Orange County Employer Questionnaire
Orange County Department on Aging (OCDOA) helps Orange County residents 55+ years of age meet their social, mental, physical, financial, and day-to-day practical needs. These include people searching for full- or part-time jobs, wanting to start their own business, or volunteer.
Our Employment Specialist is at the Seymour Center on Mondays and Fridays, and the Passmore Center on Wednesday mornings, meeting with people individually and conducting workshops. Many of these job seekers want to work in Orange County.
Here’s how you can help us. We’re developing a list of Orange County employers who hire people 55+ years of age or older. We would appreciate your taking a few minutes to complete a brief online Employer Questionnaire.
Please know that our knowledge and information might be of interest to you. Should you want or need to hire people for your business, we will refer qualified individuals to you – AT NO COST to you.
