Dedicated to the ideal that learning will not be limited by geography or circumstance, the College provides residents with affordable access to a comprehensive array of career, transfer and lifelong learning opportunities of the highest quality.

Disability Navigator Program may provide information and training to businesses to promote the hiring of people with disabilities and share knowledge as it relates to applicable accommodations in the workplace. The Disability Navigator may provide information on state of the art rehabilitation technology and local or regional resources.


Connect with Job Seekers on the Internet - Recruitment through your American Job Center is quick and easy with no charge to the employer or job seeker. Automation allows your openings to reach candidates conducting their own job search.

Maryland Workforce Exchange is Maryland's source for information and services for job seekers and employers. Post openings and search resumes at no cost to you. Entering postings in the Maryland Workforce Exchange will also post to America's Job Exchange and Job Central.

Your American Job Center has dedicated veteran staff working exclusively with veterans to help reduce your training and recruiting costs. Services include: hiring assistance to federal contractors, information concerning Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Project (Grant Information) and other information pertaining to veterans hiring.

Connect with Incentive Programs - Money saving incentives on wages and taxes can be obtained through special programs. Federal and State Tax Credits reduce an employer's cost of doing business and require little paperwork. The success and growth of these credits for private-sector employers depend on a strong public-and private-sector partnership.

If you are receiving Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) incentives, your American Job Center can assist in recruiting low to moderate income applicants. The Department of Commerce can also assist your business with additional financing programs.

Connect with Workforce Data - As part of the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation, your American Job Center can put you in touch with DLLR's Office of Workforce Information and Performance office for free information concerning labor trends and market conditions within the state.
