A Day in the Life of Jorge Guevara: Finding the Beauty in Life, One Steel-Toe Shoe at a Time
Meet Jorge Guevara, On-Site Manager at Accurate Personnel - Chicago, and the company-wide point of contact if you are in need of positivity. As he steps into the office each morning, Jorge begins his day with an energetic blend of tea and an enthusiastic dive into his inbox, armed with the determination to organize his day for success.
If you had to sum up Jorge in one story, it would have to involve what he considers to be his favorite memory of working with Accurate: a random encounter that turned into a life-changing experience almost two years ago when a stranger approached him asking for money.
True to his nature, looking to help others, Jorge asked the stranger what he needed the money for. The gentleman explained that he was new to the city, did not have cash, and needed a helping hand. Faced with a decision, Jorge didn't just offer a handout – he offered a job.
This particular job required steel-toe protection, so Jorge gave the man $45 for shoes and told him to meet at the office the next day to complete an application.
Shoes secured, Jorge helped the man through his application, and our new associate reported to work later that week, boots on and eager to get started. Upon receiving their first paycheck, the associate was sure to pay Jorge back for the shoes and give thanks for the opportunity.
Given the chance to make a difference, Jorge offered the gentleman an opportunity to join the Accurate family. Today, not only is that person still an associate with Accurate, but they are a provider for their own family, thanks to Jorge's compassion and belief.
Jorge's organizational prowess is no secret. Armed with his trusty orange notebook, he meticulously plans his day, ensuring no task slips through the cracks.
When faced with tough challenges, Jorge's strategy is simple yet effective – prioritize and conquer. Armed with a can-do attitude, he tackles obstacles head-on, seeking support when needed. This winning mindset has not only helped him overcome hurdles but has also inspired those around him.
Amidst the paperwork and tasks, Jorge's desk tells its own story. Pinned between family photos, you'll find a collection of stickers, each proclaiming a simple yet powerful message: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Jorge's secret to staying energized during a bustling day? Good food! A firm believer in the connection between a full stomach and a productive day, he takes time to recharge by enjoying his favorite cuisines, Mexican and Thai, ensuring he's ready to tackle anything that comes his way.
But Jorge is not all business; he is also a man of many talents. When Jorge is not behind his desk, you'll find he is a skilled server/bartender and a dancing dynamo. He can make the drinks and cut a rug with the best of them, whether the day calls for Salsa, Cumbia, Nortena, or Rock.
As he reflects on his journey with Accurate, Jorge acknowledges the support he received from fellow team members as he was just starting out. Cindy Lopez, Raquel Acevedo, and the late Juan Mackan were instrumental in helping him navigate the staffing industry. Their encouragement taught him the importance of pushing oneself and persevering through challenges – a lesson he carries with him each day.
In the hustle and bustle of the staffing industry, Jorge Guevara stands out as a beacon of compassion, resilience, and positive energy. His journey is not just a testament to personal growth but a reminder that in the workplace, kindness and support can truly change lives.
