Employment Opportunities

The Career Center is a valuable resource for your hiring needs. We offer a Job Board where we post part-time positions and have a Student Profile which is filled out by the student and faxed to the business. Businesses may then contact students directly.  Please contact me via email or phone. My direct line is (413) 786-0861 and my email address is lsheehan@agawamed.org. 
 
Students should look below or at the job board located outside of the Career Center for any open positions.  All contact information is posted on each flyer.  See Ms. Sheehan in the Career Center for any additional questions.
