Shhh, don’t tell our president, Julie Labrie yet, but we’re quietly uploading this blog post to celebrate her nomination for the Top Recruiter awards!
This is an industry-leading initiative that is recognizing Canada’s top 100 recruiters, based on recommendations from companies and candidates. According to the Top Recruiter website, the criteria being examined focuses on, “displaying exemplary professionalism: highly trusted & consistently outperforming with genuine passion for the industry.” We couldn’t agree more that Julie embodies these values.
The top winners will be announced on Thursday January 31 at 2pm EST and you can register watch it online. Here is the link:
In the meantime, we wanted to take a moment to share some of the heart-felt testimonials that clients submitted for this nomination. Check out Julie’s full profile for these awards here.
“Julie is a star in her field. Not only does she seek to understand the full requirements of the position, but she is super-personable. A delight to deal with. I am also impressed with the articles she writes and the insights that she has. I think she is rare in the recruitment field. She is also bilingual. Too bad I am not.”
– Brian Brown, School Board’s Co-Operative Inc. (Vacancy filled: Executive Assistant)
“Julie takes pride on a job well done. She is detailed oriented and ensures she understands the job requirements before presenting candidates. Julie is in tune with what is happening in the recruiting industry and continues to stay on the cutting edge of thing. She listens and provides great recommendations on trends, recruiting technologies and retention techniques. We very much enjoy working with Julie and we strongly recommend her as a Top Recruiter.”
– Alex Perez, Givex Canada Corp. (Vacancy filled: Bilingual Client Services Representative)
“I have been working with Julie for 12 years now. She is passionate about her business and it shows. There is no other employment agency that I have ever worked with for that length of time. Julie understands our business and the talent we are looking for. She would rather tell me that she is struggling to find good candidates than send me candidates she knows would not fit into our organization, which I greatly appreciate! We work together well and have a very open and honest way of communicating with each other, which I really enjoy. I would highly recommend Julie Labrie and BlueSky Personnel!”
– Kelly McDavid, Miele Limited (Vacancy filled: Customer Services Representative)
“Julie and her team understand our needs very well and always provide outstanding candidates. Julie is our go to agency and I’m so confident in her skills – we only use them.”
– Sara Cromwell, Abell Pest Control Inc. (Vacancy filled: AR Admin)
“Julie is an exceptional business woman who has created a strong brand due to her consistent professionalism in recruiting. I have charged Julie with very tough requirements for many different recruitments and she is able to surface quality candidates in a short period of time. I would highly recommend Julie whether it be junior to senior level positions.”
– Judith Puttock, World Vision Canada (Vacancy filled: Administrative Assistant)
“I have been working with Julie for about 5 years now. We have used her services to fill 4 positions in that period of time. Julie truly made an effort to get to know our company culture and find candidates that not only had all of the qualities that we were looking for but also one that would fit well within our organization. She is extremely prompt in her replies, very thorough, and will always follow up to see how the candidates are working out. She is a pleasure to work with.”
– Daniela Saccon, Pregel Canada (Vacancy filled: multiple positions – Accountant, Office Administrator, Customer Service Representative, etc.)
“Recruiting bilingual candidates in GTA is a challenge in itself, and Julie always found candidates for us. Extremely helpful in many aspects. Always providing timely responses. I have also used Julie’s expertise for recruitment in the Montreal area, great results here as well. Julie is a very talented recruiter and I do recommend her.”
– Manager of customer service, logistics and IT at a medical laboratories & life science research company (Vacancy filled: Bilingual Customer Service Representative)
