Michael D. began our workshop in April. He has a strong background in Customer Service. His goal coming here was to land a full-time position as opposed to having multiple part-time jobs. He was successful in obtaining a position at Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel as a Guest Services Agent on June 18th. He is thrilled to have his new position in the field he enjoys.

 

 

Maria B. began working full-time as an Environmental Services Aide at Mass General Hospital. She started the position as a part-time employee on April 17th. Due to her hard work and diligence, Maria was offered full-time employment on June 8th.

In an effort to provide security for his family, he set out on a search for a company with more stability. Shortly after completing our job-readiness workshop Tony was offered a position at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center as a Cook. He started on June 4th.
