Weslie Ricks

Technical Sourcer

Meta (formerly Facebook)

As a technical sourcer, I am responsible for engaging talent to join Meta and to make an impact. I have a heavy focus on diversity and inclusion, bringing more diverse people to Meta and ensuring they feel safe and supported here.

I get to bring in the people who are going to build the metaverse!

I work remotely, spend a lot of time sourcing candidates through various avenues, talking to them about why they should join Meta, and working on side projects.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, a Master's degree in Human Resource Management, as well as over five years experience in recruiting.

I have just begun speaking engagements and will continue to participate in more. All of my consulting and speaking opportunities have been focused on Neurodiversity.

I love to bake, play Fortnite online video game, and take care of my 40+ plants!

Do the best you can until you know better. When you know better, do better.
