Hiring process

Hiring process

All school year positions are "direct selection." This means organizations pick who they would like to hire.

To be selected for a school-year job, you need to reach out to organizations that you would like to work for. This way, they know you are interested and can invite you to interview.

If an employer picks you after registering, then your next step is to onboard. Onboarding is the process of filling out important hiring information online.

Documents

Here is a list of documents that you will need for onboarding:

Go to our office

You will need to bring all of your documents to our department at:

1483 Tremont Street
Roxbury, MA 02120

This step is called processing because we process your important information.

We need original documents

You must bring in originals of all documents used for onboarding, including:

After processing, you must wait until you hear from your employer before you start working. Do not start working before your employer says it is OK.

You are not hired until your organization contacts you. Do not start working before the organization you are working at tells you to.

The school-year jobs program begins on November 26. If your organization says you are OK to start, you may begin working. You can work up to 10 hours per week. Congratulations!
