When Jessica started the Career Collaborative workshop in February, she said that she had trouble finding a job with both a workable schedule and an appropriate salary. She is so excited and happy to start working at Tufts Dental School as an Administrative Assistant, where she will receive the salary and schedule that she has been searching for. Jessica says that she is very thankful to everyone at Career Collaborative for helping her become more confident with interviewing by giving her the tools that she needed to excel. She told the current class to be determined and push themselves in order to get their target job. We are so happy for you, Jessica!
