She is working closely with visiting lecturers Joe DiNunzio and Marc Lowe, and Professor David Woodruff, to ensure the success and experience of MBA student teams working on Integrated Management Projects for corporate sponsors.

Jones graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in psychology. She started her recruiting career in college working on summer residency programs to increase the rate of under-represented students at the University of Michigan.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
