Dear Mr. King,
It was a pleasure meeting you two weeks ago at MAM. I had never heard of MAM, except as a resale store. One of the Spring Branch I.S.D teachers informed me that MAM could assist in employment search and different tutoring programs. So I decided to visit your establishment.
I was greeted by two gentlemen, Bob Lewis and Daniel Leal. Bob was very helpful with the orientation and application process, and Danny has been helpful every single time I come in. Danny is always there to assist everyone with answering a large variety of questions, whether its related to tutoring, computers, programs, etc. Danny not only helps, but reassures a person that what ever he has done to the computer it will be alright and proceeds to show that person the correct method. His bilingual capabilities, knowledge and sincerity to help others, is an asset for all who come to MAM.
I will definitely refer anyone to MAM, knowing that they will be in good hands with Mr. Daniel Leal and his associates.
Very truly yours,
Patricia M. Ruffino
Just want you to know that everything is going quite well here in Big Bear Lake, CA--
As you know, I moved back to California--August 24,2012--this is the place where I want to retire-
By completing the course; and taking the test thru Houston Community College--I actually gained a lot of self-esteem--and the typing classes really helped a lot too!!!!
I now have "Two" part-time jobs!!!!!!!!! My life is "Positively Fantastic"!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to MAM, & to You, & to Yolanda!!!!!!!!!!!!! May God Bless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am using Lynda.com and loving it!
I have obtained certifications in PowerPoint 2010 and Essentials of Time Management. I am currently pursuing Outlook 2010 in earnest. There is so much to learn!
I believe this instruction is preparing me for a better job and will look great on my resume. Thank you for this opportunity.
Great program and great people helping. They are professionals in assisting clients at finding a job. I love MAM.
MAM Employment Services helped me out a great deal. They're a group of objective professionals that help give you the tools to market yourself in a competitive job market. I honestly didn't receive any responses to my resume until I updated it through the help of the coaches at MAM.
MAM has been essential in the prepartion for a new job. Not only do I recommend the ECP course, but I encourage everyone to come and utilize the resources available, even if you have internet at home. The volunteers, managers, directors and everyone in the employment services department is truly a blessing, wrapped up in kindness, knowledge, gentleness, patience and resourcefulness. Coming to MAM has many benefits especially keeping the mind and body trained that full time hours here are a reflection of full time hours in a permanent job. Being able to talk to everyone here is helpful to keep you focused on the main course of finding a job. The course they have prepard for ECP is truly a gift. No matter where you are in life or how much you know there is always room for improvement. The ECP course was an eye opener to teach you on different subjects to help better prepare the road ahead and even after you get a job, they help you capture the essence of keeping the job. On a daily basis the staff and volunteers are there to assist, this is a blessing as it helps keep down discouragement in one's life. Their gifts of joy, laughter an encouragements are given freely and daily. They can not be found staying at home alone!
MAM has an excellent diverse team with years of work experience and credentials that enable them to assist anyone regardless of their needs. If you are just starting your career, or contemplating a mid-life career change, an older adult or displaced worker, MAM has the resources to help.
The team at MAM helped me to regain my confidence by talking about the many ways to secure an interview, then performing mock interviews. They listened to my challenges, struggles and obstacles; afterwards they provided me with solutions and choices. To me, the program does not feel like a 'one size fits all'. For me, this was very important because I felt like no one really understood the problems in my life. MAM heard me.
MAM's team of professionals support each individual based on that person's needs. I encourage you to call them today. The service is FREE, the team makes the time to listen, and most importantly, they treat you with kindness and respect.
Thank you MAM for all the things you do, starting with the Employment staff. Yolanda, Daniel and Bob, you are all awesome, and thanks also to Mary McDonald for her wonderful Excel class.
First of all, from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank each and everyone of you for all your help and patience with me.
I am now EMPLOYED with Azteca America Channel 51, as of yesterday I became the Promotions Manager. The General Manager really likes me and found the money to hire me. I started this morning, the pay they offered was very low and I negotiated and they gave me pretty close to what I was asking for. It feels great to have a job, my own office with a great view, BENEFITS IN 90 DAYS, access to company vehicle and a great boss!
