Finding a Job
Summer YouthWorks program 2017, as funded by the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development and administered by Commonwealth Corporation statewide, and the REB for the Cities of Chicopee, Holyoke, Springfield and Westfield has launched!

If you’re between the ages of 16-24 and you’re already working, chances are very good that someone you know helped you get that job. In Hampden County, our One-Stop Career Centers have Youth Specialists who can help connect you to employers who are hiring.
Please remember that Youth Specialists can not get you a job – you must do that. However, Youth Specialists can help you prepare for employment by helping you to fill out job applications, reading and critiquing your resume and helping you with practice interviews. They can also give you tips on how to spend your time even though you don’t have a job (like volunteering, and participating in an internship). Contact the Youth Specialist nearest you.
