“Francine is a wonderful professional to work with. She is able to balance her workshops with concrete information as well as an astute ability to empathize and hear workshop participants’ questions and concerns. Every time she works with us here at the JCC in Manhattan she gets rave reviews by all. She is thorough, prepared, thoughtful, focused, caring and an overall wonderful person.”

– Ilana Ruskay-Kidd, Written as Senior Director of Family Life, JCC in Manhattan

“Francine Fabricant’s career counseling workshops have been a novel and valuable addition to the menu of social service programs offered by the Sid Jacobson JCC. For those in our community who are unemployed or underemployed — especially in a difficult economy — regaining positive feelings of self-worth can be quite a challenge. The workshops have offered practical skills as well as psychological support to these career-seekers and have been instrumental in helping many of them to acquire gainful employment and renewed self-esteem.”

– Susan Gold, MPH Director, Adult Services & Community Partnerships, Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center

“Francine Fabricant is an exceptional Career Counselor, and has done wonderful work with several of my psychotherapy clients. First, she conducted an evaluation of their work history, and their goals for the future. Then she reviewed their test results with them in a compassionate manner. Francine then worked with these clients to develop appropriate, achievable career goals. Her final step in this process was to offer my clients the tools and the means to accomplish their own goals. Her work has proven highly effective, and useful to my clients. I highly recommend Francine’s work as a Career Counselor.”
