My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA
I received services from Jewish Family Services as part of their SUCCESS program. The SUCCESS program helps professionals who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. They assist with resumes, cover letters, networking and interviewing skills.
This is an extremely valuable service. If you are a blue collar worker, the state will bend over backwards to find you a job, but if you are a professional, you are on your own.
The weekly group meetings are invaluable. Unemployment can be a very isolated experience. The group lets you know you are not alone. JFS will do everything to give you the support you need to find employment.
My education really worked against me in this job search (overeducated), but with the help of JFS, I have landed my "dream job". I am with a very stable company making a great salary, great benefits and doing the work I want.
