Additional Employer Resources
For professional individuals, Operation A.B.L.E. offers midternships (paid internships for professionals midway through their careers.) These are available to candidates who do not require training to get back to work. This is a "Win-Win" for employers and mature workers. Employers receive assistance from well-qualified, experienced candidates. And the candidates gain additional experience and receive a new job reference to assistance in their search for permanent employment.
To learn more about midternships for your company, contact:
Senior Community Service Employment Program, SCSEP
For candidates pursuing vocational positions, we offer the SCSEP Program.
As a provider for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), we place qualified workers in subsidized positions at non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations and government agencies.
We match the skills, experience, and needs of participants with your staffing needs and your mission. The employer is required to help the participant learn new skills that can be used when the participant transitions out of the program into an unsubsidized position.
Advantages to Employers
- Part-time staff member for up to 20 hours per week at no cost to you
- Address staffing needs at no cost to you
- Payroll is managed by Operation A.B.L.E.
- You get to evaluate a trained and experienced candidate for future job openings first hand
SCSEP is a U.S. Department of Labor equal opportunity employer/program administered by Operation A.B.L.E. and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs. Please visit us at mass.gov/elders.
