Continuing Journey:

I retired from the KSRTC with a pension of Rs 2,000; this amount was not enough to bear all my expenses. It was then that a friend told me about NEF and their Jobs60+ project. I registered at the KRM office and within a week, I was called for an interview. Thanks to the team there, I am now working at SBI life and I have a reasonable income to support me and my family. I would like to thank NEF and Jobs60+ that have made my second innings possible.

A Place To Call Home:

My wife and I had moved to an old age home in Basvangudi after our expenses piled up, and we could not afford to continue living on our own. I got to know about NEF’s Jobs60+ programme, and registered with them. They created a senior citizen ID for me, and soon, I landed a job in a small-scale industry setup. The income, though, was not enough, so I discussed my concerns with Amar at the centre. He heard me patiently, and promised he would do what he could. Within a fortnight, my wife and I got interview calls from Vasavi Educational Trust. We were overwhelmed when we both landed jobs as wardens – our jobs allow us a basic salary, accommodation, and three meals a day. I wish to thank Amar for all his efforts and kindness. My best wishes to the team, always.

A New Innings:

I was job-hunting when I got to know about NEF through a friend. When I visited the centre to register, the staff was courteous and patient enough to address my concerns. Within a month, I was placed with a private organization that pays me Rs 10,000 a month – an amount that is really difficult to earn at my age. I thank the team Jobs60+ for helping seniors like me score jobs post-retirement, so we can lead a more dignified life.

A Wedding For A Daughter:

I was desperately looking for a job since I had to get my daughter married, and I had no means of income. One day, I read in the news about NEF’s job fair at Palace Grounds. Immediately, I called the listed numbers and registered with Jobs 60+. While the job fair did not work out for me, the staff promised to retain my resume and help me with future openings. As promised, they called me about three weeks later about an opportunity at CMR University - a very reputed institute. I cleared the interview, and I am now working as a warden at the girls’ hostel with a monthly salary of Rs 18,000. I have no words to express my gratitude towards the team; all I can say is a big thank you. My daughter’s wedding can now happen!

A New Learning Curve:

I was a retired accounts professional looking for a job to cover my expenses without having to depend on my children. I believe I am fit and healthy, and I can easily work for another 10 years. A neighbour told me about the Jobs60+ placement programme that is free for senior citizens. After speaking to the team on the phone, I was convinced of the idea, and I registered with them. I got called for an interview within a week; while my potential employer was impressed with my accounts background, he needed me to be able to work with Tally. The team at Jobs60+ spoke to him and requested him to put the position hold. On their insistence, I took Tally.ERP9 training at the KR Market centre. After a month, I was placed at the same organization with a substantial offer. I am very grateful to the team at NEF for all their help.
