In 2009, I was laid-off from my job – not knowing what to do, my mother suggested that I look into taking a class at JobTrain. In Fall of 2009, I graduated from the Medical Office Assistant program. In Spring of 2010 I began a new job and have been working for the same company for over four years. JobTrain provided me with the means to get back on my feet.

I'm currently not working but, I signed up with JobTrain for training so that I can get experience on Medical Assistant to receive the skills needed to get me a job. I got referred from PeninsulaWorks in Menlo Park located at JobTrain. The employees in PeninsulaWorks/JobTrain were WONDERFUL, PROFESSIONAL, AND, HELPFUL. I am now waiting to attend JobTrains Medical Assistant program at JobTrain. I'm extremely excited for my new journey as becoming a Medical Assistant.

Adam Weiner is possibly the best teacher I've ever had and Jobtrain is an amazing program. I've never been a part of anything like Jobtrain and I am so grateful to have had such a unique experience. I've learned skills and tricks that no one except someone like Adam could teach. I'm sorry to see Mime's close b/c I wish more young people could have the amazing experience that I've had.

This is definitely a 5star organization. They rolled out the red carpet in every aspect of our training and welfare. I'm very proud to have had the priviledge of being in such good company. I found Chef Adams and JobTrain to be top shelf people that take pride in their work. [This review was transcribed by a GreatNonprofits staff member.]
