downturn of our economy four years ago, I stumbled into the
Job Shop on my last thread of optimism and hope. Having met
with a number of staffing agencies prior, I was expecting
the same detached “corporate” environment, but was pleasantly
surprised to find just the opposite. Every person, from the
receptionist to the various recruiting agents were all so
refreshingly kind, flexible and attentive. I immediately met
with Jojo Varona, who quickly embraced my resume and eagerness
for a job with the kind of tenacity that we all hope for in
a recruiting agent. Jojo spruced up my resume in ways that
I would have never thought of and despite my lack of experience
at the time, he treated me no different from any other candidate.
Within a couple of weeks, I began temping at my current job
where I have been for the past four years. If it wasn’t for
Jojo and the rest of the staff at the Job Shop, I have absolutely
no idea where I would be today. I would recommend any family
member, friend, job seeker or employer to meet with Jojo and
his staff. It will truly be worth their while.”

applicants and valued clients.
“The JobShop is a blessing!
After a month or so of signing up with them I was placed for
a temp position. Three months later I was offered a permanent
position and now I am happily employed at an amazing company.
A special thanks to Warren Manuntag for looking out for me.”

worked with The Job Shop since 2006 and they have been stellar
in sending their best candidates for temporary support. They
are experienced recruiters, who consistently source out some
of the most qualified individuals to fill all of my temp assignments.
Most of these candidates are worthy of permanent hire and
I often wish that I had open positions to place these great
candidates into full time opportunities. Always in the market
for temp-support, I have had to call The Job Shop last minute,
and without fail, they provide skilled candidates - in a timely
manner - each and every time. The Job Shop is my go-to for
temp assignments and I highly recommend contacting Michelle,
Warren or Jojo if you are in the market for qualified support.
The Job Shop staff is the best in the recruiting business."

"Thanks for meeting
with me this morning. The Job Shop is, without a doubt, the
friendliest agency I've encountered. Thank you for that, and
for your honesty and kindness. I will look into obtaining
copies of my test scores, as you requested. In the meantime,
I'm interested in the receptionist position you mentioned.
Let me know what I may do to tailor my resume for the opportunity.
Thanks again. I look forward to working with you."
"I wanted to thank
you for sending us Richard as a temporary employee in our
litigation department this week. His work was very good, he
was eager to learn and do well, and his disposition excellent.
He was extremely helpful and is an asset to The Job Shop.
We will definitely think of him again in the future if we
need another temporary employee."
