What resources would you recommend to someone considering a career change?
The Business and Employment Center offers a free Career Exploration Assessment program at the Center.Â This assessment program helps you identify your aptitudes, career preferences and values.Â It is typically offeredÂ two Wednesday morningsÂ a month from 8:30 am-noon (check the calendar on this site for theÂ exact dates).Â Although there is no fee for this program, pre-registration is required.Â You can sign up by coming into the center or by calling (301) 600-2255.
Every month the Center alsoÂ offersÂ our "Navigating the Career Roadmap" program.Â Â ThisÂ two-hourÂ session with one of our Career Specialists will help you discover numerous resources (including books andÂ Internet sites) that are available to assist you in making the best career choice.Â Â Â Â
If youÂ have access to the Internet (free computer access is available at our center), enrolling in the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWE) systemÂ gives you access to both local and regional jobs.Â The system also provides extensive information forÂ career changes and training opportunities.Â Â I would also recommend visiting the Maryland Workforce Exchange's Career Resource page.Â
Wishing you success in all your endeavors!
