Amber Drake
My story

I’m Amber, a passionate and enthusiastic HR Professional with a passion for talent acquisition. I grew up on the Northwest side of Detroit, MI in a small suburb called North Rosedale Park. I graduated from Oakland University where I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Resources Development. Recently, I graduated from Central Michigan University, where I received my MBA with a concentration in Human Resources Management. I have always wanted to make a positive impact in people’s lives and my career allows me to do just that. I am always seeking to help professionals find their next challenging opportunity and dream job. I am a firm believer in self-development and never settling. Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family and I also enjoy cooking and reading.

how I got started

I was attending Oakland University working towards the completion of my undergraduate degree when I started working in the energy and utility industry as a Co-op. I was working in the Talent Acquisition department and was also fortunate enough to complete developmental projects in other areas in HR. I did this to gain hands-on experience and a thorough understanding of what career path I wanted to pursue. I quickly realized that I loved relationship building and partnering with different business units to help them achieve continued success through matching qualified candidates to their open positions. I now have my dream job in the automotive industry doing what I love.

What I love most about working in Southeast Michigan

I love the different cultures, the different restaurants, and the diverse community, I also love the fact that there is always something to do and beautiful sights to see. There is so much diversity in Southeast Michigan and diversity is always beautiful!
