Potential Health Care Training and Jobs with First Source

First Source staff – in partnership with The City of Somerville and the Somerville Center for Adult Learning Experiences (SCALE) – helped recruit candidates for a Partners in Career and Workforce Development Program (PCWD) information session earlier this month. SCALE hosted the event at its Somerville offices, and Roxbury-based Project Hope led the session. Two-thirds of the people attending were First Source clients, two of whom passed assessments and were interviewed. First Source is actively recruiting still more candidates for the next PCWD cycle, which begins in September. 

The PCWD program provides eight-weeks of intensive office administrative training, designed for individuals interested in entry-level employment within one of the Partners HealthCare member institutions. The eight-week program includes: 

  • An introduction to the health care environment
  • Medical terminology training
  • Resume preparation
  • Training on interviewing skills and mock interview days
  • Customer service skill development
  • Office computer skills training
  • An internship within a Partners HealthCare member institution
  • Post-graduation job placement assistance 

Project Hope will hold another information session, on Friday, August 5, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. at their office located on 550 Dudley Street, Roxbury, Mass. Late arrivals will not be admitted. Applications close on August 7.  Call 617.442.1880 to register.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
