As an employment advisor, I see a lot of people coming to the East Regional Center looking for work. There are some people I have noticed have yet to return. Perhaps they found a job, or maybe they are continuing their job hunt using different resources. The question is, “how many clients have been registered, are now working and we have not heard from them?” Knowing how many people I am actually making a difference for would be nice. It is something I think about from time to time and my only solution is make sure you get a phone number or some other method of contact to keep in touch.
