Special from Mid-Cumberland
Peggy Cook is a Career Advisor for Mid-Cumberland in the Dresden American Job Center. Peggy is one of the many employees whom actually used the America Job Center Services and would like to to share her experience.
My name is Peggy Cook. In 2013 I lost my job of 28 years due to my company closing. I was devastated. I was 80 years old but not ready to retire. I received unemployment for six months while searching for a job. At this age employment seemed impossible. Someone told me to go to the American Job Center in Dresden. I went to the center and was told about the Senior Community Service Employment Program. In June 2014, I started working atthe Dresden Center through the SCSEP as a receptionist.
