Assist job seekers in securing gainful employment with a career as an employment specialist at MassHire Berkshire Career Center, which has immediate need for new hires who are looking to make a positive impact on others' lives and promote self-sufficiency, progression and growth.

This is a full-time, 35 hours per week, temporarily remote position that works 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Once the office reopens to the public, you will transition to working on site. Until then, however, all Career Center services are being delivered virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

By using your skills to help others, you will be doing fulfilling, meaningful, rewarding work that will help job seekers find work and meet occupational and training goals.
