Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Message of Thanks to his City

Dear Everett residents:

Let me begin by thanking you and all who are making Everett a great place to live, work, and play. Our community has come together like never before, and now our vision of revitalization is becoming a reality. To date, construction of the Encore Boston Harbor resort is 75% complete and in just a few short months the resort will begin hiring the estimated 4,800 employees needed to run the resort. As Mayor, my number one priority, along with the Everett City Council, was to create these jobs for our residents. Pursuant to our Host Community Agreement, qualified Everett residents who apply for a job will receive a hiring preference.

In order to provide you with the most up to date information on the hiring process, we have convened a panel of workforce development professionals, Encore Boston Harbor Human Resource representatives, and community leaders to provide you with more information, including:

• Timeframe for hiring

• Details on career opportunities

• Frequently asked questions

• How to be a strong candidate

• Additional workshops and trainings you can sign up for

If you are interested in these opportunities or in accessing workforce-training services, please attend an information session on October 18th at 6:30pm at the Connolly Center, located at 90 Chelsea St. If you cannot attend, please look for a recording of the session on ECTV. Also visit the Encore Boston Harbor Career Center located at Everett City Hall. Additionally, you may find the following websites helpful:
