“AGF Rebar Inc. began working with Gina Matteson and GEMTEK in September 2020. Since then, Gina has been an integral in helping us fill 8 key positions with excellent talent. Gina’s work is beyond words! Her fantastic approach to customer service and keen eye for detail has developed the strong working relationship that AGF has with GEMTEK today. Our favourite aspect of working with Gina is her proactiveness in helping us solve our recruitment needs, especially in light of COVID-19 and the problematic labour market. Gina is always full of energy and ready to take on any challenge! We would highly recommend Gina and GEMTEK to any organization that needs a solution to their recruitment problems. She is really “Business Focused and People Driven”!”

"I would be very confident and pleased to highly recommend Gina for both job seekers and employers!
On the personal level, Gina is a very pleasant person to work with, she is very good listener, honest, straight forward, clear, positive, patient and supportive. She is very passionate about HR field, when you interact with her you can see clearly that she truly puts her soul into what she is doing.
Gina is very motivated and driven by the achievement she feels as well as the satisfaction and appreciation she sees in the eyes of both the employer and the successful candidate.
On the professional level, she is very different and absolutely knows what the core of HR is. “When hiring, hire based on character. Skills can be taught but character is what they are” I strongly believe that this is exactly what Gina is doing, which, in my perspective, is the most important factor in a successful match between candidates and opportunities. Unlike most of “recruiters” nowadays, Gina does not Just depend on some software or couple of keywords mentioned on a job description or resume to make a match, which can be easily worked around and usually ends up with disappointment, or just bombard employers with many resumes aiming that one of them attracts attention and gets picked up. She dives deep in what is written from both sides and read very carefully what lies between the lines, thanks to her deep knowledge in the field, long experience, attention to details and the ability to see the whole picture. Then she concludes the key factors of success for the role considering all different factors and the core strengths of each candidate and makes a match, she also gets this match score verified during the screening calls / interviews.
Gina provides clarity that keeps job seekers focused and saves time and efforts they waste because a recruiter is simply trying his/her luck, she also guides applicants professionally and clearly through the process till the end.
On the other side, Gina saves the most valuable resource for organizations which is time. Her methodology and selection criteria increases applicant's opportunities to succeed in their new roles which positively affects employee's productivity, satisfaction, engagement and retention; which are part of the most essential indicators of a successful organization and a good work place.
Keep the good work and the positive spirits up Gina, you deserve all the best!"

She always took an interest in the person not just a number in a company. This is by far the best recruiter I have worked within the industry she always stands by her word.

“What a difference working with a professional such as Gina can make. Constant communication, kept me informed and up to date with client data, decision-making deadlines, next steps, etc. From the onset, I knew this working relationship would be different. Can't say enough about her follow up actions, and her well-established relationships with her various customers. That type of synergy is earned over time and speaks volumes about how her dedication equals results”
