Jackie can only be described with superlatives, because whatever is expected of her - she exceeds. She doesn’t just complete an assigned successfully and promptly; she finds ways to improve upon the assignment and to submit it ahead of schedule. She doesn’t just maintain a positive attitude; she radiates an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious to those around her. She doesn’t just excel in her areas of expertise; she takes on new skills and strives to make herself an expert. Jackie is an energetic, creative, self-starter who can be a positive to contributor to any endeavor she sets her sights on.

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Jackie Blum to any employer looking for a passionate and successful team member. I have had the pleasure to work with Jackie at three different jobs, Illuminations, American Eagle Outfitters, and Bath & Body Works. At each of these companies she demonstrated a number of skills, that as an employer I find valuable in any candidate. Through her work history with me, she has always exceeded my expectations, exhibited passion for her job, and helped advance her team without hesitation.
