Roberta Mueller

Co-founder, HR Expert

A founding partner of LeadUp Career, Roberta Mueller has been in the recruitment trenches for many years, sourcing and interviewing literally tens of thousands of candidates. Like many of her counterparts, she became frustrated with traditional selection processes.  These processes weren’t leading her to find the best candidates to fill the role, because the resumes submitted did a poor job of aligning the candidates’ experiences and accomplishments to the actual job.  As a result, Roberta set out to improve the process, which led to the co-creation of LeadUp Career.  LeadUp is a program that easily helps candidates build a resume that aligns their qualifications to each job, which, in turn, significantly helps recruiters find the best fit for the position. Finally, an approach that works!

Roberta is the vice president of human resources at Forthright.  She has held executive positions in several professional sectors, including insurance, business services and consulting. She served as president of a human resources consulting firm, where she provided HR solutions to companies representing a variety of industries.

Roberta holds a Master of Arts degree in human resource development from the University of St. Thomas. She is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and earned a certificate in Leadership Development from the Association for Talent Development. She is also certified in the Lominger Leadership Architect program and holds a training certificate from Development Dimensions International.
