________________________________________________________

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.”

Interview motivation anthem:

"Eminem “Lose Yourself” – “You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime.”

testimonials about this recruiter:

I was impressed by Julieta from my first review of her profile on Linkedin and on the Whistler website as an expert in Bay Area recruiting. I saw that she recognized successful recruiting as akin to being a good "matchmaker" and ensuring the right people end up at the right place. As her profile really resonated with me, I reached out to her and the rest was history!
She was very responsive and set up a call with me right away to learn more about me as a candidate, the work I had done and what I was looking for in a future role. She streamlined and tailored the entire application and interview process to best suit my unique needs and goals, provided me with insight into potential interviewers and how to best market myself, as well as what to look for in a firm written offer and of course, made herself available for my many questions while remaining empathetic and supportive.
As a Canadian educated and trained lawyer lateraling to the Bay Area - she made the entire recruiting process painless and when I told her my goal was to move asap with a great position in hand - she made it happen and for that I am very grateful. Moreover, her help did not stop when I received and signed my offer with Latham & Watkins - she continued to guide me in relation to ending my term with my previous firm, beginning bar prep, and the administrative fyis of being a foreign trained lawyer moving to California. In short, Julieta went above and beyond in all respects and I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat.

US Manager of Attorney Recruiting at Orrick

I can recommend Julieta without reservation.  Throughout my job search, she was extremely responsive and gave my (many) questions a great deal of thought.  She also has excellent market knowledge and connections in the Bay Area.  Her Bay Area expertise is especially valuable as I went to school on the East Coast  and was less familiar with the West Coast EC/VC firms.  Lastly, I thought of Julieta as a strategic partner, rather than someone trying to sell me on any particular outcome or firm, which earned my trust and respect.

I recently wrapped up a job search process with Julieta, and am utterly and completely impressed with Julieta. She made my job search and interview process, which is normally frustrating and daunting, so streamlined and manageable, to the point it was downright enjoyable.
Not only is Julieta a consummate professional with a deep and fulsome understanding of the market (including its dynamics and its players), but she is also unfailingly kind and empathetic. She took the time to truly get to know me and to help me figure out what I actually wanted for the next phase of my career. From day one, Julieta completely dedicated herself and her valuable time to get me to that next phase, from answering my many and varied questions, to allaying any of my concerns and doubts, to providing me with key insights into firms and its personnel, to helping me process all the information I was receiving from firms.
Julieta went above and beyond in all respects, ensuring that I was prepared for my interviews and that I was thinking pragmatically and strategically throughout the entire process.

As a professional, I genuinely value working with other excellent professionals. Julieta is an excellent professional and an outstanding recruiter. In addition to her hands-on in-house experience as a lateral recruiter at Fenwick, she has a complete view of the tech landscape and a deep knowledge of California based-firms. Further, her business acumen coupled with her well-rounded nature (and high EQ) allows her to keenly partner with clients to identify and advance their professional and personal goals for successful long-term fits.

I am so thrilled to begin my new position at Latham & Watkins, and due to Julieta’s expertise and guidance, know this will be an excellent next step for me professionally and an excellent fit for me personally. Julieta was more than a top-notch and keenly intelligent recruiter: she was a negotiator, a sounding board, an advisor, a quasi-therapist and a true ally. I cannot thank her enough for all she did for me!
