Ilana Popliger

Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist

A Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist at AY Talent, Ilana comes to the team with a lot of experience.

After going back to school and graduating with a Certificate in Human Resources from York University, her first opportunities in recruiting were for accounting and finance roles. Her two worlds had collided. Ilana later branched out to be more of a generalist and continues her passion for connecting people with opportunities and advancements at AY Talent.
