Ten minutes later she came back with a job prospect that was what I wanted to do, located where I wanted to work, and at the desired pay rate. I was impressed by her initiative and knowledge and the ease with our conversation. She may have helped me find my “dream job” and showed me some new tools to use in my search."- Mike Anderson

"I want to thank you for all of your help during the
Résumé Writing course. I was admittedly discouraged before
I went to CareerPoint and was sure that I would not be able
to find a job that would be a good match for me, but your
positive attitude gave me the push I needed to recognize that
I indeed do have marketable skills – even without having
a “Paying” job for many years. Per your suggestion,
I highlighted my transferable skills on my résumé and was
fortunate enough to find a company that recognized and appreciated
my highly unconventional background! I would not have been
able to do it without your help. Thank you so much for everything!"

"It would be hard to say which services were most valuable
to me because the services are well integrated to
support the job search process. Two services, however,
that I found most useful were Job Club where I was able
to exchange job search sites, successes and failures
with other job seekers and one on one where I was able
to explore the many employment options. The training
that I received at CareerPoint allowed me to achieve
my life long dream of being a self employed cabinet
maker." - Donald Haynes

of difference in upgrading my skills. I think your staff is
excellent and your support has been invaluable." - Virginia

"One of the things that really struck me about
CareerPoint was the sincere and personal interest that
each staff member showed me. After months of feeling
like I’d never find the job I deserved, in just
a few short weeks the staff had me convinced that it
was just around the corner, and it was! What a beautiful
group of individuals. I would like to thank you all
for your professionalism and sincere dedication to helping
others. You all do truly make a difference." -
