Tia Halstead comes to TU with contagious optimism and a wealth of HR knowledge. Over the years she has worked in recruiting, compensation & benefits, and Human Resource Information System (HRIS).
In her current role Tia works as a Recruiter in the Office of Human Resources (OHR).
With a smile Tia says, “For me Towson University is an employer of choice. It’s known for its high academic standards. It’s a privilege to work here and help build on the mission of the University.”
So far, she has had the opportunity to communicate with a lot of staff by email and phone, but she hopes to ‘put a name with the face’ very soon.
“I enjoy meeting the staff and students. Everyone has been so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating,” Tia states.
As much as Tia enjoys her job, she wants to do a lot more than extend employment offers at TU. She hopes to take advantage of all that the university has to offer: academics, arts and athletics.
Tia is currently studying for the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) Certification, with plans to enroll in the Human Resources Development Master’s program in 2013. She is excited for the opportunity to further her professional development and the tuition remission is an added bonus!
Outside of work, Tia finds time to participate in various activities. She relaxes with DIY home projects, interior decorating, gardening and traveling. She also keeps a busy schedule attending her son’s sporting activities and definitely considers herself a “Basketball Mom.”
Tia shares, “Maybe one day my son will play for Towson University; I’m here to stay!”
