My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Jobs Ministry Southwest, Inc., Richmond, TX, USA
I was laid off here in Houston due to the economic downturn in February 2009, so I have been looking for a job for almost a year now. I have worked in the information technology industry in Houston for 30 years and I am 52 years old. At times I have been very discouraged because I would get interviews but never an offer. JMS has been a huge encouragement to me!!! The speakers are great and the other job seekers have been a real support. I am not alone!!!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The upbeat speakers that have been at each weekly meeting. The excellent advice on current and most effective job search techniques versus the old ways to search. Small group meetings sponsored during the week where we can talk and get more help.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Doug Thorpe has a very difficult job and is doing a great job. He has over 200 people attending weekly joint meetings and about 10 small group meetings during the week. People feel free to volunteer under his leadership.
