"I was very pleased with the assistance I received at iYES. I was truly interested in law...the Employment Specialist assisted me in finding a job with Milani and Associates. My supervisor there was extremely welcoming and informative. I gained a great deal of experience. My supervisor offered to write an exceptional job referral for future employment opportunities." - Sarah

"I was earnestly looking for a job in which I would feel satisfied. I met with an Employment Specialist, who referred me to James Production. One week later, I had an interview, and shortly after, I obtained an entry-level position in customer service. A few years later, I am presently working as Event Coordinator for James Production. I was able to advance and secure a great position. My deep appreciation goes out to the iYES staff for all their assistance in referring me to a great job that lead to a great future!" - Kristal

In 2000, approximately 45% of our staff was referred by iYES. In 2001, 65% of our staff consisted of college and high school students referred by the iYES staff. During the Summer Youth Job Fair in May of 2000, Skyhawks interviewed 47 applicants to fill a total of 70 jobs with our company for the summer. iYES staff understands our business and can find applicants to match our needs." - Todd Doolittle, Director - Skyhawks Academy
