What our Clients are Saying…

My brother was out of work, and Pacific Opportunities led him to successful employment. Rachael and her team worked with him throughout the entire process: they helped him write his resume, met with him weekly to practice interview techniques, helped him fill out applications, and found a job that fits his skills perfectly. They also worked with the new employer as he learned the job and made regular contact with all parties to ensure he knew his tasks and the employer was happy with his performance. I was so impressed with the care and communication that Rachael and her team showed every step of the way. I am so thankful for the services of Pacific Opportunities, Inc.”

“Pacific Opportunities gave me the breakthrough I’ve been needing! I’ve wanted to work at a real job for so long, but previous support never followed through to really meet my needs. Pacific Opportunities taught me how to interview well. I now have a job that I love and the best part is that they continue to provide support. Thank you!”
