years ago,Jacques retired from the career counseling business and his
company was sold to a national temp agency. This agency integrated his
services into their Personnel Services Division. Jacques now lives

In 2010, Jacques invited a couple
of former colleagues to join him on a project to spread the knowledge
of career building and job finding. The aim is to make it available for
free so everybody can apply it.
Jacques formed a volunteer group
of career counseling and outplacement specialists: The Personal
Strength Group (PSG). At PSG we are committed to developing and
updating the site and its content.
Sometimes we recommend expert
work from others under the condition that they offer it for a very
reasonable price. Maintaining low overhead costs allows us to offer the
content on this site for free. Be sure to check it out.
