I've been in contact with the team at JBC ever since I started my career in NYC over 6 years ago. Since then, I've transitioned from fashion to agency life and then to beauty. I've always appreciated that the JBC team has kept in touch and approached placements with thoughtful consideration based on what I'm looking for at any given moment. I most recently was working with Shayna and Jackie, both of whom were super responsive and flexible with my schedule (and last- minute changes).
They have a great roster of clients, so if you're a job-seeking looking to make a move, I'd highly recommend checking in with their team.
I specifically want to say how great it was working with Rina during my job search. While helping me with negotiations, Rina was always extremely communicative and supportive. Something that really stood out to me was when she offered to do prep phone calls for each round of negotiations so I'd be ready for my interview with whomever it was. Amazing 5-star support, which led to an offer from the company. I'm excited to work with Rina again in the future.
After being terminated from a position that I loved, I reached out to JBC for industry guidance and to help land a job within the fashion industry here in New York. I had a friend recommend that I contact JBC for help in finding my next position. The process could not have been smoother, and that is all thanks to Samantha.
Samantha reached out to me regarding a potential opportunity on a Wednesday. By Thursday night, I had interviewed with the company and accepted the position. Samantha was so helpful. She understood my circumstance, did not pass judgement when I explained my termination, and worked diligently to assist me in accepting the role.
Thank you JBC and THANK YOU SAMANTHA for assisting me in my job search. The experience could not have been more amazing.
I had an interview with JBC after applying for a position that looked interesting that fit my background (specifically with Katie Erlandson), and it was one of the most unpleasant experience I've ever had. The position required relocation, but the whole time, she accused me of not wanting to relocate (I've never been called a liar in an interview before. Why would I have wasted my time applying for a job if I wasn't interested?). On top of that, I've been looking for a job during the pandemic, but she was so much more focused on my employment gap (due to the pandemic) than my skills or background. She did not seem to care about my background, skills, or qualifications or if I was a fit for the role.
Based on my one experience, this is a recruiting agency that just cares about filling spots and getting commission. They have don't have sympathy for the job-seeker, or treating them with respect during the job search. If all the recruiters at JBC are like this, I cannot recommend them at all.
Working with JBC recruiters was a great experience. After sharing my resume, Jordan Strauss matched me with an open role that was an excellent fit for my interests and background. Jordan guided me through the process and helped me navigate each step. I would definitely recommend for anyone looking to take the next step in their career.
