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.
