Recent local job listings

Looking for work? Looking for a better job?
By Will Collette

Image result for Looking for work?There are a number of interesting job openings that have appeared in the past couple of week.

Since not everyone in Charlestown is a well-to-do retiree, some of these might be of interest if you are out of work or looking for a better job than the one you have.

Many of these jobs are drawn from RI Community Jobs, a great on-line service provided by Brown University’s Swearer Center for Public Service

You can sign up to receive a daily e-mail with all the latest listings for the entire state plus nearby parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut.
