I signed up on the [Mass] PCA directory. I went to sleep when I was done and within 8 hours I woke up and had 3 people texting me asking me to be their PCA. It was the fastest and best thing ever. It turned my life around.
The [Mass PCA] Directory is very easy to use, ample lists. It was very easy to see all the information on people, their resumes were included.
I searched several times and found the site very easy to use. I posted a job and updated it. Very easy to use. I got notifications by text and email whenever a new worker was added.
I created a job posting [on the Mass PCA Directory] and got a great list of PCA’s with lots of information.
The [Mass PCA] Directory is the first place I go to when I’m looking for a PCA. I hired 5 PCAs from the directory.
[A recent PCA Pre-employment Program participant] just accepted a job as a PCA… She is so happy and thankful for this amazing opportunity.