GOD IS GREAT! I probably will be having a couple of days off a week so I can drop by. I will also keep everyone updated so ya can join me at the events.
I can't explain how I feel and thank you so much for all your help and especially SUPPORT!

Dear Mr. Bob King:
I got the offer! I will go through all the paper work for work permit and all sorts, and get ready for relocation!
I will keep you informed. Thank you very much for all the help you offered.
I truly appreciate everything that you and your staff and volunteers did to help me get to this job offer.
Your kindness and warmth radiates out to everyone who is fortunate to come into contact with you. Integrity and compassion are rare qualities in a person and you have an abundance of both.
It has been a privilege to work with you. Thank you for being so welcoming. You do a wonderful job and MAM and the people who enter your office are extremely lucky to meet a real angel of hope. You are a real inspiration to many.
I wanted to tell you how my self-esteem was lifted up in the past four weeks of training at MAM. Every single word made an impact in my life. I could see Jesus through all of you; now I know there's still a reminder of the grace of God through you all.
I was hopeless and I thought that I can't overcome my obstacles. I am grateful for all your help, and I really appreciate all of your kindness, and the courtesy of the entire staff and all the volunteers who make this a wonderful program.
God Bless you!
I know it’s rather late but I just wanted to thank all of you for the time you spent with me during the program. I’m sorry that I haven’t been around, but as you have said, looking for employment is a full time job. Taking your advice regarding multiple resumes got me in front of employers and landed me a full time position with a company that I had previously interviewed with about 7 years ago. They contacted me after finding my resume on Monster.com. I went through several interviews before we worked out the pay and commission plan. I had an offer letter within a few days after the final interview. I was the only person they interviewed for that position.
Let your current and new classes know that having that thirty second elevator speech ready and making sure that they know the position they are applying for really pays off.
Once again, thanks to all of you. Another successful story for MAM!
Good morning! Thank you for your return call to me last night, don’t you ever go home? I know your commitment to MAM and its clients, keeps you very busy, and yet you give everyone personal undivided attention. We are all thankful for your help and knowledge, delivered in a manner easy to receive and inspire.
When I give thanks to MAM in this letter, that thanks is directed to everyone, the MAM organization, the leaders, sponsors, churches, coaches, volunteers and not to be forgotten, the custodial care people that keep the building and grounds meticulously clean giving/making MAM maintain a professional appearance and a positive work/study place to enter and stay awhile (no hurry to get in and out, so more gets accomplished).
There is a “comfort” when entering MAM. A feeling of support, “can do” and inspiring of confidence through the teachings of the coaches and an exemplary comprehensive training guideline derived of brilliant minds, expert knowledge and genuine caring for people to help them succeed. Oh, yes and probably most important – up to date current employment guidelines and trends in today’s market, and easy to apply to one’s own personal needs.
Some day when I have more time, I will tell you how God and prayer lead me to MAM. God’s work is often done by mere mortals, living in the spirit and not the flesh. God bless you all.
I just wanted to give you the awesome news. I am employed through Farmers Insurance. I am located just four blocks down the road from you. I just wanted to personally thank you, your staff and the volunteers for all the support that was given to me. You really made a big difference in my life.
FYI as you know I have been actively pursuing this job with Caps Logistics for well over a month now. Today finally I received a call with a offer of $xx,xxx per year. Next week I will be going through the background paperwork process the following Monday in Denver for the week training then Houston based near the airport.
I don't think any of this would of been possible without you and your team's help. You helped restore my confidence and better prepared me for the (jungle) employment world. I will do my best to give back. I will be in touch ... first I have to find a car and will be very busy this next week.
Again, thank you all so much.
I just wanted to take the time to inform you all that I am now (as of last week) currently employed. It feels good to be back in the saddle and in the career that I adore.
I could not be where I am today without all of the support and nurture that I received from you guys…you gave me strength. So….I had to stop by and say “THANK YOU!!”
God is so good and he put you Angels in my path in a time when I really needed but didn’t even know that I needed the moral support. You each have a special place in my heart and words cannot express my appreciation.
If there is ANY way that I can give back I would like to do so because I believe in and am proof that organizations like yours truly work!!
May God continue to Bless you each as you continue to Bless those in need.
Thank you again,
Samantha R. Houston
