Meet Our Team: Julie George

Julie George, Executive Recruiter

HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU WORKED AT GILMAN PARTNERS?

Twenty-two years.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT WORKING AT GILMAN PARTNERS?

I have two favorite things. I like the diversity of different searches - I feel like I learn something new all the time - and I love my colleagues!

IN WHICH AREAS OF RECRUITING DO YOU SPECIALIZE?

Engineering, manufacturing, operations and administration.

WHAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING PLACEMENTS YOU WERE INVOLVED WITH AT GILMAN PARTNERS? 

We placed a Senior Director of Manufacturing about a year ago. I recently worked with the individual to help him find a manager and he took the time after our kick-off meeting to express his gratitude to me and Gilman Partners for the professional process and for making sure it was the right fit on both sides. He loves his job and truly appreciated the "human element" that he experienced during the recruitment process.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO TODAY’S JOB SEEKERS?

Be patient and trust the process. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone and ask questions. 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?

Right now I am really passionate about volunteering for a non-profit called 4 Paws for Ability. They train Service Dogs for children with disabilities and veterans. Currently we are fostering our second Service Dog in Training. I absolutely love the dogs, but have really enjoyed learning about the impact that Service Dogs make on the entire family and have enjoyed helping educate the public while I have the pups out "socializing.”

IF YOU COULD ONLY EAT ONE FOOD FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Anything spicy – the spicier the better!
