Review for Employment & Community Options, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It was greatly appreciated that I had a chance to be a participant in Employment & Community Options (ECO) under Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)in San Diego. Being 50+ job seeker, there was a barrier in employ-ment considering the present economy hence, ECO with the help of all staffs of the tremen- dous organization meet the needs of seniors like me by conducting workshops such as resume development, interviewing strategies, searching labor market and basic computer skills. I was placed on intership with a host site (Mercy Clinic) for a job experience. This will give me a current and local work refe-rence that can validate my work habits and skills. Without experience even with school certificates cannot help me to be employed as med. asst. The clinic is so happy being me as volunteer to them. ECO offers assistance in finding job leads considering a stipend that was regularly given to me every 15 days. A really great help! I am looking forward to continue this tremendous assistance of ECO/SCSEP to my fellow seniors to resolve and overcome problems in finding employment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the good result of helping seniors of our community not to be dependent from anybody.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite unemployed to join considering the unemployment problems nowadays

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

This organization trusted me as senior that I am a mature worker who would do a job far better than a less experienced person.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

considerate, understanding the present condition of economy and did their best to help seniors like me to get employed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it will be a great help to anybody who needs assistance.

Ways to make it better...

there are more jobs available to be hired

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial capacity to meet the needs of organization therefore I would encourage philantropist and other wealthy people to contribute not only to medical research but also to human needs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Keep your good works and SOMEBODY will reward your later.
