Jacqueline Zagotsis, RPR

Jacqueline Zagotsis is the Branch Manager for AppleOne Employment Services (Oakville Division). Her team of staffing consultants drives toward success by meeting the unique challenges of each AppleOne client. While principally involved in new client development, Jacqueline has been successful in tailoring AppleOne’s programs to assist her clients with job descriptions, compensation structures, employment standards and training and development. Within the Oakville Division, Jacqueline is instrumental in the training and development of her six staff members.

Jacqueline Zagotsis
While Jacqueline has spent the last seven and half years of her career in Human Resources, specializing in the recruitment and placement of Administrative professionals, her passion for the employment industry stemmed from her post secondary education and work experience in Social Work. Having worked in the non-profit sector for over six years, she quickly identified her need and desire to work with people. Her position with AppleOne has afforded her the opportunity to find applicants the “career of a lifetime” and assist her clients in sourcing the candidates they just can’t find themselves. It has proven to be a very rewarding journey for Jacqueline.

In addition to her RPR training, Jacqueline is motivated to acquire her Certified Professional Manager Accreditation and her Registered Assessment Specialist Accreditation. Jacqueline also anticipates writing her CHRP provincial exam in September, 2005.

In her personal time, Jacqueline enjoys the ultimate career, “Mommy-hood”. Free time with her two sons, Nicholas and Chris, is spent at the Karate Studio, Swimming pool and Hockey rink. In addition to her full-time duties as a “Mom” Jacqueline still finds time to support and foster her husband, Chris’ professional career which encompasses regular global travels. When feasible, Jacqueline considers herself a “gym” junkie, often arriving at the gym as late as 10pm for a one hour workout or “mental retreat” as she often refers to it.
