I am unemployed in Lakewood and I am aware that I am not the only one. I would like to ask others to weigh in on how they found a way to employment. So far the only one that has tried to help me is Daniel Soloff from PCS (Professional Career Services) and his staff. I am truly amazed how Daniel Soloff and staff treat everyone seeking a job with such individualized attention. I would love to hear from others if they have any other leads beside for Daniel Soloff and staff of PCS.

I’m very glad people are giving credit where it is due. I know many people helped by PCS and am amazed how Daniel Soloff trained his staff to take everyone’s situation to heart, but Lakewood needs more. Lo uchal levady se’es eschemSeptember 7, 2011 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #807786Sam BendovMember

I would also suggest trying to do something on your own, while you look for work…When I was out of work I’d sell things on Ebay and Craigslist…Of course, finding the “stuff” to sell isn’t easy…September 7, 2011 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #807792Rina SchiffMember

grump, why must you complain if you agree that daniel soloff is “great” why don’t you fargin if the a few chevra he helped want to show hakaros hatov. why do you enjoy an “unemployment forum” which is negative, rather than “praise daniel soloff” which is happy.September 7, 2011 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #807795a maminParticipant
PCS also has an office in Boro Park that help hundreds of candidates. It is a wonderful organization, whoever they are able to help, Hakal Revach. There is no fee either.
Anyone know of good positions available can also call in to PCS. The greatest tzedaka is helping someone find a job!!

I don’t know of any jobs offhand, but I hear things from time to time.
Sarah, do you have a degree in teaching? What subjects did you teach? If you don’t mind staying in the same line of work, maybe you can do some tutoring? You can often charge a decent amount per hour, and there’s no marking papers afterward. You just have to make sure to document everything for tax purposes, as you will be self-employed and responsible for reporting the income on your own.September 7, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #807797holykugelParticipantSeptember 8, 2011 3:26 am at 3:26 am #807802relaxationMember
The right guy to call at PCS is moishy tirberg 7184361900 I think ext 15. He helped find me and my wife find very good jobs, yes I want sent on many interviews that I turned down. As many frum employers offer dead end jobs. Thanks moishySeptember 8, 2011 3:30 am at 3:30 am #807803floewyMember
What a kiddush Hashem Yidden looking out for each other! just wanted to point out it is not enough for the unemployed to go to the agencies for help the one’s hiring have to approach the community agencies.September 8, 2011 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #807804a maminParticipant
Floewy: You are 100% correct. We need all the Yiden out there to hire ONLY yidden! Who else should help our own brothers and sisters? There all all sorts of qualified candidates, you just need to specify what you are looking for! Hire someone you can trust!September 8, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #807805
One reason a lot of people in Lkwd stay in Kollel is because even if they find a job if they leave, the amount they’d make wouldn’t come near what they are getting now. Because of all the gov. programs besides the Kollel check.September 8, 2011 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #807806gavra_at_workParticipant

I said there are those who want to leave, but feel that they can’t make it if they do, because if they leave – all they will be able to get, if at all, is an entrance level salary and then they will have to live on a lot less then they are now!September 9, 2011 4:34 am at 4:34 am #807810Geshmakke MentchMember

Anyone else notice how Sarah Cohen10, gimpelstrasser, simchatzufreedan, Rina Schiff, floewy, and Sam Bendov all have only posted on one thread – this one – and are all brand new members? Add to that the fact that both Sarah Cohen and Grumpy Gimpel start of their response in the same uncommon way – “dear so and so.” Add to that that a lot of these brand new usernames are actual names; not the most common choice among us posters.
I don’t have to be a mod or a detective to see that this is one big fat trolling thread.
good catch. they also share an IP address. thread closed.
