October 2017 Job-Search Course


  • Career Collaborative 77 Summer Street Boston, MA, 02111 United States

All clients participate in a highly interactive four-week job-search/job-readiness course. They learn basic job-search skills and about workplace culture while developing relationships with each other and the Career Collaborative staff. Among the topics we focus on are:

• Setting specific, challenging, and reachable goals

• Developing networking skills

• Understanding employer expectations

As part of the course, each client does 18 practice interviews with staff and volunteers so they are well-prepared when they interview for real jobs. Our volunteers, professionals from area businesses, provide clients with real-world experience and immediate, individual feedback that helps them hone their interview skills and stories.
