Review for JobTrain, Inc., Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was dislocated from my job in March, 2008 and was in the real estate/mortgage lending industry. I have had a very hard time trying to transition into a new career. JobTrains has helped gain some much needed skills in order for me to hopefully obtain that. I am in the office skills class and learning how to use Microsoft applications. Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook. I am very pleased with the fact that I also didn't have to pay for these classes out of my own pocket. Being a single mother and out of work, it sometimes can be very difficult to make ends meet but JobTrains has definitely given me the advantage that I need in order to be successful in my career and not have to worry about the financial part. I have recommended JobTrains to two of my former coworkers and my daughter. They have all started going to classes here as well. JOBTRAINS IS WONDERFUL AND A GODSEND!!!!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

some of the people that have graduated from here and got jobs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more classes in the evening.

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

the class that I am taking is helping me learn skills that I would normally have to pay for at any college. It gives me the opportunity to learn new skills to better myself and market myself that is more appealing to the job market.

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

Always helpful and friendly.

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

move into a better building that is bigger

Ways to make it better...

so far everything is good. I can't complain.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding resources to keep the facility going.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I like the idea that women with young children can receive daycare here while learning a new trade.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
