Update!

Important information concerning Covid-19
Stimulus Money and Potential Scams


Dear Friends, Clients, Volunteers and Supporters,

The staff and board of directors have decided to temporarily close the EFS office until April 6th.  Given the immediate need to practice social distancing, we will be able to offer virtual assistance.

For our employers- we are able to post your job openings and facilitate phone interviews.  Please contact Barb (jobs@employseniors.org) so she can help with innovative ways to target the staffing you require.

For our clients- if you request more information on a job posting – you can send a request or leave a phone message and Vanessa will get back to you

We are ready to help you practice a phone interview- we can arrange a phone conference with one of our career counselors. Take advantage of this time to perfect your skills!

In addition, here are few suggestions to get you ready:
*Make a list of your transferable skills and strengths.
*Create a list of responses to interview questions by using the STAR method:
When an employer asks “describe a time” or “share an example” question be ready with a response that-
S- (situation) describes the event or the situation
T- (task) explains the task you had to complete
A- (action) describes the specific actions you took to complete the task
R- (result) close with the result of your effort
Type out a few examples and if you would like to run them by a career counselor- call the office and we will get back in touch.
*Refresh your resume. A career counselor can give it a review.
*Organize your closet and prepare several interview outfits.
*Identify your employment goals- are your seeking a new field to explore? Need income to supplement retirement? Lost a job and looking for the next step?  A career counselor can help you establish SMART (specific, measureable, attainable, realistic and timely) goals and create an action plan.

Most importantly, this is the time to be kind and gentle to yourself.  Take a moment during the day, to pause, identify one thing that brings you joy, engage in a simple act of kindness, reach out to friends, neighbors and loved ones with a short phone call, a text or a wave from a distance. “These are times of a global challenge and it can bring out the best in our humanity”, states Richard Davidson, Director of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin.

All of us at Employment For Seniors extend our services to all of you in this unprecedented time- we are for here for you today and ready when our community moves forward once again.

We send our heartfelt wishes for your health, safety and well-being.

The EFS staff and board of directors
