JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES
November 16, 2013

If it wasn't for Jewish Family Services, I might still be unemployed. In spite of a great work history - or maybe because of it - my resume was stale and unfocused. My interviewing skills were nonexistent, and I had no idea how to find a job that suited my skills and preferences. Looking for work after 15 years with the same company was overwhelming. The wonderful workshops JFS staff offered cut the task into manageable slices, tackling first the focus, then the resume, then the interview. After these sessions, my resume started getting hits, my interviews went from none to several, and I landed a contract assignment within 3 months of working with them. Special kudos to my counselor, Tim McNish, who really earned a gold medal for putting up with an eclectic and slightly recalcitrant client.

My only regret about finding a job is that I no longer get to learn from this team - they are the best!
