Joel has found employment in the construction industry

Before I got in touch with Jesuit Social Services, I had been unemployed for over six months after I was laid off from my previous job. I was struggling financially and frustrated after putting in a heap of unsuccessful job applications.

After making contact with your program, I had an interview with Winslow Constructors within a week. A couple of days later I was working in the construction industry with well-paid permanent employment.

Since my initial contact, the team from Jesuit Social Services have helped me get a clearer idea of my employment goals and provided me with so much helpful advice, even working through my resume to make me more appealing candidate.

I am amazed with the experience I have had and could not be happier with the outcome. My family of six are all grateful and thank the Major Projects team for going the extra mile for me.
