The Job Shop was started to find solutions to people's needs. We also enjoy participating in and encouraging our applicants to participate in events that benefit the community, such as The AIDS Walk and Toys for Tots. Recently, The Job Shop's staff participated in cleaning up Ocean Beach for the national day of service and volunteered our service to a local women's shelter to provide assistance with interviewing tips, résumé assistance, and employment. The way we see it, giving back to the community is one way of using our expertise in a productive manner.

At The Job Shop we also encourage the support of local and international charities and have been dedicated to giving back to the community we live and work in.

On January 19th of 2009 (MLK day) The Job Shop staff felt Inspired by President Obama’s call for one day of service and was eager to volunteer our time and energy to make a difference in our community. We decided to volunteer in the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and headed out to Ocean Beach to help clean up and do our part.

On October 10th of 2008 The Job Shop was proud to celebrate our first 10 years in business. The celebration was held at the newly-refurbished Legion of Honor and we were happy to spend the evening enjoying food, drinks and live jazz with all who attended.

Our eighth annual Holiday Toy Drive!! Once again, we were happy to deliver many large boxes of new toys and other goodies to San Francisco charity Glide Memorial! Thanks to everyone who contributed to our efforts in making the 2006 holiday season a little brighter for those in need. The people at Glide were most appreciative and grateful.

Holiday Toy and Food Drive!! With charities reporting a lower number of volunteers and donations in 2002, we felt it was especially important to give back to our community this year. Thanks to those who contributed to our donation box.

Rebuilding Together 2002!! Our project this year was for Mrs. Pope, a California resident since the Depression years, whose home is in San Francisco's Bernal Heights. Over the past decade, her physical disabilities have left her unable to walk without crutches, and she has difficulty doing daily activities on her own, including two of her favorite past times - crocheting and sewing. The improvements that we made on April 27 included making her home safer and easier to get around. Her life is typically lonely and she says it was a real treat to have some young, energetic people around that weekend. We are continuing to make post-April 27th visits to Mrs. Pope to keep her spirits uplifted! The Job Shop thanks everyone involved for their support!

Our third annual Holiday Toy Drive!! We were happy to deliver another big box of new toys and other goodies to San Francisco charity Glide Memorial! Thanks to everyone who contributed to our efforts in making the holidays a little brighter for those in need. The people at Glide were most appreciative and grateful.

American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund!! The profits from our purchase of Flag Ribbon Pins were donated directly to help relief efforts from the September 11th attacks. We distributed the pins to our clients, candidates and other friends.

Our 2nd year at Special Links Women's Golf Tournament!! The third annual tournament to benefit Special Olympics Marin was held on Monday, October 15, 2001 and we came in third - not too shabby! Liz, Michelle, Judi, Marla, Desiree and Eileen had a great time pitching in for this charity event and making some new friends along the way!

More work with SOMA Partnership Graduates!! We conducted mock interviews in our office and later gave feedback on the candidate's strengths and extended advice that could make their job searches more successful.

A few weeks later, Kemp Bigelow, Associate here at The Job Shop, along with 15 other business members from the community, volunteered for SOMA Partnership's Shadow Day. Dressed in the program's signature jackets and gloves, equipped with brooms, dustpans and trash cans, they spent the morning sweeping and cleaning sidewalks in the area alongside program members. This was all followed by a graduation ceremony where 4 hard-working people matriculated through this extensive program.

SOMA Partnership Graduates 2001!! Recruiters from the Job Shop met with graduates from the Soma Partnership Program (a tough program to complete!) to offer them guidance in their upcoming job searches. We offered tips on creating a resume that gets results, covered questions that may be asked during an interview, made suggestions for proper business etiquette and attire and tried to offer other useful advice to aid them as they move forward to further successes. Congratulations Graduates!

Rebuilding Together 2001!! It was a bigger project than we anticipated and we'd like to thank everyone for their hard work and perseverance! All the painting, cleaning, clearing, pruning and hauling we did means Mr. Crump can actually enjoy his backyard in his retirement and feel safer in his house. He is grateful to the volunteers for your good service and The Job Shop thanks you for your support. See you next time!

Special Links Women's Golf Tournament!! The second annual tournament to benefit Special Olympics Marin was held on Monday, October 16, 2000 at The StoneTree Golf Club. Liz, Michelle, Judi, Marla and Anne all had a blast challenging the 18 hole championship course for this very worthy charity!

SOMA Partnership!! The Job Shop is proud to sponsor this not-for-profit corporation which is dedicated to helping people get their lives back on track. SOMA Partnership provides intensive employment training to formerly homeless individuals while simultaneously improving the South of Market community. These people must attend training for six months and be on time every day! You may have noticed participants sweeping neighborhood sidewalks, removing refuse, performing tree and plant care and more. As San Francisco's SOMA district continues to change and grow, The Job Shop is happy to support an organization dedicated not only to promoting the area's cleanliness and safety, but to helping people who are trying to change and grow as well.

AIDS Walk 2000!! We're grateful to all our friends who made the journey out to Golden Gate Park on a drizzly Sunday morning to help raise funds for AIDS research! It's never too late to make a contribution; just stop in our office and we'd be happy to forward your donation to AIDS Walk San Francisco. The Job Shop looks forward to the day when this annual fundraiser is no longer necessary.

Thanks to our Christmas in April 2000 volunteers!! Helen was crying tears of joy as the last volunteers left that evening. She couldn't believe the major improvements that we were able to make happen in just one day. The Job Shop would like to acknowledge everyone who participated, donated their time, supplies and/or funds to help repair and restore Helen's home. Thanks for your great work and spirit!

Happy results from our Holiday Toy Drive for Glide Memorial Church !!
Thanks to everyone who dropped off a donation this year! We gathered up many boxes of toys and dolls which were then distributed to local children in need by the good
folks at Glide.
