More Testimonials

JSN’s Design & Focus class helped me to be confident that once the job offer did come, it was in alignment with my skills, talents, and values. It is still a good true-north plan that I can refer to from time to time and adjust to assess career and passion journey.

Enrique Class Attendee

The Design & Focus class was the turning point for my job search. Without the class, I felt lost and hopeless. It gave me direction and hope! The workshop helped me understand myself better. I learned what was a true fit in my life and career. It has also helped to restore my confidence in myself by teaching me that I have strong skills that have been underutilized. I look forward to my future now, knowing what direction I'm headed. I also look forward to when I get a job so I can pay-it-forward and help someone else take the workshop.

Kristin Class Attendee

The Design & Focus class has given me resources, information, and evaluations to implement to help me further improve my career path. It truly has opened my eyes and has provided insights on the attributes that I couldn't see I possessed by myself. The potential for success feels imminent. I feel fully equipped to take on the job market now by the horns and implement a plan to land the dream job I'm looking for. Thanks again!
