Special thanks to the Jewish Family Services (JFS) I truly appreciated all the support, endorsements, and the networking contacts that I was provided during my time of unemployment. I believe that due to the JFS assistance I am better prepared to start my next professional role. I found the entire staff to be very caring, and professional. One of the trainings that I attended was the Mock Interview which provided me insight on being prepared for the next interview. Special recognition to my career advisor who worked diligently in helping me with my resume and continuous meetings to ask professional questions. I give JFS an “A” rating.

Thanks!
DB

I have worked for JFS for the past 5 years - it has become my second family. I enjoy my job day in and day - the satisfaction that I get from working at JFS cannot be put into words. I know that by working at JFS I have helped my community. And that is why I love working at JFS.

Jewish Family Service certainly has a rich history of changing lives. They put the client first and wrap them around with different programs to help each and every individual meet their full potential. Working with the New Country New Jobs deparment, which helps place refugees, I have seen each staff member go above and beyond. I've seen barriers removed not only when it comes to employment but all the other factors that make life comfortable. Working with a diverse population from Somali, Bhutan, Iraq, Eritrea and Ethiopia, Jewish Family Serices embodies the great scholar Hilel's, “If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?”

As a professional in the field, living out of town, when my family in Columbus was in need we turned to Jewish Family Services. When a family member's life was falling apart mentally, physically, emotionally, and financially, we were desperate for answers and services. The need for support and services was clearly one of life and death. This case was extremly complex - especially because the person in need was not fully aware of how dire their situation was. JFS was there with us every step of the way. Living out of town, it was hard to be involved at a level that was needed. JFS was available and accessible every step of the way. They helped us identify and access approriate services within JFS and the State system, providced support for an intervention, provided support to family members, and provided excellent follow-up. JFS was a partner and stayed with us as we navigated a very unusual and difficult situation. Today, after a near death experience, my family member is healthy, happy, and building her life. Thank you JFS for your remarkable support!!

The SUCCESS Program was like a life-line; Jim Hatch was an excellent mentor; and, along with the entire Jewish Family Services' staff, gave me encouragement and direction in my search for employment. I will always be grateful for their professionalism and attention to me as an indvidual. I am currently employed and know that without JFS, chances are I would not be. Thank you all!!!

Lynn Aspey at JFS is one of my most favorite people on the planet. Her energy is contagious. When the Scioto Ridge Job Networking Group was looking to conduct it's first career fair, Lynn was the first person we called. Through her experience in promoting career fairs, Lynn was instrumental in guiding through the process. The career fair was a great success. Thanks much, Lynn!

The Verizon Wireless Human Resources Team has partnered with Lynn Aspey and her team for years providing resume / interviewing tips to help displaced workers get back to work. It has been a pleasure to work with the JFS team.

We have attended the annual Easton Job Fair which is organized by Lynn and her team and we have been able to brand our company and provide information on all the opportunities Verizon Wireless has to offer. Our goal is to give back to the community and help Ohioians get back to work.

I have presented 3 times at JFS to present to their job seekers in their S.U.C.C.E.S.S. program. I am a HR Consultant for small to mid-sized organizations and my discussion was to help job seekers target and understand interviewing with those types of organizations better. JFS was extremely professional in on-boarding me, welcoming and introducing me and allowing time for Q&A's. They are very client-oriented and involve their community to help their clients in every way, shape and form. I love being associated with them. They are an example of how a community organization should work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their desire to help their clients succeed. I also am a career coach and we do not view each other as competition, but an alignment for helping people. We refer each other as appropriate and help pass vital information out to the community.

My experience with Jewish Family Services has been excellent. I have used their career placement service for about 4 years. I send them all of my job postings and they provide me candidates that might be a good match. But they don't just send me resumes, they call and ask any questions they might have about my posting. And when they have a candidate for me, the counselor working with that candidate calls me to provide a detailed background and salary range if applicable, so I have a good amount of information on each candidate. Their service is always extremely professional, upbeat, and they really care about helping their candidates find the right job, not just any job. I would highly recommend working with Jewish Family Services to anyone in the HR field!
