I have been involved with JFS for over 5 years now and have been extremely impressed with the programs they have for displaced employees in their career search. The programs are detailed and well thought out, and the instructors are all compassionate and knowledgeable. I recommend candidates to JFS on a regular basis.

I have donated my time to conduct several seminars for Jewish Family Services over the years ... and it is always a pleasure. JFS takes an active role in trying to teach managers and supervisors how they can build better workplace relationships with their employees and helping businesses succeed. JFS has also strived to assist those people who are looking for work in these tough economic times by provding them with trainnig on how to search for jobs, interview, draft resumes and so on. Jewish Family Services takes an extremely active role in helping the people and the businesses of central Ohio be more successful. JFS is a great asset to our community and I am proud to conduct training sessions for them whenever they want.

JFS is a great non-profit. I came to them because I know many who speak so positively about them. I have not been a client long, but the interviewing workshop I attended was tremendous. A huge help. I am also receiving loads of attention from my counselor,Tim McNish. He lets me know whenever something of interest comes up. I am looking forward to receiving more help from JFS.

I'm just getting started but the Ms. Nagin who runs the interviewing workshop is really good at helping us see and correct our interviewing flaws.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help even more people, offer training scholarships and other opportunities.

I was laid off from my job in February 2009 and contacted Jewish Family Services for help. I was immediately placed into a program with similarly displaced workers. We met weekly as a group, and there was always a speaker or workshop on a relevant topic. They also met with me privately to assess my skills, update and improve my resume, and help me with mock interviews. I am absolutely certain that I would not have found a new job nearly as quickly were it not for the help I received from JFS. My only criticism is that I was so impressed with their organization following my experience that I told them I'd like to get involved as a volunteer, and then I never heard from anyone.

Amazing! They didn't let me become paralyzed or give in to self-pity or procrastination...they were on top of me almost every day, pushing me and challenging me until we met our goals.

Jewish Family Services has been a wonderful community resource for us. We are able to post jobs with JFS, and in return receive resumes of qualified individuals, which has resulted in new hires for The CareWorks Family of Companies. In addition, JFS has hosted job fairs that are of great value to employers looking to hire quailty individuals. I love JFS and the work they do. Our community is a much better place because of the work they do in helping Ohioans get back into the workforce.

I refer many people to Jewish Family Services throughout the year for job placement, interviewing, and resume building assistance. They have a rigorous program that I think leads the pack in preparing people for employment opportunities. They have a friendly, professional staff of people who care deeply about those they serve. I think this organization is quite deserving of a Job Training and Placement award for their dedication and success in preparing people in their community for employment.

change the world! I have seen JFS do a lot with very little. They skillfully maximize staff and resources to deliver a huge product at low cost. I am amazed by all they do to serve the community, and they could do a lot more with more financial support.

I have been a participant in Jewish Family Services' SUCCESS program for two and a half weeks. In that short time, I have attended a workshop on resume writing, a workshop on cold calling/follow-up, an all-day Microsoft Access training seminar (at Eastland Career Center), a mock interview (with three career counselors), and three weekly meetings where there are always great networking opportunities and knowledgeable speakers. I also have had lots of one-on-one assistance with my counselor, including help revising my resume.

The Success program has been a great experience. I personally had my resume rewritten and became aware of the networking opportunities that are available. The workshops offered in resume writing, networking ,interview skills as well as training in programs such as Excel are a great help in my career search. The staff members are highly professional and available to clients. I highly recommend the SUCCESS program and its staff.
