Metro North Career Centers

 

The Metro North Regional Employment Board charters two career centers, both operated by Middlesex Community College, to serve the 20-community Metro North region: Career Source in Cambridge and Chelsea (satellite), and The Career Place in Woburn.

Since their inception, the Metro North career centers have served over 231,600 job seekers, placing an average of close to 10,000 in jobs per year. The current average wage is $25.22. Our centers are currently serving about 1,000 employer customers per year, listing thousands of job postings, and providing a variety of other employer services such as job fairs and on-site recruitment.

The Metro North Career Centers have been recognized for their outstanding performance. In FY'14, the centers had the second highest volume of customer visits (105,623) compared to other regions statewide, the highest number of job placements, the second highest average wage, and the second highest number of individual customers served (21,399). During the last twelve years, the REB has conducted extensive customer satisfaction surveys, with an average of 81% of sampled job seeker customers rating the quality of services as “good” or “excellent.”  Similarly, over 81% of sampled employer customers rated services as "good" or "excellent."
