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

My job search potentials, which I never considered.

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

I am being taught the A-Z of job search and acquisitions. Networking, resume creation, interviewing, self motivation etc.

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

The whole group of attendies were genuine, helpfull, patient, infact we are like a family

JMS has been a Godsend for me. After transplanting myself across the continent three times in the last three years, it is nice to have a home. Unemployment is typically seen as a time of despair; however, I have been given hope attending JMS. Doug directed me to a counselor to assist with my depression (no more anti-depressants for me) then he led me to create a poster of my ideal job. I see that poster everyday hanging in my room giving me focus as to what I am looking for in a job. The networking groups force me to speak up and get out of my comfort zone. The input I get from others helps me to get out of my head and realize I am not the only unemployed person or for that matter a highly qualified one. If you are looking for a job, I stongly recommend that you attend JMS. Learning to write well constructed resume will make it worth your time if nothing else. Hope to see you there. Bobbi Hodge

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

helpful and supportive.

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

reach out to more people around the nation.

God directs us if we allow, first you have to have the spiritual means to confirm your personal strengths have value. Then you just have to have the power to release the "Faith" into God's hands, which is what I did by allowing JMS to openly guide me.. JMS is by far the most extraordinary gift to those who attend. Having been laid off you tend to reachout but without real direction. JMS has helped me structure my direction and where to best focus my energies: Effctive resume writing, Networking power tools, and overall the consistent "positive" attitiude that the memebers portray each week. The consistent basis of communicaiton and job search links and job opportunites passed are phenominal--constant feed back daily. It has helped me feel comfortable in my job search and know that I am capable of doing anything, and most importantly that change is enevitable but with change comes great oportunities for us all-you have to be confident and not give up. Get up everyday and begin with the Go Getter attitude. My weekly attendance reaffirms that there are many so many opportunies with in our networking group it's real people going through the same challenges. Overall the most important aspect is it has helped me really outline my accomplishments, which to so vital to who I really am and what I really have to offer the business world. It also reminds me that these tools are things I must continue to monitor even after I am employed to maintain my credentails. I highly recommened attending JMS to all my friends--absolutely a "Power" Booster we need!

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

Noting my accomplishments, defining really what I have done in my career. We tend to discount ourselves at times and take our benefits for granted. WOW, it's amazing to know who I am and rediscover the raod I have traveled...

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

The people and dynamics of their outlook. Not one person comes across as the "poor me" mindset. It's true synergy filtering into this group. We enteract and talk, no fear to openly shake someones hand and speak out. Also the resources they feed-WOW!

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

All ready to help and reach out with anything they can to help...lots of email communication.

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

Branch out so much farther to my unemployed friends in other states--they need resources for the on-hand networking we have here--they would really benefit. We all hve to have a reason to get up and meet and greet...this is it!

Several key points included a very positive atmosphere, relevant and updated information, and most important, personnal attention. At JMS, you are not just a face in the crowd.

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

their ability to assist in a career search in such a way that each individual is encouraged to participate and maintain a positive attitude.
