After updating my resume and cover letter per the resume writing seminar and LinkedIn basic training I immediately received an e-mail from a recruiter with a job prospect. I responded with my resume and the recruiter called me and asked if he could submit my resume to the client the same day. After giving him approval he asked me if he could meet me in person for a face-to-face meeting this week. Thank you JS101 and thank you seminar instructors!

I have no words to describe how JS101 has helped me in my job search journey. Initially, I hesitated about the idea of once more going over resume writing and interview preparation. I had already done that in college and I felt I knew all about it. I was wrong. There were an infinite number of skills I still needed to learn. All my appreciation goes to our excellent coaches and my cohort class.

The instructors are excellent and have a superb knowledge of the job market and job searching strategies. They also go out their way to personalize each lesson based upon job seekers' specific needs.
Please keep up the excellent work! The JS101 organization has a very positive impact for job seekers in Houston and provides quality service and encouragement that is often hard to find elsewhere.

JS101 conducted the best resume writing and interview preparation course I have ever attended. Their professionalism, knowledge and honesty was like no other class I have taken before. The quality resume I walked away with is evidence of their skill and I am confident in my ability to obtain employment.

The JS101 class helped me focus on my future goals and determine what they were. With that, I was able to understand and complete a much better resume for what I'm looking for now and also a resume that I will need in the future for accomplishing my goals. It raised my confidence tremendously! I have no doubt that I'll get the job I want now - and in the future.

I just got an offer this morning from a major oil company! It was at the salary that I wanted and so, thankfully no haggling was needed. I accepted it a few minutes ago. I will be an IT Project Manager for the company. I am thrilled! I will start within the next 2 weeks! Thank you a hundred times over for all the help that you all gave to me. I learned so much from each of you and your classes helped to keep me optimistic and positive during my search. I will sing the praises of JS101 to everyone that I know.

Good news, I have been re-hired by another division of my previous employer! Thanks to the interviewing techniques we went over in class I was relaxed and confident during the interview! The networking techniques will also prove useful as I meet new colleagues and customers. Thank you so much to JS101 instructors for your help and wisdom during the August classes! I definitely hope you continue teaching this valuable series!

As you already know, looking for a job can sometimes be very lonely and soul crushing, if a person allows it. I could go on and on, but please know that you make a tremendous difference and I very much appreciate all that is needed to make this program possible. As I progress in my career I will take your generosity and pay it forward to others as opportunities allow -- your program creates that kind of positive ripple in our community. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
