What our students are saying!
Jamming for success!
After one of our recent night classes concluded, we asked students for one word to describe how they felt after completing the course: Over and over again, we heard “Elated!”, “Stronger!” and “Equipped!”
But many had much more to say, and we’ve captured it here for our volunteers and supporters:
Opportunity: We're looking for a manager of career coaching
Jam for Jobs was quite a night! We rocked out to the sounds of Bluebird Bio’s JC and the Beakers; Bullhorn, Inc.’s Stampede; Monster’s The Spicolis; and Pega's The Layer Cakes at Hard Rock Café Boston. Over 200 people turned out to raise $50,000 for our career development-job placement programs!
For Epiq, hiring from our pool is win-win
Career Collaborative is growing and has created a new position: Manager of Career Coaching
The Manager of Career Coaching is responsible for the overall operational integrity, and successful outcomes of the Career Collaborative program. Reporting directly to the President/CEO, s/he is responsible for ensuring recruitment goals for class fulfillment and placement goals for participant graduates are met or exceeded. The DOD will assist the President/CEO with developing and achieving strategic goals to advance the financial well-being, and social contribution of the organization.
Introducing our Jam for Jobs line up!
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.
Everyone’s buzzing about Boston Calling, Bonnaroo, Coachella, #Woodstock 50 and the umpteen other music festivals that are taking place all over creation this summer. But if you love live music but aren’t a fan of muddy fields, port-o-potties, and packs of selfie-obsessed Instagram influencers, join us at Jam For Jobs May 1 at Hard Rock Cafe Boston. 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.
