Your workshop today featuring Career Search Tips was very helpful and insightful. I was shocked to learn that only 5-10% of jobs are found on the internet; fresh out of college, I obtained my first job via the internet. In search of my second opportunity, I have thus far utilized the internet. Going forward, I will be sure to get out and network in addition to volunteer and attend live group events. Again thank you and all the volunteers for this wonderful event. Best Regards," George T. 3/9/16

"Congratulations Jeff! Without you ongoing commitment and earnest desire to contribute to this underserved community, many job seekers would still be lost without direction and a sense of knowing where and how to access the vital information you provide on an on-going basis.

When I entered into the search mode (after 30+ years) in January, I would never have imagined the depth of the resources that are out there. I have friends/former co-workers in other cities going through this and they simply have nothing on the same level that those in the DFW area have. My sincere thank you for all you do to make this journey a bit less scary and overwhelming for so many. You are a jewel!" Cathy A. 5/9/13

Until I was unemployed, I was not aware of the various networking groups, your website and LinkedIn group. Congratulations!" Marcia P. 9/17/12
I hope that you are very proud of yourself; I know I would be if I were you!

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for your exceptional presentation this morning! Hopefully you could see how engaged our group was with your information – hanging on your every syllable. The feedback we received was glowing, stating your information was so valuable to them – “perhaps the best presentation they’d ever seen!” It doesn’t get any better than that, does it? You have the gift of breaking it down into doable steps, and I could see the lights going off in their heads as it all made so much sense. As I shared with you, I had not explored all that your website has to offer myself, and I was so impressed and enlightened today. What a gold mine you’ve created!! Your style is humorous, also, and as you pointed out, looking for work is hard, and everyone needs a laugh along this journey. We also greatly appreciated the extra time you spent answering questions when we know your time is so valuable. It was a complete honor to have you here at The Senior Source finally, and you certainly went above & beyond today. Your sincere desire to help others certainly comes through in your presentation. We would love to have you back sometime in the future, if your busy schedule will permit. Once again, thanks for sharing your time and wisdom with our seniors." Claire T. 4/5/12

"If you have never heard Jeff speak about CareerDFW.org, I highly recommend attending. I thought I was familiar with CareerDFW.org. After I heard Jeff speak to the Carrollton Career Focus Group about it, I realized I was not using all it had to offer." Barbara R. Project Manager 3/18/12
Jeff, Thank you for taking so much of your personal time to create such a wonderful tool. I want to personally thank you for coming to the group and going over CareerDFW specifics. I have been using the website for a while and did not even realize that it had some of the great links/files on it that it does. You did an awesome job in presenting the website (probably a little easier to present it since YOU created it) and answering our questions. Thank you again. Sincerely, Wanda S. Supply Chain / Projects / Logistics Leader 3/5/12
"I am happy to let you know that I landed a full time position as Business Process Analyst. In the very first FWCSN meeting, one of the resources I heard about was www.CareerDFW.com. I went to their site and saw where there was an upcoming job fair (on their calendar page). I attended the fair in October and ended up talking to many hiring managers which resulted in getting invited to 2 follow up face to face interviews...It just goes to show...that you never know where your next job will come from."Byron A. 1/7/12

Suddenly I find myself in uncharted territory, often not knowing what I am “supposed” to do next. I am really touched by persons such as you. You give your time and your talents unselfishly, in order to empower us with more/better tools that will enrich our job search, as well as making it more productive and effective. You also do a great job of maintaining the integrity and plethora of information on the CareerDFW website. You don’t have to do all of this for us, but I personally want to say Thank You.
