“My experience with EBC at reachability was great as the facilitator was helpful with my questions and listened to all my challenges with respect to job searching. The program materials were also helpful regarding preparing for an interview, the result of which was getting a position with (a local law firm). I would like to thank all the staff for helping me and being so responsive with a positive attitude.”
