Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was laid off by my employer, I joined the SUCCESS program at JFS to get assistance in finding a new career path. I worked mostly with Mindy Agin, but also some with the other SUCCESS counselors, as they provided me with excellent guidance. Specific things that were extraordinarily helpful to me were (1) coaching on interview skills including performing mock interviews sessions, (2) preparation of a professional and powerful resume, (3) weekly seminars and discussion groups with other SUCCESS participants, and (4) loads of advice on how to pursue employers and jobs of interest. I have recommended many friends and former colleagues to take advantage of their great services. I feel absolutely confident that the fact that I was able to get a new job in a down economy had a lot to do with the help that I got from the JFS team - their advice helped me stand out from the pack and win the job offer!

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

very caring and highly professional!
