Show Notes

Irina is the former CEO of CareerBuilder, a leading global, end-to-end human capital solutions company. Irina’s family came to this country as refugees from Ukraine with $270 in the 1980s, and she (and they) have built not only a wonderful life but an impressive career. We discuss her childhood as a latchkey kid, and how her independence, ownership, and willingness to fail have played integral roles in each ecosystem she has been an essential part of.


Leave something for BTO community: The combination of ignorance (or willingness to be/appear that way) and persistence is a potent combination.


Ask something of BTO community: As you are making hiring decisions, push your thinking on who has and what are the right traits for which to hire. Don’t judge a book by its cover, magic can happen with diverse teams (in the myriad of ways diversity can be interpreted).
