Meet Gina Ireland, Hire Up Staffing Service’s Executive Recruiting Specialist. Gina is a Fresno native who graduated from California State University, Fresno with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. Her recruiting career started in Legal Staffing for Law Firms in Orange County. When Gina moved back to the Central Valley she joined the Hire Up team as Recruiting Manager, after three years in that seat Gina was promoted to Executive Recruiting Specialist as she showed her true mastery with both Clients and Candidates. The satisfaction of making the “perfect match” for both the candidate and the client is what appeals to her and keeps Gina pushing forward to ensure happiness and success for both sides.
Gina is a true Sagittarius; Optimistic, restless, progressive, loves the outdoors, adventurous (basically any positive characteristic you can think of). On her down time she enjoys cooking and going outside for a run. Gina loves exploring the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains where she calls home, but tries to venture out to Monterey and San Francisco as often as she can. She also loves to spend her time watching documentaries – she regularly tries to get her 21 year old daughter on-board with documentations too, but has not had much luck yet as she just laughs when Gina tells her “documentaries help educate your mind and they are important to watch so you can include yourself in intellectual conversation’s at a dinner party”.
Gina truly does brighten the workplace with her personality and passion for her work, while her co-workers think the world of her, so do her candidates and clients. We are excited to continue watching Gina grow in this new role as she puts all her efforts on the focus of Executive Candidate Placement which is truly her niche.
