May Your Career Be Jubilant

Jubilant Careers, John J. Cesare

Title / Role: Co-Founder, CEO
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
What do you do?

Our platform creates a community where employers, candidates, and field-experienced educators interact with each other to better enhance their careers.  We are a very powerful tool for any human resources department, staffing agency, general recruiting services, or any small business by allowing the hiring manager to upload all onboarding materials and documents and track the candidates throughout the process. 

What inspired you to start your business?

With this oversaturated market of potential employees & organizations focusing on bringing in skilled talent eager to get back to work and fulfill available positions, Jubilant Careers was created to bridge the gap and bring a more consultative approach to each potential Employer/Employee interaction. Jubilant Careers was founded with the sole purpose of helping guide all people to their ideal careers and providing as many tools as necessary to achieve those career goals.

What's special about your business?

Jubilant Careers uses proprietary software that provides equal opportunity. The robust platform encompasses a variety of features that allow the employer & candidate to understand each other on a far more personal level than the standard “run of the mill” employment agency that is strictly looking to make money by placing individuals into roles within a given organization as quickly as possible without honing in on the importance of personability within the hiring process. For the employer, our platform allows each candidate to create a personalized profile that not only encompasses the standard procedural documents but can also accompany their profile with a Video Biography, showcasing the prospective client on a far more personal level. The Potential candidate can also create a personal video specifically for a prospective employer. It is a common belief at Jubilant that a more personable approach is key to finding the correct individuals to fulfill a vacancy for a given organization. 

What is your relationship with SCORE? SCORE client What influenced you to seek help from SCORE?

My prior experience with my mentor.

How SCORE helped.

Both the in-depth knowledge of my mentor along the vast network of resources accessible through SCORE have been such a great help.

What's great about my mentor?

It was easy for me to introduce another idea when working with my mentor as I previously worked with Dave on another successful business start-up. When I raised my idea about Jubilant Careers, he got very excited about the potential to be able to help many people. He immediately put me in contact with several businesses that may benefit greatly from our services.  Dave also is putting me in contact with a member from SHRM and other nonprofits where our services can help impact many people.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of starting a small business?

The vast network and in-depth knowledge accessible through SCORE have been such a great help.  I admire the passion SCORE has and they genuinely care about you, your business, and your ability to leave a positive impact on the community you serve.
