A few weeks ago, JEVS CEO Jay Spector saw a man by the name of Eddie Tomlin interviewed on NBC10 News. Eddie had lost his job due to COVID and was having a hard time finding a new one. As Jay often does when he sees people in distress, he wanted to help. So the JEVS team tracked down the reporter, Mitch Blatcher, to see if we could reach out to Eddie and offer job search help.
We connected with Mitch, who put us in touch with Eddie. Eddie knew about JEVS and was really happy to get the call. One of our job developers, Souleyman Fall, provided Eddie with resume help, coached him on some job search basics and connected him with a few hiring employers. Thanks to our efforts, Eddie found a new job!
“I could have cried. It took me up. I felt like I could touch the sky,” Eddie said upon landing his job.
Mitch and NBC10 did a follow up story on Eddie — watch the clip below.
