Santa Cruz, CA — Jim Zaun is now happily employed. At age 63, in an industry where younger workers have the edge in software technology, and where some family members have serious medical issues, Jim’s outlook for a new job was dim. “I was really scared, and did not know how I was going to pay all the bills,” said Jim. “And then I found PROFILE.”
Today, Jim has a high paying, permanent job in high tech software with benefits. And he has concessions that allow him to work from home, part time to deal with care for his family. medical issues.
Jim explains“It took me almost a year to get back on my feet. But without PROFILE’s support and training, it very likely would not have happened at all. The networking and social engagement with other PROFILE members helped me regain my confidence. And the PROFILE training gave me the edge I needed to compete in a very tough job market. Thanks PROFILE for all you have done for me.”
