Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

JFS helped me more than I can say during my time of unemployment. They gave me confidence, interviewing skills, resume writing skills, and the support of a group of wonderful people. Their support helped me go out and nail my job interview and get the job I wanted.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping me with job application, interviewing, and confidence building. They kept me going when I was jobless and my confidence was low. I would not be where I am now without the help and support of JFS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it so more people could benefit from their services.

Role:  Client Served & I received career counseling, resume writing help, interviewing skills, and confidence!.
 

Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The staff at Jewish Family Services helped me immeasurably. They are professional, compassionate, and really kept me on track during my employment search. The support of the staff, and camaraderie of the group of SUCCESS participants, gave me the encouragement and confidence I needed to keep me moving forward and land my new job. I highly recommend the organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

honing my resume and interviewing skills and finding a new job.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it larger, possibly with more locations throughout the Columbus area.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the friends I've made, and kept, among the staff and participants.

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

professional resume writers, interview coaches, and great confidence builders!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand their facilities, staff and programs to help many, many more people who need their services.

Ways to make it better...

... it could not have been better! I was thoroughly pleased with my experience.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

facility space and funding (all non-profits always need more funding!).

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is the most positive, professional group of people I have ever worked with, and their only goal is to improve the lives of those they serve.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The SUCCESS team helped me find my new job by giving me the confidence and support I needed in a very uncertain job market. The interviewing skills and networking seminars were incredibly helpful. The JFS staff is totally professional and they are dedicated to helping their clients succeed. I would highly recommend them to anyone facing a job loss/job search situation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the improved attitude and outlook of those in my SUCCESS support group. Facing a job search is very difficult - especially now - and JFS helps people keep their spirits up and keep moving forward.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand it to be able to serve even more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the positive environment - it helped keep me motivated!

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

certified professional resume writers, career coaches, and social services coordinators.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make an even bigger and better impact on job-seekers in the Columbus, OH, area.

Ways to make it better...

some of the guest speakers had been a little better. The one speaker on LinkedIn, in particular, was not very knowledgeable. Most of the speakers were excellent, however.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the number of people who currently need their services vs. the number of staff they have. I think they could double in size and still have too many clients.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I will seek to support this organization in any way I can. They provide an invaluable service.
