Testimonial

"Frederick County Workforce Services provided valuable training and seminars to prepare for a new role. My Career Specialist also always treated me with dignity and respect, which was so appreciated. She also gave me hope and encouragement during my career transition process. In this economy the unemployed are often shunned and discounted, so working with someone that found value in me and believed in me helped me maintain my confidence and a positive outlook."
