Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What an AMAZING experience!! The people, the services, the willingness to help – I have never experienced anything that even resembled such a service!

My husband and I came to Columbus OH, from a foreign country a month ago, without a job, and without knowing anyone. We were overwhelmed by the amount of information we were lacking.

We got in touch with the JFS and from that moment on we were no longer alone. The JFS helped us settle in, helped us get furniture into our then empty apartment, called us in for consultations and gave us important advice on where and how to get around Columbus. For this I must thank Danielle Rubin for her amazing work and effort!

It did not end there… To help me find a job (I was an out of work attorney) I initially met with Sheila Camden from the career center of the JFS. Sheila – an incredibly nice person, that always greeted me with a sincere smile, referred me to Mindy Agin, a career strategist from the JFS. Mindy, together with Lynn Aspey worked with me on finding me a job to my satisfaction. Mindy met with me several times, revised my resume according to the job description and sent me job applications she thought suitable. Lynn worked hard in the background, finding me the right position, contacting potential future employers, recommending me and stating in touch. All their hard work resulted in me getting the job of my dreams!

I want to take this opportunity to thank them all at the JFS for just being who they are – wonderful people with a true mission and intention to help!!

Thank You! When I will have the opportunity I will definitely try and pay in forward.
