Dear AbilityLinks Supporter,

Jim Bersie is a very successful technical writer who took some of his time to share his employment story with AbilityLinks. Thanks Jim for telling your story and for the thoughtful advice you have for job seekers. One of the things Jim learned along the way is that “your success is determined by two areas: the quality of your work and your relationships with people.” You can read Jim’s complete AbilityLinks employed persons profile by clicking here.
