( She/Her/Hers) Say hello to Irene Chang, a California native who’s been enjoying the city ever since she relocated to the area for college. Irene is MindSpring’s newest Associate Recruiter, and she joins the team having just completed her master’s in journalism at Northwestern.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, Irene earned bachelor’s degrees in journalism and psychology, also from Northwestern. In her free time, she enjoys reading, cooking/baking, and traveling. She hopes to live in Taiwan someday. While her German Shepard is still in the Bay Area with her parents and sister, Irene’s two cats, Herman and Pebbles, keep her company in Chicago. Irene was first introduced to MindSpring while looking for opportunities in the legal field. But after talking to MindSpring, she decided to pursue a career in recruiting instead. Born on Thanksgiving Day, Irene brings her formidable writing and on-camera skills to MindSpring, and we’re grateful to have her on our team.
