Somerville is thriving hub for businesses both large and small. One way to go after a part-time job is to keep your eyes open for the "hiring" signs posted at various locations, or get in contact directly with the hiring departments of larger organizations like gyms, hotels and stores. Some of the local organizations and websites listed below can help you search for jobs and volunteer opportunities, or find out more about careers you are interested in.
