How do you find a PCA job?
Complete a worker profile on www.MassPCADirectory.org. (your local library or senior center probably has computers you can use). Then you’re ready to review the list of consumer-employers you were matched to or look for PCA jobs on your own. There are training videos at https://www.masspcadirectory.org/Home/TrainingVideos to help you learn how to add your information to the Mass PCA Directory.
If you have questions or problems with the Mass PCA directory, you can call 1-888-MassPCA (627-7722) to get help. Someone will answer Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm (many languages available).
