Jacob joined Optimum Talent in 2021 and is a member of our Career Transition + Outplacement services with a focus on the Thrive Career Wellness platform that offers organizations a more contemporary approach to upskilling and career transition.
He is a recent graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a Bachelor of Business Administration and a concentration on Digital Marketing. Originally determined to be an accountant, Jacob is very analytic by nature and has a keen focus on deciphering the best process for the task at hand. As an active extroverted communicator who lives for giving presentations (started competing in public speaking competitions at the age of 7), he enjoys connecting with clients to determine their organizational needs for career transition requirements.
Jacob is an enthusiastic member of helping individuals with disabilities through mentoring junior sledge hockey players and through his involvement with the KidsAbility Youth Council. Do not be fooled by his laid-back demeanor, as a former provincial and national level athlete, Jacob is fueled by a competitive spirit.
When not at work you will find Jacob enjoying time with friends and family, walking his dog, playing sledge hockey, ensuring he says in good physical shape, and cheering on the Calgary Flames (despite being born and raised in Toronto)!
