An applicant interested in joining the Senior Employment Services of Sourcewise will start by calling (408) 350-3200, option 5. If you receive a voice mail, please leave a message stating that you are interested in job placement assistance. Our Senior Employment specialists will return your call within one business day.
A confidential preliminary interview will be conducted by telephone to determine if you are eligible to become a participant in Senior Employment Services.
General preliminary interview questions consist of the following:
Are you aged 55 or older?
Are you unemployed?
Do you reside in Santa Clara County?
Are you a veteran or the spouse of a veteran?
What is your household income for the last 6 months?
Additional information is requested regarding your mode of transportation, employment history, educational background and interests.
If you meet the preliminary eligibility requirements, a personal interview is scheduled with an intake representative. The applicant will be advised of any necessary documentation to provide at the in-person interview.
Applicants are asked to complete several occupational tests. Our testing process assists in determining skill levels, aptitudes, and abilities for employment.
Once you are enrolled, you are a “SCSEP Participant.”
An Individual Employability Plan is developed for each candidate based on data collected from the interview and test results. If there are any recruitment or enrollment openings, a training plan (on-the-job-training and/or classroom training) will be implemented for the newly enrolled SCSEP participant.
“Your program not just gave me training but lifted me from my depression of not being able to work. I am working full time and earning a wage that has improved my life, thank you - I am indebted to your company.”
My time and OTJ training ... in Gilroy was the best thing I have received. This training experience lead to me being hired in a full-time position, after thinking I could not find a decent job at my age. Thank you!
Thanks for the time and training I received at my host training agency...I am now fully employed and making a nice living wage, I will always be grateful.
I was unemployed for over two years and the SCSEP training program made me so confident and found me a job that I truly enjoy – thanks to your staff.
Thanks for the training and assistance in finding my job that I love...
