Job Placements

Congratulations to Chimica, who got a full-time job as a Patient Experience Representative with Boston Children’s Hospital! She came in to #RingTheBelllast week and shared some wonderful advice with our current workshop class.

“I’ve finally learned to celebrate the small things. They told me all the time, celebrate the small things and stay focused on the job…and now I got the job I want.”

CONGRATULATIONS to Johnson, who came in to #RingTheBell and share this good news with us! He got a full-time job as an Elementary K-5 Paraprofessional with Shore Educational Collaborative.

Bayat, came in to ‪#‎RingTheBell‬ last week and share her success at her new full-time position as a Food Preparer with Gate Gourmet. Bayat had this to share:

“I want to thank everyone at Career Collaborative today. I have found a job at the airport. I want to thank everyone who helped me build my resume – all the workers, including the classmates, were good to me. Everyone was nice and I had fun!”

“If I have one piece of advice for this class, it’s this: don’t give up. Never, ever, ever give up.”

CONGRATULATIONS to Nicole, who came in to ‪#‎RingTheBell‬ and celebrate her new full-time job as an Intensive Care Coordinator with Children’s Services of Roxbury! Nicole worked hard in class, leveraged her experience, and did a great job of staying in touch with us and continuing applications after the workshop ended, leading her to exactly the job she wanted.

A well-deserved CONGRATULATIONS to Michelle, who came in to ‪#‎RingTheBell‬ and celebrate her new full-time position as a Bus Monitor with First Call Transportation!
