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

Rating: 5 stars  

This opportunity came to me when I needed it the most. I had worked for 18 years in corporate with nothing to show for it, I was struggling & couldn't provide for my two children as a single mother. I lost our home and had to move around with friends and family. During a housing meeting my counselor mentioned Jobtrain and handed me the flyer. The first class that popped out to me was Project Build - Carpentry class and I called the next day to sign up. I've always enjoyed working with my hands and had no intentions of going back to the office life as I needed a solid career with no limits/there is always room to grow in the trades industry! After 17 weeks we received 6 certifications that will take us farther in our career, we've earned a new valuable skillset, we've built lifelong friendships and have the opportunity that we didn't have a few months ago. I will forever be grateful for Jobtrain and for providing the support I needed to get on a better life path. This is a great organization and I hope to see it going strong in another 50 years!
