Boston Career Centers are the primary employment services provider for adults in the city. They are also an entry point into skills training programs and a resource for those looking for training. Boston has two career centers - MassHire Boston Career Center (formerly Boston Career Link) and MassHire Downtown Boston Career Center (formerly JVS CareerSolution) – each of which provide information on job openings and workshops on job search strategies, writing a resume and cover letter, and how to conduct a successful job interview.
Career center staff provide specialized assistance and support for individuals who find it exceptionally difficult to find a job. Staff also work with businesses to assist them in finding qualified and skilled individuals for their workforce. The career centers sponsor job fairs, on-site recruitment, and targeted outreach activities for business customers.

Recognizing that sometimes it takes help from more than one organization for a job seeker to succeed, partners are aligning services across agencies – and getting credit for collaboration. This “shared customer” approach makes the resources of workforce and human service partners available through the career centers. To support this new service delivery model, each partner agency contributes to career center operational and infrastructure costs. Partners provide resources through cross training and staff co-location.
Boston has a team of leaders representing WIOA partner agencies locally. Together, they support the full range of individuals eligible for workforce development services – unemployment insurance claimants, low-income adults, individuals with disabilities, veterans, older workers, re-entry populations, and youth with barriers to employment. Through a Memorandum of Understanding, the partners have articulated a coordinated vision for the Boston system and a process for designing service delivery through the career centers.
