“The NESS program was very helpful. I was able to improve my grammar, writing and computer skills. I was also able to improve my interview skills, to write resumes and cover letters for different job and finally able to manage my finances. I thank my instructor for all the effort and support they provided me in order to be a better job seeker and boost my confidence to be able to deal and speak to anyone without hesitation.”
