Client Story Videos

  • My experience with employU was a great one; it allowed me to practice not only graphic design and comic creation, but how to work from home, work around a schedule, and pay attention to the needs of a client when creating something meant to help others.
  • For the first time, we found ourselves in need of a job coach for our disabled grandson. We needed someone who specialized in assisting him to learn and accurately carry out his job duties. A job coach is allowed on the job site to coach on the premises.  They are also able to explain to management personnel how to best assist him to success.

    We vetted 3 companies referred to us by Agency for Persons with Disabilities before we decided on employU.  We felt they could best meet our grandson's needs.

    Our job coach, Jernice has met our expectations.  She attends meetings, and provides real-time feedback to us to ensure we are all on the same page.  Her passion for assisting our grandson is recognized by all.

    We highly recommend employU to anyone who is considering career coaching to enhance their career.  They are very beneficial and can gain access and insight where family members cannot.

    Thanks for all that you do!!

She has been a true blessing and still remains [in communication] with me with assisting me with my current position... [She has] been there for me for so many things. I appreciate [her] in so many ways...There are no words to express the gratitude I have."

Usually I'm not the type of person to really talk that much in the classrooms but I ended up talking a LOT more than I expected. Ashley was very detailed with her wording and also made things easier for my mind. All of my questions were answered and I feel hyped to find a job and improve myself even more."

  • "employU is really well rounded and sees the complete picture of employment. Thank you for appointing Anthony to serve as my son Brandon’s Employment Specialist. When we started the process with employU it was amazing from the beginning to the end. Anthony was kind and patient with Brandon and assisted him with his paperwork, job coaching and even asked about Brandon’s passions to get a 'right fit' for employment. Anthony assured me that he would find him the right job because the sky was the limit for Brandon."
