June 2012 Highlights

New Jobs and Client Updates! William N. is a skilled Patient Care Technician. He began working with Career Collaborative in March. William submitted many applications and it took time to land his first interview. After many interviews it took even more time to get a call back. Finally, William received offers from two commendable hospitals. As of June 25th, William is a Patient Care Technician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
