WAY TO GO, Waga! (pictured at left with her career coach, Carol)
Waga came in to ring the bell last week in honor of graduating from our two-year retention program. After completing the Job-Search Workshop in October 2013, she got a great full-time job with Boston Medical Center, where she is still working today.

Big thanks to Chanelle, Asmayt and Isa, three of our new Career Collaborative Ambassadors! All three Workshop Graduates are working hard at great full-time jobs with Canon, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership, and we thank them for spreading the word on how Career Collaborative helped them and can help others, too.

“Everyone here pushes you to succeed…if I didn’t come in every day, I wouldn’t have gotten this job.”

Congratulations to J’neen, who came in to ring the bell and celebrate her new job as a receptionist and administrative assistant with Iora Health! She completed our October Job-Search Workshop and worked hard at applying and interviewing.

After graduating our two-year job retention program in December 2014, Rosemary continued to work while going to back to school for Computer Information Systems at Boston University.
She received her degree in September and is now starting a new position as a Senior Business Intelligence Analyst with National General Insurance Inc. Wishing you the best, Rosemary! We are so proud of you and happy that you stopped by to share the good news.

Guesh was able to secure a full-time job with benefits at Boston Medical Center after completing our Job-Search Workshop — you could, too!

Job Placements

“I moved here three months ago and my brother told me about the program because he actually came through the program. I said to myself, ‘I don’t need that! I have my resume.’ But when I got here I learned a whole lot, things that I didn’t know and I thought that I knew.”
Julie stopped by with her brother Archie to ring the bell and celebrate her new position as a Clinical Assistant with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Archie worked with us a few months earlier and got a full-time cleaning position at Boston Medical Center. At Career Collaborative, success is a family affair!

Kelee G. had just finished the October Job Search Course when she was offered to join Neighborhood Health Plan as a full-time Customer Service Professional. The position is already proving to be a perfect fit for her skills, schedule and career goals! Congratulations, Kelee!

Kayshanda had been looking for a position as a Medical Assistant since July and began working with us in September. After 4 months of job-searching, Kayshanda was offered a permanent, full-time position as a Medical Assistant in the Department of Neurology at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital starting on November 30th, 2015. Congratulations!
