Overview:
  • Every time a new Governor is elected, the new Governor creates a transition team to help transfer power from the old Governor to the newly elected Governor.

  • On November 2022, soon-to-be former Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey was elected as the new Governor of Massachusetts.

  • As part of the transfer process, the new Governor has to hire many people to fill the jobs that open because of people leaving with the outgoing Governor's administration. 

  • Latinos comprise 12% of Massachusetts but only account for less than 9% of the State's workforce, so La Mega, El Mundo, El Planeta, Amaru, Amplify Latinx, Conexion, and the Greater Boston Latino Network have united together to connect and refer Latinos to job opportunities in the new Healey administration. 

  • This initiative is happening because we need Latino representation in the new Governor's administration. We need our government to reflect and understand the people it serves. 

  • These Latino-led organizations have created an intake form for anyone who wants to apply and work in the new administration. Latinos across Massachusetts are encouraged to go visit www.goamaru.com to learn about the initiative and apply as soon as possible. 

  • Additionally, Amaru is providing professional development webinars such as how to write a resume, how to interview, and salary negotiation to help Latinos have the best opportunity to obtain employment.

How it works:
  • The requirements of the role are that you are proficient in English and can create and submit a resume with your overall work experience. 

  • This isn't like most jobs in that you aren't applying for a role but submitting your resume for jobs that align with your experience and subject matter expertise.

  • We will collect resumes and send them to the Healey transition team. 

  • From there - the Healey transition team will review and reach out to candidates accordingly. 

  • The transition team will work with selected candidates to place them in roles they want and need to fill.

  • Amaru will support anyone who isn't hired by providing group career coaching after the initiative ends.
