Apply to Cambridge Works, City’s Transitional Jobs Program

Cambridge Works, the City of Cambridge’s transitional jobs program, is recruiting for its 28th program cycle, which will run from September - December 2022. The program, offered by the Department of Human Service Programs’ Office of Workforce Development, serves Cambridge residents between the ages of 18-35 who have difficulty finding full-time jobs due to limited work experience, a gap in their work history, legal challenges, or personal issues.

Cambridge Works prepares participants for full-time employment through:

  • A 3-month, paid temporary job placement at a local organization
  • Professional development classes focusing on resume and cover letting writing, interview preparation, financial literacy, communication skills, and goal setting
  • Support from a case manager
  • Job search support to find full-time employment

To apply to the program, fill out the Cambridge Works online application. Applications will be accepted through August, and the program will begin in early September.
