"I definitely recommend Kababayan if you’re looking for help with your job search. Parisa, the employment counselor, was great at helping me put together my resume and sent over a lot of useful emails about job opportunities. We had a couple of phone calls where she spoke Farsi, which made things so much easier for me. She’s very helpful!"
