  • I was pleased with Jacqueline’s professional manner and expertise throughout the recruitment process from initial contact, face to face meetings, interview preparation and offer negotiations.   I appreciated the 3-month post placement aftercare I received from Jacqueline. She maintained regular contact with me to ensure there were no issues and I was satisfied with my new role.  I would recommend The Essence Group.

  • The Essence Group has been extremely responsive and resourceful in helping us identify and hire some great candidates. Jacqueline was very professional and obtained information from our executive team prior to beginning her search.  Her goal was to ascertain the organization's culture and what we envisioned as a suitable fit for the positions. She worked with us to arrive at a fair and competitive compensation package for each of the successful candidates.  In addition, Jacqueline has a thorough understanding of the current market conditions, as a result offers highly competitive fees.  I recommended The Essence Group.

  • Jacqueline helped me with maintaining focus and achieving short and long-term goals.  I loved how she challenged me to push myself in a way that allowed me to feel comfortable at the same time. She gave me a real sense of her personal desire to help me succeed. Jacqueline  helped me explore and understand  my personal trait giving me the tools to overcome things that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember.  I would recommend Jacqueline based on her unwavering commitment and openness. In addition, I saw a significant rise in my performance once we started working together, and have gained long term tools to help me in all my career goals.

  • I worked with her several years ago before she opened her own firm. At the time she was working for a larger recruitment company and I quickly realized after she left her role there, that she was what brought success and not the recruitment firm she was working for. I sought Jacqueline out when we were seeking a hard to fill position in a remote working location in Canada. Not only is this position difficult to fill based on location, but there is also an extremely small pool of candidates all together. She has brought forward top candidates for this role and worked relentlessly and with perseverance through very difficult placements.

  • I started working with Jacqueline during my job search in the summer of 2018. She put forward positions that would not only be a good fit based on my experience, but she went past that to get to know the culture of the companies and making sure it was a good fit for me. She was always available to answer questions and gave me detailed feedback quickly after my interviews. She was honest, fair, and I felt connected with her immediately. Once the offer was presented, she made sure that I had everything I required to start my new position. Jacqueline is truly is one of the best 🙂
