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.

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

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.

I was introduced to the JFS SUCCESS program via another networking organization. As a displaced worker I found I qualified for the program to receive career counseling, networking support, and training to help develop my job search strategies. The career counselors at JFS are passionate individuals dedicated to helping their clients and colleagues achieve success in finding good jobs.

Jewish Family Services among other services has provided me with their S.U.C.C.E.S.S program service. This is an outstanding job search support program for professionals. I believe that it is the only one in the country with this federal contract. I receive as much one on one consultation as I need from, networking groups, a highly experienced personal career coach, as well as exceptionally excellent job search workshops on resume writing, interviewing, networking, etc.. These are the real deal, not just the basics, but the best information, with many many practical tools and take home materials. The entire staff makes themselves available for any need you may have with your job search at any time. This program is a gem!

Highly experienced as well as highly educated and degreed in this specific area. They were always available, worked as a team and were extremely knowledgeable. As good as you could find in a $1,000 a session wall street firm!

This is a wonderful organization that is highly involved in the community. They not only help people get back to work, but they also help other organizations in the community achieve their goals. For instance, I work for a local Universty that focuses on Adult degree programs. JFS provides information to their contacts, as well as their clients, about any available educational opportunities or events that we are holding. A relationship with JFS means a mutually beneficial, long-tern partnership.

It is a pleasure to work with JFS in Columbus, OH. They are recognized in the community as creators and organizers. They create avenues for their clients to explore for a variety of professional opportunities. They organize the community to support, attend and sponsor career fairs. I view JFS as a great networking resucre. They know everyone. Many professinoals in Columbus, OH couldn't have found their employment opportunity without the support, direction, contacts and drive of the team at JFS. They do it all; Resume preparation, interview training, suggest new skills to acquire, where to search for jobsedentials under my belt. JFS is made up of a highly professional staff who offer an affordable program for those who may have been downsized for a variety of reasons and just need a second chance. They provide hope for those who a push to believe in themselves again. I encourage everyone to support JFS.

The Great!

JFS is a Columbus, Ohio gem. They go the extra mile with each and every individual who walks though their door (or calls on the phone). Their set of services is comprehensive and job seekers not only get the training and placement assistance they most desperately need, they also receive family and individual counseling needed during a time of crisis.
