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.

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.

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.
