Working at Central Coast Care
Here is What Our Employees Have to Say
"I really enjoyed my time at Central Coast Care Services. It is very apparent that the owners of the program care for both the clients and their employees. The employers were very understanding of my schedule and boundaries as a young female student. As an employee, they made me feel like I was valued and that my voice and opinions were important. The employers did a great job of matching you with clients that fit your schedule and personality the best, making the shift even more enjoyable. Additionally, there was constant open communication between me, the employers, and other employees to ensure the best care for each client. I am fortunate to have had this experience in college. This job reaffirmed my desire to pursue a career in the healthcare field, and I would highly recommend applying if you also have aspirations in the healthcare field. I built first-hand relationships with each client and understand how different care techniques apply to different individuals. While there are clear expectations of this job, you are the only staff on shift which teaches a lot of independence and how to take initiative." - Marissa
My time working at CCC taught me crucial skills necessary for success in any field of healthcare. These skills included hard and soft skills. Hard skills enabled me to be an effective DSP and ranged from patience, understanding another person’s perspective, and a toolset to support and encourage patients. The soft skills learned while working at CCC, such as interpersonal communication and time management, translate not only to daily life but other extracurricular and academic avenues. This can include communicating with professional organizations or communicating academic research with others. All in all, CCC is an amazing opportunity to build a foundation for your healthcare career and improve your capability as an individual. - Henry
