I have been very impressed with this organization. The job search environment has changed dramatically over the past few years. Searching the want ads in a local newspaper is no longer an acceptable method to find a job. Now social media is the best route, and BrokeButNotForLong provides excellent information through its website, blogs, and e-newspaper to help the unemployed traverse the new environment. Its website is loaded with information to help the unemployed maximize their career search, especially veterans and ex-offenders.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning about social media. BrokeButNotForLong has really helped me understand the new job search landscape. I have several friends who are re-entering the job market, and I have recommended BrokeButNotForLong to help them land their next job.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help them reach out to more people.

I fall into the category of a dislocated worker, someone who took a job in another country that did not work out and came home to the toughest- ever job market. Sandra Rogers, of Broke But Not For Long, has been with me through this tough time counseling me and providing chances for temporary employment and information about finding long-term options. Unfortunately, I am still struggling to locate satisfactory employment. I must say, though, it is not due Sandra's lack of effort. She cannot convince employers to hire, nor can she make the grueling process that employers require any shorter. What she can do and what she has done is point me in the direction of the best opportunities that she knows of. For that and her sympathetic ear, I am sincerely grateful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was granted an interview at the University of South Alabama after it was suggested by Sandra. I have also learned about some online options for teaching and getting certified in the state of Florida.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A cohesive list of opportunities on one website would be helpful, if logistically possible. It would also be great if this organization were backed by a grant and could afford a staff of headhunters/employment consultants.

Thanks for your positive feedback! Just to clarify, I didn't pull any strings at USA, you got that job interview based on your resume and job experience. I just pointed you in the right direction at the right time. Also, I'd like to suggest you look at www.job-hunt.org for a cohesive list of job resources on one website. Theirs is massive but can be overwhelming. That's why we stick to listing only the top 8-10 best job-related resources on our site.
