The staff continue to be helpful by checking in on my progress, assisting with problems that may arise...and are always there to answer questions and lend a helping hand. In future, if I do look for a new job for whatever reason, I know that I can count on META to assist me with finding a job that is right for me and providing the services I need to get me there. Past services I have used have failed to live up to my expectations and did not help in finding suitable employment that I was able to stay at for an extended period, so I am grateful for their hard work and dedication. Without them, I might still be unemployed or even somewhere that does not adequately support my needs in the workplace.
