Re-Starting My Life and Discovering My Passion

I happened to be roaming the Bronx and for some strange reason, I stumbled upon this Library. While on the 4th floor of this beautiful glass building, I kept noticing the stairs leading to another level and they seemed to be beckoning for me to come upstairs. I followed my spirit and that is exactly what I did. I perused the posted flyers as well as those that were on display and I noticed an office filled with people smiling and I wanted to know what was going on. That is when I met, Robyn Saunders, Career Coach. What a wonder! She suggested that I sit down and began to ask me questions about my career path. In other words, what matters most in my life and What was my passion? Funny, at that moment I really did not have an answer and we continued to talk. I have been wanting to do something with my life; but had no sense of direction. The more we conversed, the more we uncovered and she stated that I do not have to walk this journey alone. I have a co-pilot that can help me discover what values most to me and find my purpose. Don't get me wrong, she is not some guru, but she is a COACH. My new found Friend and sister! A LIFE COACH, A CAREER COACH And, she is rooting for me.......Wowwwwww! Life begins and ends with ME. Ms. Saunders understands completely and totally. I can't wait for our next meeting. People stay posted!

Never new that a library could be this helpful

Well, i came to the bronx libray, to do my resume and i ended up metting a beautifull person with a big heart, so now i feel very confident that im going to get the help i need to succeed.

Job Search Central at Bronx Library Central

For the first time in my job search I feel as though employment is eminent, as apposed to elusive. Ms Saunders has been more encouraging and instrumental than I have previously encountered in many other venues and Mr. Kabir has restored my faith in humanity. The help and information I have received thus far has already been invaluable and they aren't done with me yet! It is this dedication that must continue to be supported and acknowledged at all costs!

Just Got A Job and Dress Attire!

I want to commend the effective workshops that Ms. Robyn Saunders had conducted between November and December as of 2012. The workshops provide the necessary communication skills to be conducted when attending job interviews. Ms. Saunders had taken the time consuming process of manifesting my resume and my cover letter with eye catching computer applications. I would implore the officials of New York City to provide more workshops in order to assist more applicants into finding gainful employment. I have applied at employment agencies, and I find they were nowhere as effective and trustworthy as the workshops conducted by Ms. Saunders. Due to the recommended strategies of finding employment by Ms. Saunders, I diligently and patiently was able to locate a job through the Internet. I thank Ms. Saunders for her extremely reliable job seeking resources and strategies in order to eventually find gainful employment. I am one of the 100 men to gain dress attire donated by The Mens Wearhouse! Who would have thought that the Library would be this helpful! Thanx

Ms. Robyn Saunders was very instrumental in helping me land a good job.

Discovering My Passion

Perfect customer service, learned valuable tips for interviews. I loved my resume. Ms. Saunders is very informative, inspiring and right on point. She helped to think my true passion and directed me to where people who are in my craft are. I think, I will pay attention to the gift that I was given called Singing! And get a job!

Just Got A Job!

I finally got my first job!!I am 19 years old and Deals gave me the opportunity to work as a cashier. I can not be any happier!! Bronx Library Center gave me a big push because of all the help they gave me with my resume. My interviewers were really impress with it!! It has been an amazing experience!!

My experience with the CEIS.

In the past, I have had occasion to utilize the services of similar programs. I have never been so hopeful and motivated before now. Upon my initial encounter with the staff here, I knew that my search was over. The assistance I have received is and will be perpetually invaluable to me. Ms Saunders and Mr. Kabir often work many hours, above and beyond and have shown infinite patience and understanding with an often impatient and some times ungrateful clientele. Among this particular group, I do not include myself because I, myself, will always be eternally grateful. I now feel better armed to face the challenges ahead and I am looking forward to what I know is a new and challenging position I will secure, thanks to the help and support I have received at the Bronx Library Center-Career and Information Services.

My Experience

The CEIS Department has been educational, forward thinking and professional. I would recommend these services to my neighbors, friends and family. Now, I Look forward to the next process of my Job Search. I knew that Ms. Saunders would help me and she provided me professional styled resumes! Wonderful and Exceptional!

I believe that this is a

I believe that this is a positive (they won't give me my resumes, unless I do this) department and I especially want to thank Mr. Kabir because he is very special and now I am ready for the world, because of Mr. Kabir! Thanx Guys, you all make me smile!

My Experience at Bronx Library Center's CEIS Department

I came to the CEIS looking for help as a returning citizen and CEIS provided me with a lot of help. Ms. Robyn Saunders welcomed me back into the community with open arms and she helped me get the resources that I need to start again and thrive after so many years. I give credit to Ms. Robyn Saunders for showing me that people are still willing to teach you things and supply you with help. Ms. Robyn Saunders provided me with the support I needed to convince myself that I will have a bright future from now on.
