The outstanding programs at JMS have provided me with the skill sets and continuing motivation to maintain an effective career development program. Each week offers a choice of six concurrent workshops to develop skills in specific areas, an insightful devotional message and an energizing keynote speaker, as well as ample networking opportunities and referrals to outside/third party assistance or training. I highly recommend JMS to anyone initiating a job search and to those further along in career transition.

A good support system for those in between jobs in the Southwest Houston area. JMS provides encouragement, job search skills and a network of individuals to support each other. Unfortunately I have not attended very frequently because of the travel distance and the themes of the latest speakers, which have not interested me.

JMS has really given me some insight on my job search. I have only been too two sessions and I am very impressed. Professional, approachable and the time I am there, very informative. I wish I had found them sooner. I told a friend in Dallas she needs to find such a group. I tell everyone who is looking for a job or just needs some guidance and support about this program. Monique

JMS has been a blessing to me and a wonderful and convenient option to someone who lives in the southwest outskirts of Houston. The resources provided are valuable and up-to-date. For someone who hasn't had to look for job in "many moons", is a perfect was to transition to your jobsearch strategy for 2010. The spin-off "Greenlight Groups" are also an additional resource where you can meet with a smaller group of your peers to track, brainstorm and get feedback on your jobsearch.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A better résumé. Better networking skills. A confidence booster.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ramp up the staff/volunteers. Have a more structured accountability system.

More feedback...

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

The convenience. The comraderie. The lessons. Thank you!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Always welcoming and tireless.

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

Serve many more individuals = many more families; provide more resources and have on-site computer facilities.

Ways to make it better...

You get out what you put in, so it can only get better if I give more of myself.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finances?

One thing I'd also say is that...

I like the "soft sell" nature of the devotional time and how the Word of God can help us in our worksearch attitudes. Alot of people are uneasy with aggressive delivery of the gospel. I like the calmer and optimistic approach. (No doomsday scripture)

This is the second job search training group I have ever attended. The organization and technical operations of Job Ministry Southwest seminars have been above my wildest expectation. It has been a family of job seekers motivating and teaching each other of all the things we can do to enhance our job searches. A priceless service that is cost free to us job hunters.

I was given a destaff date in November 2009 and was concerned of being another person added to the unemployment list. A coworker of mine told me about Jobs Ministry Southwest amongst other outplacement groups as her husband was also umemployed and looking for work. My husband is also unemployed so we both attended one of the meetings. On a weekly basis, every Tuesday from 9am-Noon, Mr. Thorpe arranges for guest speakers who come in and speak to the group. This program gives you all the tools to help with your job search. Classes on resume writing, interviewing, networking and more are some of the tools provided free of cost. Mr. Thorpe, his wife and members of the group are very helpful and caring in providing help when needed.

I attended JMS meetings weekly and participated in the Green Light groups associated with JMS while seeking employment. I participated for approximately 2 months before "landing" a job. The resources made available to me through JMS were extremely helpful. JMS has Rick Gillis present one week and he presented his Accomplishment Sheet. I used this Accomplishment Sheet concept to land my job. Thank you JMS!
