Sometimes It Pays To Be Old
I should know, I'm "semi-old", I'm the Puffman. The Experience Works Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is currently accepting applications. According to Mardi Milligan, the local Employment & Training Coordinator for Experience Works, "In this difficult economy, many older Montanans are finding it necessary to find work.". Unfortunately, according to Milligan, "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". SCSEP is a stepping stone for people DESPERATE for work & immediate assistance & wages will be provided for those who qualify. Experience Works SCSEP is available at no cost to people who meet eligibility criteria.
