Review for Jewish Family Services, Columbus, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I lost my job in 2009, I had not been out of work in years. A friend recommended the SUCCESS program with JFS, which I joined. Throughout my job search, I became depressed, gained weight, and there were days when I was overwhelmed and down. Throughout the whole process, my counsellor, Karen Hughes, served as my biggest cheerleader, helped me to brainstorm, and encouraged me to attended the weekly meetings.

I attended a workshop to become more acquainted with LinkedIn, several weekly informal sessions and a couple of the more formal Wednesday morning sessions and found every service provided to me from JFS to be exceptional.

I am in a long term contract role, now, but still have not landed that elusive full time job; however, Karen continues to provide me with help and guidance. The SUCCESS program provides so much more than resources to help locate work; it provides comfort, support, suggestions, training, and all the resources a roomful of highly trained professionals can employ.

I cannot recommend this program or JFS enough.
