SEC 14 - Elizabeth Isele Legacy Awards Speech

This year, Employment For Seniors is celebrating 45 years in central Ohio assisting mature job seekers. Also our annual fundraiser, The Legacy Awards Program, was in May at Fawcett Center, on the campus of The Ohio State University. This is our opportunity to not only thank the community and all of our supporters but to let everyone in central Ohio know about the wonderful people who are seriously supporting mature job seekers and seniors in our community.

This year, the Julian Marcus Lifetime Achievement award winner is Elizabeth Isele, CEO and Founder of the Global Institute For Experienced Entrepreneurship.

We are working in a multi-generational workforce and that is what Elizabeth highlighted in her acceptance speech. Everyone is working with four, even five generations and we're doing it together. There are problems in multi-generational workforces. We have technology differences; conflicting attitudes among younger and older workers regarding career goals; and there are so many misassumptions between the generations. Elizabeth has keys and solutions for all of us.

SEC 12 - EFS Services to Employers

Local employers around Central Oho have found a highly skilled workforce by posting their positions, free of charge, on the Employment For Seniors JobMatch system.  With assistance from the EFS staff, employers are guided through job postings and initial applicant screening. 

Executive Direcor Carol Ventresca talks with Barb Stoltz. Employer Outreach Program Coordinator with EFS about the reasons hundreds of employers work with EFS every year to find qualified candidates for positions they need to fill.

  • Our goal is to help employers – all sizes, small/medium/large – who are in need of great job applicants.  We particularly strive to assist those smaller employers who do not have full recruiting offices, and those in need of technical help on the recruiting/hiring process.
  • We provide free job postings for employers – no limits on number posted.  We posted 1,300 jobs in 2016 from approximately 300 employers, with 600+ in our database.

If you are a local employer in the Central Ohio area and have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Employment For Seniors at 614.863.1219.

SEC 9 - National Volunteer Week

April 23rd through the 29th is National Volunteer Week. We thought this would be a great opportunity to explain the many ways a volunteer experience can help in your job search.

Often individuals wonder how they have time to volunteer. Just know - - each of us can make a difference in our world; we can help others and make organizations better. The ultimate volunteer opportunity may also teach us something new! You may be in need of updating your computer skills, or maybe it has been a long time since you’ve worked in an office situation. Volunteering at a great nonprofit, could also provide you with chances to learn new computer programs, schedule other volunteers, or provide customer service on the phone or in person.

You may be in need of a chance to update your communications skills, or how to analyze information or possibly how to carry out the plans for a project. Such skills can make you a valuable job applicant. Volunteering provides you with the means to learn those new skills, or update your current skills, in a positive environment with little or no risk. Give some of your time, and create a path to a new job!

You can find many great nonprofit organizations in Central Ohio through HandsOn Central Ohio

Or, for those outside of our community, check out Volunteet Match

Employment For Seniors has an incredible team of volunteers, including our Job Counselors, our network administrator, and others assisting in our office. Several of our volunteers have important messages just for you.
