After spending twenty years recruiting attorneys at two of the top Silicon Valley – based law firms (Gunderson Dettmer LLP and Fenwick & West LLP), Julieta felt like it was easy as walking across the street to switch to legal recruiting from hiring director at Fenwick. She is by all standards a self-described industry dinosaur who obviously (NOT) began her law firm career at age 18. Having done partner recruiting at Fenwick since 2010, Julieta might “literally” know everyone in the industry. And as the former president of Bay Area Legal Recruiters Association, it’s like calling an old friend when she reaches out to hiring managers at all the top Silicon Valley firms.
While she can’t believe she is still working with lawyers (no offense to her colleagues, former colleagues, and husband) she loves the joy in hiring the right people for the right Firm, and brings that enthusiasm to Whistler as she becomes an industry “matchmaker.”
