The Friendship House is looking for mentors who could share skills including; how to set up a budget, job interview skills, resume writing, etc.
Please see a recent email from a client to her Mentor.
It is with God’s Grace, I had the pleasure of meeting with you today for your world-class expertise, with which you are anointed, to help me accomplish my goal of sustainable, gainful employment, and potentially furthering my growth as an asset to future employers. You seem to get joy from recognizing problems and making business ideas work, not just for my resume and interviews during my transition back to an administrative assistant position from CNA, but for life. I especially appreciate the following valuable advice: (1) practice in the mirror how to K.I.S.S. (keep it short and simple Prov. 10:19b), and (2) review my job history to summarize it well.
Thank you for serving with the utmost dignity and respect, demonstrating your responsible and compassionate spirit.
