Doug and Susan Thorpe both have done a fabulous job with JMS. They’re not only bringing different guest speakers to the main meeting but also organizing work shops such as resume writing, marketing planning, and interviewing techniques. In addition, Doug also teaches the benefits of social media such as Linkedin.

I spent about 4 months contributing to and learning from the folks at JMS. JMS offers practical help to the job search process. They provided a forum to learn about myself - both strengths and areas of growth. Opportunities to assist and contribute to the job search of others. The leadership provided inspiration to follow Gods direction for my life.

I was given a destaff date in November 2009 and was concerned of being another person added to the unemployment list. A coworker of mine told me about Jobs Ministry Southwest amongst other outplacement groups as her husband was also umemployed and looking for work. My husband is also unemployed so we both attended one of the meetings. On a weekly basis, every Tuesday from 9am-Noon, Mr. Thorpe arranges for guest speakers who come in and speak to the group. This program gives you all the tools to help with your job search. Classes on resume writing, interviewing, networking and more are some of the tools provided free of cost. Mr. Thorpe, his wife and members of the group are very helpful and caring in providing help when needed.
