Haute Couture Moms at the 2014 Golden Globes


Posted on January 13, 2014 by

The real babes of the 2014 Golden Globes were safely and glamorously tucked away by their A-list mommies. Olivia Wilde shimmered from head-to-toe in a long-sleeved Gucci gown of green sequins. Kerry Washington chose a polished look from Balenciaga with a sweet overlay to perfectly accessorize her baby bump. Drew Barrymore was ever the flower child in a floral Monique Lhuillier that couldn’t have worked on anyone else. Well done, ladies.

Top 10 Wardrobe Must Haves – The Investments


Posted on January 10, 2014 by

Every woman needs a killer wardrobe. Racking up hangers full of trendy pieces may satisfy short-term needs, but it’s the timeless wardrobe additions that make for worthy investments. These closet staples should be of high quality fabric and construction; however, that doesn’t necessarily mean they need to be from a designer or well-known label.

As far as trends, variety is important as the colorful or patterned pieces can be filtered in each season to update your wardrobe essentials. This year, Radiant Orchid is in the spotlight, but do refrain from purchasing 50 shades of purple and narrow it down to only a few pieces in your favorite fit or style.

The challenge is to find the balance between trendy and timeless as you collect these must-have items that will become the foundation of your wardrobe. Oh, and don’t be alarmed, where just one bag won’t do or when just one pair of shoes isn’t enough, collecting a few options is perfectly fine. Let the wardrobe building begin!

Conquer 2014 in 14 Steps


Posted on December 16, 2013 by


by Bryan Zaslow

Success isn’t difficult to achieve if you have reasonable expectations and you’re determined and motivated, but it can be difficult to sustain. Failure to plan for the future while balancing your plans for today leaves you susceptible to a false feeling of over-confidence and at risk of becoming obsolete. Image

As 2014 inches closer, it’s hard to believe that another year is passing by. But don’t dwell on missteps, they are inevitable – instead, consider them learning experiences. Abraham Lincoln said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” We should endeavor to devise our plans well in advance, find constant comfort in adapting those plans based on current experiences, and continue to look towards the future as we exist in the present. Charting a strategic path is essential to longevity in any industry. Here’s how to do it: (more…)

JBCSpotlight: Meet Kalyn


Posted on December 16, 2013 by


Title: Talent Acquisition Executive

Location: Los Angeles

Recruiting specialty: Retail

I became a recruiter because… Fashion recruiting is the culmination of my industry knowledge, my people skills and my desire to succeed!

Favorite designer/artist: In terms of artists, I’m a huge fan of old school fashion photographer Richard Avedon. In terms of designers, I love me some YSL. But really, who doesn’t?

Celebrity crush: Javier Bardem

Favorite place in {LOS ANGELES}: The Bungalow. Yes, it’s a bar and yes, it’s fabulous.

Interview horror story: I think I’ll share a screening horror story just because I have so many. I called my candidate via Skype and guess who answered? Her shirtless husband. I was terrified. She popped out from behind him three seconds later but needless to say, the call was off to an awkward start. (more…)

JBC Employees of the Month

Employees of the Month – November


Congratulations, JBCPlatform!

The JBCPlatform team (left to right: Allen, Lissette, Mike, Jessica and Ray) stood out as Employees of the month for November – and what a month it was! Their greatest accomplishment was achieved when they successfully filled 1,200 roles for a major apparel retailer in a matter of three weeks when they were only a team of four (Lissette joined later) – all the while maintaining relationships and filling positions with existing clients.

The seven-day work weeks during that time period consisted of 12-hour shifts that can only be possible (and endurable) with the right people by your side. As stated by Ray:

“What makes this team amazing is how we click and back each other up on everything. We’re an all-in type of team. All of us made different sacrifices to make this happen!”

Get to know JBCPlatform:

Favorite Quotes

Mike: “POW!”

Allen: “…yeah, yeah…”

Jessica: “Why didn’t you go to work?”

Lissette: “I have a question…”

Ray: “Mint!” and “Big things!”

Team wise: “If you’re not first, you’re last.” and “Do or do not….there is no try!”

Fun Facts

Allen is secretly a dancer and puts hot sauce on EVERYTHING!!!!

Mike is secretly Santa Claus.

Jessica once dressed up as an Easter bunny to cover a temp who didn’t show up to work.

Ray disguised himself to work as an overnight picker at a client in order to save the client. It worked.

Lissette works full time at Best Buy.

All of Platform loves Chipotle!

All are big fans of the NFL. Mike and Allen are Giants fans. Ray and Jessica are Patriots fans (Ray also likes the Bills). Lissette is confused about football and thinks the Jaguars are the team to beat.
