Employment & Training Resources News


The Employment & Training Resources Career Centers are currently undergoing some important changes. For the next few months we will only be offering limited services and workshops. Please bear with us as we process these changes. Additional information will be available in the coming weeks. We thank you for your understanding and patience as we move forward.

Please note that the Career Centers in Framingham and Norwood will be closed on Fridays during August, to help facilitate these changes.

Sadly we must inform you that after many years of exemplary public service, the ETR Norwood Career Center will be permanently closing on Friday, September 1st. ETR Career Center services will be available only at the Framingham Career Center location beginning on Tuesday, September 5th.
