Morrisville, PA -- The Morrisville Senior Servicenter’s (MSSC) new job training program will help adults 55+ enter or re-enter the workforce, provide training in computer skills and job search skills, and even apply these skills for those interested in starting a business. In partnership with the Bucks County Community College, classes will be available at the senior center in Morrisville. PA Career Link, Bucks County Area Agency on Aging, and SCSEP (Senior Community Service Employment Program) will provide additional partnership support, including helping seniors with potentially finding new jobs and working with employers looking to hire experienced, mature adults. The pilot program is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and seeks to create a sustainable program that can be developed in counties across the state of Pennsylvania.
Computer skills classes will include computer fundamentals, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Career coaching will include modern techniques for the job searching process, resume writing, networking, LinkedIn, interviewing, and the concept of developing healthy habits that grow confidence and build resilience for mature job seekers in transition. These concepts build on the technical skills to help class participants land the new career they will love. Classes will begin on April 1, 2019 at the Morrisville Senior Servicenter. A range of different topics will be covered in these powerful classes in the center’s new computer lab and multiuse activity room. Classes are free to anyone age 55 and better.
