i was introduced to pinncale since 2005 and uptil today my life would not be awesome without their advice, counsel and training which has helped on going. i got back intouch with pinnacle again last year due the job recession which affected me. In 2005 i was homeless with my 4 children then, and i got alot of training and help on resume writing, and applying for the right jobs and also personal computer training, which gave me confidence as a foreigner, and as a woman who at that time had low self esteem. if not for pinnacle free services there was noone i could reach out too, nor was there anyone ready to give me the time to help me then and today as a single mum. In a fast paced country most persons are busy they have no time for a homeless nor helpless unskilled person, but pinnacle did and continue to do so in my life. Especially today when jobs, training skills, and boost of confidence is lowered but new changes today in America. i need them.

I have a lot of skills but had a hard time marketing myself. Cindy Virtue helped me update my resume and encouraged me to identify the companies I wanted to target to have a more successful job search.

I attended the Women's Empowerment Conference last year. I was impressed with the motivation and energy that permeated the rooms. It was refreshing to be in the company of so many participants -- from those who contributed their professional knowledge/experience to those who gathered any and everything they decided would be personally beneficial. Overall, the conference was a day well spent. Just simply seeing so many positive-minded women in attendance was empowering in itself. BW
