Congratulations to participants in our most recent daytime class, who today completed phase one of our intensive three-phase program toward building a career! After 100 hours of classes completed over four weeks, they now have professional résumés and have gone through approximately 20 practice job interviews each with volunteers employed in professional settings in the Greater Boston area! They’ve also taken a financial literacy course that covers budgeting, managing credit and credit scores, and retirement planning.
We celebrated with cake, hugs, and Career Collaborative swag!
The next step for our participants is to find their dream job! They’ll be working one-on-one with our employment counselors to search for jobs online. They’ll be writing targeted cover letters, and preparing for interviews. They’ll also participate in the Career Collaborative Job Club where they meet twice weekly with their peers to share their experiences in looking for a job, track their progress, and motivate each other. We could not be prouder of their hard work, and look forward to seeing what they’ll achieve in the weeks to come!
Our next class begins Monday, October 23. Click here for more information!
