About Me

I'm Iris and I started my recruiting career on the agency side at Robert Half. I knew I wanted to become a recruiter around my last year of college and thought working at a staffing agency would be great training in the recruiting world. IT WAS! After about a year on the agency side, I went in house as a Sr. Recruiter at a company called Internet Brands. I really honed in my recruiting skill-set there and figured I would work hard and eventually transition over to fashion, which is where I really wanted to be. After almost two years at Internet Brands, I decided it was time to make the leap and I applied for a role at Nasty Gal. I got the job a week later! I've been here ever since (almost 5 years) having a blast! Not only do I focus on recruiting top talent and managing a team, but I also have my hands in talent development which I feel is the best part of my job. Last year, I also launched my own company, FindersKeepers Talent. FindersKeepers Talent helps companies find talent they want to keep and helps talent find companies that are going to be the best match for their work lifestyle. I have a lot of experience with "millennials" because I am one! I'm all about keeping it real and having fun. At the end of the day, your career is your life's work; if you're not having fun while doing it, what's the point?

Your dream job is out there.

"Speaking with Irish was very helpful. We went over everything I wanted to talk about and she was very attentive and answered all the questions as best as she could. I appreciated the fact that she gave me great tips on how to better market myself to potential employers and looked over my resume/LinkedIn.

"Iris was fantastic in every way! She was extremely responsive the minute I booked my session and touched on everything that I wanted to. She was so willing to help and address any questions I had. I felt immediately comfortable opening up to her. Not only do we share a passion for recruiting but a passion for people and with that being said, we bonding immediately. She helped me nail down both short term and long term goals and within minutes followed up with some book recommendations for career growth. I'd recommend a session with her in a heartbeat! "
