Helping individuals find their dream roles and companies locate that perfect match for their job openings

Want to find your dream job? Locate that elusive candidate? I can help! 

All applicants want to ace their job hunt, so their focus is on preparing for the interview process. The question they should be asking themselves is “Will I get to the next level if my resume doesn’t hook the attention of the Recruiter?”


Meanwhile, many company owners hire employees who work efficiently, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the candidates are a good fit with the company’s culture and environment.

At Umbrella Career Services in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I provide resume writing services and recruitment assistance to help both job hunters and company owners. With more than 16 years of experience, I bring a unique understanding of the entire recruitment lifecycle which is the first step to success for both job seekers and hiring managers.

About Me

Jennifer Vincent, Owner

More than 16 years ago, I started working in the staffing and recruitment industry and fell in love with the prospect of finding that match between the job seeker and prospective employer.


 I have been involved in the entire recruitment lifecycle from straight recruitment to proposal writing to the review / updating of resumes and the provision of career counseling services.


My work has provided exposure to a variety of industries including:

        • IT
        • Customer Service
        • Administration
      • Military to Civilian Transition
      • Engineering
      • Legal

  • Accounting
  • Education
  • Employment Barriers

Many of my previous projects (Recruitment and Resume Writing) have included clients transitioning out of the military into civilian life, as well as MBA students looking to highlight their transferable skills from previous careers. Additionally, I have developed resumes, cover letters, and educational philosophies for academic professionals.


On the Resume Writing side, my average turnaround time is 4 – 5 days.


On the Recruitment side, timelines depend on the role and available candidates.

My Mission

  • To provide professional and efficient recruitment solutions for small to medium-sized businesses that need to spend time growing their own companies, not searching for candidates.
  • Act as a bridge for individuals seeking their next challenge, whether that be their first role in the workforce or a mid-career transition, providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to achieve their career goals.

As both a Recruiter and Resume Writer, I work with a high level of integrity in everything I do. My extensive background has enabled me to understand each client’s objectives and needs, allowing me to deliver customized solutions that meet each’s requirements.

Vision Statement

To provide full-value, high-quality recruitment and resume writing services to both job seekers and companies within Nova Scotia.
