Massasoit Community College is helping local residents get back to work by providing under skilled and unemployed adults the credentials they need now to secure jobs with a family-sustaining wage.

How are we doing that?

By working with local industry leaders and Career Works, Quincy Career Center, and the Plymouth Career Center, Massasoit Community College has identified the hiring needs of local employers and as a result, has designed innovative, accelerated programs specifically for those students that need skills and credentials NOW in order to enter the workforce.

To help you determine what career pathway best meets your needs, Paula Fontes, College & Career Navigator at Massasoit Community College, is ready to help you as you begin your path to a community college certificate or degree. Paula is also on site at Career Works, Quincy Career Center, and the Plymouth Career Center.
