Ezra Network

The Ezra Network is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in partnership with JVS SoCal, offering career counseling, job search and placement services through various synagogues in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and the South Bay.

Whether helping people discover or assess their skills or working on a step by step plan to help them secure a job or move up the career ladder, JVS SoCal' Career Services staff is dedicated to helping each individual attain their professional goals.

Working with a career coach, clients learn how to conduct an effective job search and best present themselves to employers, including the use of social media and networking techniques.

Working with synagogues, The Ezra Network is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles in partnership with Jewish Family Services, Bet Tzedek Legal Services and JVS SoCal. The Ezra Network is funded by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.
