After having lost 2 jobs in a row due to business closures, I found myself having difficulty finding anything that seemed to fit. I had been working for years in the building industry as a ceramic/stone tile design specialist, utilizing tile in kitchens, baths, pools, patios, etc. The market for that kind of expertise in Columbus was pretty much limited to tile sales at the time. Few builders would hire someone whose specialty was so limited. I was discouraged, to say the least. When I joined the Jewish Family Services SUCCESS program, I didn't really expect much. I had already tried a number of other programs without much success. I learned real quickly that this program far surpassed the others. The staff immediately helped me recognize how my skill sets could be applied to other industries. I learned from Karen how to write a winning resume, from Mindy the best interview techniques, and from the classes how to organize my job search and network. As a result, I got the job of my dreams! But the very best part of the whole experience was the positive, supportive, and caring attitudes of the staff. I am very grateful for the resources at Jewish Family Services. I highly recommend this agency - JFS rocks!
