SCSEP offers employment assistance to Cape Girardeau Co. older workers | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Experience Works Senior Community Service Employment Program is currently accepting applications.
Program applicants must be age 55 or older, unemployed, live in Cape Girardeau County and have incomes of $13,964 per year or less for a family of one ($18,913 for a family of two).
There are currently several openings for qualified candidates.
"In this difficult economy, many older Missourians are finding it necessary to find work," says Bob Mott, local employment and training coordinator for Experience Works. "Unfortunately, finding a job can be especially difficult for older workers who have not looked for employment for some time or for those who have been unsuccessful in their job hunt. Our program is a stepping stone for people desperate for work. We can provide immediate assistance and wages for those who qualify for the SCSEP."
Experience Works SCSEP is available at no cost to people who meet eligibility criteria.
The program provides community service training as a springboard to permanent jobs with local employers.
