The CEIS Department

Since the first time I walked into this department, I felt welcomed, comfortable and relaxed. CEIS is a very friendly atmosphere and the professionals up there are phenomenal, they really know their stuff. I would recommend their services to anyone! I look forward to working with you all. Mr. Kabir is very, very personable with a great personality, especially when he says "Ain't Know Body Got Time For That!" Great place to be! Love Matt

A New Job - A New Experience

Robyn has made a big difference in the lives of job-seekers, I for one can honestly say, if weren't for Robyn, I would probably not be working at this very moment. I would absolutely refer anyone for assistance from the CEIS department. The work done on resumes are impeccable and the personal guidance she provides in helping people secure employment is Wonderful. I am starting my new job as a Peer Specialist and I look forward to impacting the lives of my clients; the way that Robyn's office impacts the lives of people in this community. In closing, Thank you so much Robyn, keep doing what you are doing! I Love You! Darnell Thornton

Thank You!

Dear Robyn, On behalf of group co-moderators Henry and Esha, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you for engaging the students, and adults, in our Job Readiness & Financial Literacy group today at East Bronx Academy. Our group was a richer session thanks to your contributions, and the opportunity you informed us about, YMCA Global Teens 2014, sounds like an amazing learning experience. We appreciated your time and insights today, and we look forward to working with you in the future, too! Best, Ben

A Warm and Friendly Atmosphere at The Bronx Library Center

I am very satisfied with my Resume and I am very grateful that this office and the services they provide are available to the community residents of the Bronx. I recommend Ms. Saunders to everybody, she makes everyone feel happy and tries not to let them down. When we cry; she helps to remove the tears. She does not discriminate! Thank you. Kubrat O. Scott

I AM SPEECHLESS!

I just want to let everyone know that my session with the CEIS Department was very, very, very resourceful. I do recommend others to meet with Robyn Saunders for Career Path direction and Mr. Kabir for library assistance. They are a great TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS.

Incredibly Grateful

Ms. Saunders is a very talented and gifted individual. Thank you for everything, your patience, your knowledge, and your hospitality. It is always a pleasure to work with you.

The Baychester Experience

Today, I did not expect the experience and the knowledge I acquired by attending the this seminar and well as with the other women in attendance. This experience was encouraging, enlightening and knowledgeable. I learned that I am more valuable than I thought or was told. My stock value has risen exceedingly. I am truly an asset and not a liability. Ms. Saunders, is going to help me revise my resume, so that others can know what my true value are and what I bring to the table. Bringing a Career Services Department to the Baychester, shows that we have not been forgotten. Thank You, NYPL for thinking about this community. Tonee Nelson, A Library Enthusiast!

Grateful for the services at Bronx Library Center

I am more than satisfied with the level of service and cooperation that Ms. Saunders has provided. I cam in with a regular, out-dated resume. And, I left feeling confident, and extremely ecstatic about how she reconstructed, extracted and designed something that only an employer would understand. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH, THEY ARE GOOD...THEY KNOW THEIR STUFF! Thank you, Mr. Mayfield Pssss. I am going to tell all my friends, family and neighbors about this free service!
