"The PIO helped me find a job …I had been looking for a job for many years and coud never get one. Due to my age, it was difficult to get into the job market. They helped me believed in me and in my capabilities to work; I was already discouraged because I always got negative answers when it came to work"


"I have been very well treated and 5-star, Drª Selma has been very patient with me and has done everything she can to find me a job. She has informed me of training, has been persistent, and has even posed as a psychologist because of my current life"
