Rosa, Rob, and Luis,
One year ago the three of you helped me when I was at one of the lowest points in my life. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done in keeping my spirits up and getting me back to work. Thank you!
“This has been an awesome experience for me. Donna is excellent and very knowledgeable. I applied for 4 positions by 10:00 am and by noontime I received 2 phone calls. I have two interviews within the next week. One of the positions pays over $50,000 annually and is in my field of work. I’m super excited and will use the interview skills I learned.”
“The people at career point in holyoke are true professionals..they are helpful and care about people..they have a level of kindness that i see very rarely”.
“Nothing but praise. I think the workshops are grreat thou didn’t go to as many as wanted to since I found a job but I believe they are all helpful. Great resources.”

“Wow! I am so appreciative of all the hard work, effort and time Greg put into my resume. Thank you so much! I will likely edit the resume a bit from what he created, but overall, I think it looks fantastic and will stick closely to the format he set up. I really like the new layout he devised and as I hadn’t changed the format of my resume in two years, it’s great to see this new, clean, layout. I also appreciate the cover letter templates and references sheet. Again, thank you! I can see why he does what he does….he is very good at it!”

A year ago, I came to Elizabeth kind of lost. I didn’t know where I was in life and felt very low. She got me to climb mountains and face things I didn’t have the courage to face. Nobody has been able to do that ever again. I thank here from the very soul of my heart. I pray this new career works out and this is a much better year.
Thank you so much and keep doing what you do best. Making people smile!

CareerPoint of Holyoke was introduced to me in 2012 by a representative at a Chamber event. I made an appointment to meet with Yolanda to find out more about what this organization offers, what they do for the local community & what can they do for my company. The staff at CareerPoint are professional, enthusiastic and organized. I was honored to be able to participate in a few events that I was invited to. I am happy to say we were able to support/donate to the Youth Summer Job Program 2014, attend a Job Fair for our Veterans and was introduce with other staff members. The Job Fair was well organized, productive and resulting in positive results. It helped not only for the applicate it also help bring awareness to my business. With their help , I would like to build a future partnership to offer a whole wide range of resources for community growth and development. Looking forward in participating in other events/fairs/programs.

“I have had the pleasure of working with the veteran’s representative, Linda Candage, for about a year. She has gone above and beyond to assist me with job search, resume writing, and the completion of a very involved TSA federal application. Linda is diligent, dedicated, and knowledgeable. If she does not know an answer to my question, she has the resources to provide an answer in a rapid manner. She follows through to completion, is detailed oriented, and is genuinely compassionate. She has put my mind at ease during major life changes that I’ve recently experienced, and has helped me through various challenges. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Linda for everything she has done for me. She is professional, “down to earth” and one of the most giving individuals that I have met. I look so forward to meeting with her as she provides a positive and uplifting atmosphere. She is an asset to the veterans at CareerPoint.”

I had the pleasure of working with Darlene from January-March 2012 through the various workshops, TORQWORKS, and a one-on-one meeting to help me through a career transition (or what I like to call “what do I wanna be when I grow up” all over again). She was helpful and encouraging during our one-on-one meeting and what I have now experienced is that it is possible to apply skills from a completely different career to some new.
Many thanks and kind regards,

“I would like to extend a huge “Thank you” to my counselor, Marilyn Maldonado. There are truly no words for how she has helped me get through one of the hardest moments I have ever endured. It is my pleasure to say that she is my inspiration. Her upbeat personality, along with her passion for her job, taught me that we can push through any experience and muster up all our strength to succeed in life. She was supportive of me as I continued in my studies. If it weren’t for this exceptional program, I don’t think I would have had the motivation to continue to greater things. Although the work load along with nearly being homeless, had made me feel stressed, Marilyn has always been able to help me turn that around and make me feel welcome and confident in my own abilities.
Thank you for my New Life.”
