My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for FourBlock Foundation Inc, New York, NY, USA
I joined FourBlock in Spring of 2017 and walked away with a wealth of knowledge. FourBlock's instructional design helps transitioning service members prepare for a post-military career in the civilian workforce. Their use of relevant subject matter experts, networking events, and curricula provides essential skill sets for service members.
During my tenure in the FourBlock training, I learned how to brand myself to organizations seeking highly qualified and technically competent team members. This is NOT a check the block organization. The ability for FourBlock to connect service members to hiring managers and recruiters is beyond reproach. They assist with in-depth review of resumes, LinkedIn Profiles and provide multiple mock interviews, best practices, and lessons learned. FourBlock reaches out to senior recruiters and hiring managers to provide a keen sense of what agencies are expecting from their candidates. They coordinate networking events with both public and private organizations as well as non-profit organizations for those looking to go into the non-profit route.
With FourBlocks help I was able to find the perfect position as a Learning & Development Administrator with an organization that mirrored my values and work ethic. I was so impressed by FourBlock's design and dedication to helping service members that I currently volunteer my time with FourBlock to assist other transitioning service members attain a second career that reinforces the values of our military.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase the locations of the organization to reach more service members.
