Last month, Deona Dorsey, ESE Coordinator, reported that the San Diego Metro Region American Job Center, operated by KRA for the San Diego Workforce Partnership, had established an exciting, productive partnership with the Balboa International Group.
Miss Angel Stancer, Business Services Representative, reports, “We are equally excited about our relationship with The Arc of San Diego , which is partnering with KRA/San Diego to provide incredible opportunities, with true career-advancement potential, for our Expanded Subsidized Employment public-assistance customers.”
According to Lance McGill, Arc Talent Acquisition Manager, “We are advocates for providing diversity of work opportunities to enhance individual life and career choices as strong members of the community. We look forward to ESE’s customized recruitment events because they deliver quality candidates who arrive informed about the positions and eager for the opportunity to work with us. The pre-screening and individual assistance that the ESE team provides is incredibly helpful.”
Since January, of 50 referrals, ARC has made job offers to 11 candidates, with six already working as Direct Support Professionals, Job Coaches, and Warehouse Clerks. The balance of the referrals are still undergoing pre-qualification, i.e., background checks and DMV screening, and KRA/San Diego anticipates many more offers to be made.
