What I like about the company
This is an opportunity to fulfill a very necessary service to senior citizens in need of finding employment. It is a government program, funded by the Department of Labor, and available in most states. A lot of the people who come to us have a very low income and need to supplement their income. Many of them have not completed a very high education, so are at a disadvantage in competeing for jobs. Also many of the women coming to us to find work are from the era when women did not find work outside of the home. They have no background of experience to offer. This program offfers training in all levels of job search. I personally conduct classes in interview skills, , basic computer, and proper personal care. It is also necessary to work with professional people, wo had worked for many years, and because of their company down sizeing, are out of work. I work closely with the human resourse person of companies to arrange meetings and interviews. The experience of being closely involved with these people is giving me a look into the future of all senior citizens and seeing the problems which will arise. It is becoming critical that everyone needs to plan ahead for old age. And so very important that this be included in the training of our younger genertion. I personally get a gret feeling of satisfaction when I have successfully set someone in a job and have elped them start better life.
What I dislike about the company
This program needs to be expanded to every state and more widely publisized.
