Description

Christmas in the City's 2019 Job Fair will feature 30+ companies from Boston and the Greater Boston Area.

We will have a "welcome room" where job seekers can practice their handshakes and introductions on our volunteers before greeting employers. (Only if wanted, of course!)

Additional information:

  • Please come prepared with multiple copies of your resume
  • The dress code is business casual; however, we recommend you wear a suit if you have one
  • CORI-friendly employers will be in attendance


And GOOD LUCK! We are excited to have you join us!


Please note: you do not need to print out your ticket to enter the event.


EMPLOYERS can sign up to participate here


Some of the employers attending last year's job fair (more will be added shortly):


Services (who do not hire, but who provide information about helpful resources) include:

  • The City of Boston Jobs Bank connects Boston residents with City of Boston contractors. They work with unions, community groups, and Boston Building Trades to find job openings. The Jobs Bank also shows openings for apprenticeships and training programs
  • The MassHire Boston Career Center is a state-of-the-art resource library that includes online job listings and labor market information, career and occupational assessment and counseling, job referrals, workshops, special programs, informational sessions on career and professional development and job hunting, education and training programs, and individual training account assistance
  • Strive Boston envisions a world where everyone has the opportunity to achieve economic self-sufficiency, dignity, and a promising future. STRIVE Boston helps chronically unemployed men and women realize their potential to find and keep jobs that promise sustainable livelihoods and personal growth
  • Youth Options Unlimited Boston is a workforce development organization that works with young people, ages 16-24, who are court-involved or gang-affiliated, reentering the community from incarceration, or seeking a refuge from poverty or violence. Their mission is to empower and motivate young people to gain the educational, employment, and career advancement necessary to be successful in the workforce, in the community, and in their lives.

Could your resume and cover letter use some work? Consider getting in touch with a MassHire Career Center. According to Mass.gov, "Job seekers can get a variety of helpful services [from a Career Center] including: working with experienced career counselors, attending workshops and short-term training, developing a resume, writing cover letters, and more." Find the nearest Career Center here.
