Hi, I'm Irina, a small-town girl with an even smaller soul filled with love and warmth. I enjoy the little things in life be it a smile from a stranger or hugging a child. I strongly believe in the good and beautiful side of man. I love the sun, animals, children, a good read, flowers, nature, food and last but not least, people.
Besides the studies I completed - I am referring here to the Waldorf alternative high school that showed me how to see the world beyond appearances, and to my master studies at the Babes-Bolyai University (read more in the résumé) that fulfilled my hunger for knowledge - I got involved in various volunteering activities, mainly with children or young adults. Every minute spent in the company of the little ones filled my heart with joy and we, the volunteers, made their day more beautiful.
My journey as a recruiter started after graduation when I was a Volunteer Coordinator at an NGO that builds homes for families in need, Habitat for Humanity. Here I developed my leadership skills by coordinating 70 local volunteers (whom I personally recruited) in activities related to construction and back-office operations and also negotiated with all 12 teams of international volunteers the details of their arrival in Romania: budget, schedule, tasks, legal acts etc.
My real adventure as an IT recruiter started in 2014 with me being the only recruiter in a small IT company, Luminos Labs (older name Techromix Solutions). In little more than one year, I managed to double the size of the company from 30 employees to 60 employees. I recruited IT specialists, middle and top managers plus administrative and internship roles which were recruited not only locally from Cluj-Napoca, but from other Romanian cities too, plus Bulgaria and USA.
In spring 2015, I was being offered to help another NGO, Young Famous Orchestra with their volunteer management. Young Famous concept aims at bringing into Romanian cultural lifestyle a love of classical music through a modern approach of the traditional symphonic concert and it’s closeness to the young public. This is an opportunity for me to interact directly with orchestra musicians, as well as to help share the love of classical music in the local community.
