About Jacquelyn Brookins
Jacquelyn Brookins is the Human Resources and Recruiting Manager for RPI Group, Inc, a government contractor with an expertise in systems engineering and cybersecurity support. Jacquelyn joined RPI in February 2016 to return to her passion of finding the best possible folks to represent her organization and take care of the current employees. Her first taste of HR was through summer internships during high school working in the Human Resources department for one of the largest unions. Even through college while waiting tables, Jacquelyn facilitated new employee orientations and corporate trainings for local and regional staff. Halfway through college Jacquelyn selected Integrative Studies with a Concentration in Elementary Education as her major and graduated in 2009 with her Bachelor’s degree. While she had her sights set on being a teacher, she entertained an offer for an HR Intern position with a defense contractor, and instantly fell in love with the fast-paced environment. That internship quickly turned into a full time Recruiting Coordinator position where she was able to learn the ropes of recruiting and human resources and enhance the recruiting program for years to come. Jacquelyn also spent four years working for an online university, with a job emphasis of connecting student veterans to viable career opportunities with defense contractors and government agencies. Jacquelyn’s steadfast commitment to her mission at the university opened new doors for their veteran population through unique partnerships with government agencies. Jacquelyn has a passion for helping people and nothing makes her happier than seeing good people land jobs they are truly excited about, especially when she is the one hiring them!
