Review for Jacobs Ladder Job Center, Inc., Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the pleasure of being a client and now being a full-time employee of Jacob's Ladder as the Technology Instructor. Upon first arriving at Jacob's Ladder as a client, I was very impressed with the willingness of staff to help me in my job search. I began to network with volunteers who even forwarded my resume to their friends, churches, and employers. Soon after, I began volunteering at Jacob's Ladder as a speaker and it was fun to tell my story. Several months later,an opportunity opened up for a part-time position as Technology Instructor for Jacob's Ladder clients. I jumped at the opportunity to work for the program where I could offer encouragement and expertise in the area of Technology. I am now a proud full-time employee of Jacob's Ladder and I am excited about where we are going as a non-profit. Go Inspired Team!

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

the knowledge of staff members in the area of job readiness training and the assistance of volunteers with mock interviews.

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

people of integrity, passion, and a willingness to hold the clients accountable.

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

hire more staff members to assist clients and start several social enterprise ventures that would hire its clients and provide them a source of income and an opportunity to get hands on job experience.
