As national operations manager at Epiq, Bill Botting has 23 direct reports. As of this writing, seven of them are graduates of Career Collaborative’s career development-job placement program.  

Last year, an eighth alum worked for Botting for two months before resigning when his wife took a job in Washington, D.C. Botting was so impressed with his work that Epiq—which provides legal support services to corporations, law firms, financial institutions, and government agencies—arranged for him to be promoted to an IT position at one of the company’s D.C. sites.

It’s a corporate battle of the bands featuring Bluebird Bio’s JC and the Breakers; Bullhorn, Inc.’s Stampede; Monster’s The Spicolis; and Pega's The Layer Cakes.

Reaching out to young adults

Reaching out to young adults

The most recent numbers from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the overall rate of unemployment is 3.9 percent but for young people aged 20-24 it’s 6.9 percent. Here in Massachusetts, we do much better, with an overall rate of 3.4 percent unemployment versus 3.7 percent for those age 20-24.

 That’s due, in part, to the many programs in Massachusetts for young adults in need of job placement and career development. Here are Career Collaborative, we’ve been honing our program for a special subset of young adults looking for employment—those without college degrees.

Marsha Shaw recently landed a job as an employer and payroll reporting analyst with the Massachusetts State Retirement Board. Her responsibilities include processing pension plan enrollments for new state employees and assisting retired employees with enquiries about their pension benefits.

It’s a career move Marsha had long sought but that always seemed just out of reach—until she found Career Collaborative.
