Giulia comes to Availability from the San Francisco Peninsula. She’s been a recruiter for 10 years with a focus in Tech and Finance and Accounting. Her favorite part about recruiting is seeing a “happy marriage” between client and candidate. When she is out of the office, you can usually find her at a pool training for her next race. And, out of the water, you’ll find her and her fiancé eating well.
