“When I came to NhN, I was just laid off from a job I'd had for 20-years. It was quite a shock. Coming to NhN introduced me to other people that were in the same boat, most had lost long-term jobs. They were friendly and not intimidating. While I wasn't ready to get going on an elevator speech, they encouraged me and held me accountable each week. They also spoke of skill improvement, and I took advantage of various classes at community school as well as the library. I was able to land a job within three months of my unemployment.”
