I volunteer with Phase2Careers, because it is THE institution everyone turns to on the SF Peninsula when looking for employment or looking to hire. Phase2Careers is the place to brush up on your job search skills, learn new ones, and network with people who can introduce you to your next employer.
Ron Visconti, the founder and driving force behind Phase2Careers, organizes so many great networking and educational events and gives so much of his own time, energy, and love to help job seekers in the San Francisco Bay Area, that I am inspired to be part of the process, and use my experience and skills to help make them happen. I get so much more than I give from volunteering with Phase2Careers. 
I highly recommend volunteering with Phase2Careers whether you are looking for a job, looking to hire, want experience to add to your resume, or simply want to have fun and hangout with great people Phase2Careers attracts.

"Phase2careers gave me the opportunity to network, build solid relationships, practice my interviewing skills and gave me a chance to give back.

Ultimately, I received more than I gave and I am forever grateful for the valuable resources that this organization makes easily accessible to all.

I am about to start my new job thanks to a connection I made at one of its events."


The workshops and classes that Phase2Careers offers really helped me get through a rough time.  Thank you for putting together this nice "safety net" of job search related programs.  
I'm looking forward to getting back to work!
