GLI SPOTLIGHTS CARLOS RIAZ
Carlos Riaz is the Project Coordinator for the New York, NY market. After graduating college with a degree in Human Resource Management, Carlos spent 4 years working in the HR department of a large law firm in New York. During his tenure in human resources, Carlos discovered his favorite aspect of the job was his interaction with the attorneys. His “people skills” and his love for the legal arena were two characteristics that drew Carlos to legal recruiting. His desire to work with a top-notch, well-respected recruiting firm where he would have an opportunity to assist attorneys in reaching their career goals led him to GLI.
Carlos’ human resource background and law firm experience assist him in coaching attorneys throughout their job search process. Carlos takes a personal interest in helping each candidate determine what their “perfect law firm job” is and then strive to locate that opportunity. “Every candidate’s “dream job” is different, so it is imperative that I listen intently to get a full understanding of what he/she is looking for.
Carlos was attracted to GLI because of the firm’s principled and progressive methodology. “I remain impressed by the level of personal attention GLI recruiters gives their candidates. These attorneys genuinely have representatives working on their behalf in the marketplace; people going the extra mile to locate opportunities that not just met but exceeded their expectations each and every time. THAT is recruiting at its best”.
Carlos is an avid arts buff, so when he’s not working with candidates, you can usually find him checking out the newest exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or the latest opera at the Metropolitan Opera, an interest he shares with Maria, his wife of 7 years. Carlos and Maria also stay very busy with their twin 3-year-old sons, Javier and Miguel.
