ABOUT THE FOUNDER & CEO: JESSICA BIERMAN
Founder and CEO of JBIER Inc., e-commerce business owner, and Career Management Advisor, Jessica Bierman continues to pursue entrepreneurial ventures, which have kept her in the industries of fashion, beauty, and retail for over ten years. Bierman graduated in 2014 from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing. She has a robust global network while working alongside esteemed companies, such as The Esteé Lauder Companies, Macy’s Inc., Rodan + Fields Skincare, and Adrienne Landau.
In March 2015, Bierman’s passion and appreciation for e-commerce, resale, and sustainability, inspired her to begin her journey as a small business owner of JBIER on Poshmark, a leading e-commerce marketplace for new and secondhand merchandise. Through the growth of her resale business, Bierman gained valuable experience, both hands-on and virtually, with sales, business management, customer service, merchandising, photography, packaging, events, marketing, and social media. Following the significant shift in shopping behavior due to the COVID-19 lockdown, Bierman saw this as the perfect opportunity to take her online small business to the next level. That said, Bierman founded her fashion, beauty, and lifestyle startup, JBIER Boutique, in May 2020, officially launched the e-commerce platform JBIER Boutique, jbierboutique.com, in January 2021, and incorporated the business, JBIER Inc., in April 2021.
As Founder and CEO of JBIER Inc., JBIER Boutique, and the JBIER Fashion Internship Program, Bierman’s vision and mission is to bridge the gap between fashion, e-commerce, and career development by providing accelerated expertise and resources essential for young entrepreneurs to ignite their careers in fashion. Bierman established the JBIER Fashion Internship Program as an immersive learning experience to support the personal, professional, and educational growth of college students in a virtual setting. Through the continued success of the program over the past three years, 90% of graduates secured full-time positions with renowned companies, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, LoveShackFancy, and the TJX Companies Inc. Merchandising Program.
Alongside her e-commerce business ownership, Bierman serves as a Career Management Advisor, specializing in resume building, interviewing, self-branding, LinkedIn optimization, and networking for business. Expanding her offerings, Bierman is now introducing Career Acceleration Program (CAP) Workshops, beginning with our flagship Interview 101 module, offering mock interviews with tailored coaching sessions focused on professional presentation and etiquette, role-specific questions, as well as interview do's and don'ts.
As the company, boutique, and program continue to rapidly grow with exciting new ventures, Bierman and the JBIER team are excited to see what the future holds!
"What I enjoy most about JBIER is that I can foster the development of my intern’s professional careers. Through hands-on leadership and collaborative efforts, JBIER has seen an immense amount of growth. I am excited to see what the near future holds for JBIER and those who contributed to our success."

"Jess was a true inspiration to me. Every day, no matter what was happening an hour ago, the day before, or in her personal life, she came onto Zoom with a smile and the most positive mood. She inspires me to keep going after my dreams, to not let anyone tell me no, and to stay true to who I am. I'm forever grateful that my path crossed with hers. I don't know where I would be without her."
