Job Placements

"I just want to let you guys know that are currently here: do not give up. I know how hard things must be...but trust me, you're sitting on a winning lottery ticket. Listen to the staff members - they know what they're doing."

Congratulations to Nickolas, who came in to ‪#‎RingTheBell‬ yesterday and celebrate his new dream job as a Residential Teacher Assistant at the May Institute! He spoke to the class about his journey to change fields and start a career supporting individuals with special needs.


“The opportunity to enter the financial world has always been my dream in the U.S...Keep your mind focused on what you want and believe at the right time, it will definitely come. Take this place as a family, it’s a wonderful family to have. I appreciate every one of you. Even the ones that have left, our interns, they are wonderful people. I don’t have family in the U.S., [but] having Career Collaborative, I think I am satisfied and am very happy.” A huge congratulations to Victor, who came in to ‪#‎RingTheBell‬ yesterday and celebrate his new job as a Risk and Reporting Specialist Associate with State Street Corporation.

"My school suggested to come here because they heard how great it was, and I'm honestly grateful that they sent me. When I came here they treated me so well and taught me so much. It worked out great, because I literally got complimented on how well I presented myself, and that's what really matters. Half the battle is: what can you actually offer the employer?"

Congratulations to Daniel, who came in on Monday to celebrate his 2-year graduation from Career Collaborative. Daniel currently works as a Medical Secretary with Atrius Health and is a new Career Collaborative ambassador!


Congratulations to Genet, who came in to ring the bell last Friday and celebrate her new full-time position as a General Service Associate at Boston Medical Center!


"The employers know this organization is a good organization, and it will help you."

A huge congratulations to Birhanu, who graduated from our Job-Search workshop in December and will start a full-time position as a Functional Specialist Associate with State Street Corporation later this month. He came in to ring the bell yesterday and share strong advice with our new class of participants.



Last Friday, our February 2016 workshop participants completed their final round of practice interviews before their graduation ceremony. Now they're fully prepared for the job search, with some already having secured multiple interviews and even job offers!
