"...Thanks for all your help. While I am now far from a computer wizard, your programs helped me find a job in just 21 days after I contacted Dr.Korman by phone. I never could afford a computer, as it was a luxury item-feeding my family took all my money, so I did not have skills to search for a job. More than anything, he gave me hope and belief in myself as I had worked in the oil patch for years. Their program, starting with Job Scout, mentoring and resume review works. No one asked me to write this by the way. I just had no other way of repaying OK." Kaliff M January2016
"...OK STANDS FOR KICKSTART, AND THAT IS WHAT THEY DO-GET YOUR JOB HUNTING REVVED UP AND GOING. FINDING A JOB W/O SKILLS IN COMPUTER USE IS IMPOSSIBLE. DR. KORMAN IS AN AMAZING GUY. HE EVEN WAS ILL, CALLED ME BACK IMMEDIATELY AFTER MY FIRST CALL, AND PROBABLY 15 INTERACTIONS MORE I HAD THE TOOLS TO GET ME GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. I GOT A JOB THROUGH HIS EFFORTS NOT MINE FOR SURE. BLESS YOU SIR AND ALL THOSE WHO YOU HELP. LIFE IS TOUGH. MOST PEOPLE LIKE HIM DO NOT CARE. HE DOES. OK HAS A GREAT LEADER. WILLIAM"
"...THESE GUYS ARE WELL ORGANIZED. THEIR SERVICES ARE FREE. I GOT ONE JOB OFFER SO FAR, BUT DR. KORMAN TOLD ME NOT TO ACCEPT IT AS I WAS NOT YET READY TO HONE MY SKILLS. HE WAS RIGHT AS 2 WEEKS LATER THEY WENT OUT OF BUSINESS AND I WOULD HAVE MOVED MY FAMILY TO EDMONTON. NOW I AM COMPUTER LITERATE AND NOT SETTLING FOR JUST A PART TIME JOB AS HE (DR. kORMAN) TAUGHT ME SELF ESTEEM AND THAT WORK SHOULD BE MORE THAN A PAYCHECK. APPRECIATE ALL OKS HELP AND A SPECIAL CUDO TO THE MAN-DR H KORMAN" JAMIE S APRIL 2016
"...Ok is not just OK-this is the real deal, a free charity non-profit who go out of their way to help people like me. Our government cannot make or find us unemployed jobs-those of us laid off have to find our own jobs. It is a hard deal when you get laid off. Your family is left out in the cold, and you feel like a failure even though it had nothing to do with you. No one cares! You’re on your own. Many turn to religion, booze or worse. My salvation was the CEO of this wonderful organization. Dr. Korman for me was more than a guide to a job. He inspired me to stick in there, learn digital skills and work hard. He promised that I would get an interview and I did. In fact 2 months to the day I started with OK I landed a part time job with a future to full time." Tommy R Dec 14/2015
"...My name is Judy---) and I was a personal assistant to an executive in the oil patch. I had been in that position for 17 years. To my shock I was laid off as my salary was to be cut in half, so I quit. I frankly have all the skills that OK teaches, however I did need to reach out to them as I had no other place to go. You see I had spiritually given up due to my circumstances, having just bought a small condo and many commitments based upon my annual salary. I phoned a Dr. Korman after I found them online, and he indicated that officially he could not assist as the mission statement of Operation Kickstart society was for those needing basic digital skills or access to electronic devices. Needless to say I was disappointed. Now what? But my goodness this man said he would help me "off the record" and by God he did. What a sweet man! He actually mentored me and changed my perspective from feeling like a victim to being a champion. (Sorry to go no here so long-cut out any part of this, you think inappropriate.) Due to his efforts and enormous amount of time he spent with me, I found a position with a group where I also could impact other lives. The word "thanks" is hardly enough...so I do my work now helping others in need-and that is the very best thanks I can give to him. GREAT ORGANIZATION-GREAT MAN-GREAT WORK!" Judy K 2015
"...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++++++++++++++++ great resource to those who do not own a computer. Nothing in life is free....this service is. Great people, see if they can help you." Violet P January 2015
"...Both my wife a shipper at a plant and myself a truck driver got laid off at the same time. We have 2 children a mortgage and loads of debt. I did not know how to turn on a computer even my wife did but we had an old one that really did not work. A friend suggested I call OK, and Dr. Korman himself the CEO answered the phone. He invited us into their office on 3rd street on a Saturday, as he was booked solid, and would come in for us. We were blown away by him, the program, his interest in helping us and his message. All for FREE! He reviewed both our resumes on the spot, suggested changes and wrote out by hand 2 cover letters. We were delighted to have met him. He contacted us by phone a week later, made some suggestions and redid my resume again by phone. Long story short I got a job 9 days later after he told me what to say at my interview. I am not an educated man, a blue collar worker but learned to listen and trust this stranger and got a job because of him. I tried to pay him from my first pay check and he said..."put that money into a computer". Wonderful man and super organization." Mr. & Mrs. Michael S 2015
