Frederick County Workforce Services (FCWS) soon will be co-located with Frederick Community College’s Monroe Center at 200 Monroe Avenue in Frederick. The new center, which is accessible by TransIT, will be open to the public on Thursday, August 24.
“We’re excited to offer the same great services for businesses and job seekers at a newly renovated and more convenient location,” said County Executive Jan Gardner. “I invite our residents and employers to take advantage of all the opportunities at our new Workforce Services center. In Frederick County, we mean business!”
In addition to Workforce Services, the FCC Adult Education program and other community partners will be housed at the center, including the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation; Frederick County Department of Social Services; the Asian American Center RSVP Program, and the Maryland Division of Rehabilitation Services. Citizens have the opportunity to have convenient access to multiple resources under one roof.
“Our customers can benefit from having a more direct line to the career training programs provided through FCC,” explained Workforce Services Director Michelle Day.
As a county department that operates within the Office of Economic Development, FCWS offers a wide range of services to businesses, job seekers and young adults.
Job seekers that partner with FCWS can learn the latest techniques in job search, have their resume reviewed by a Certified Professional Resume Writer, practice their interviewing skills, enroll in career training and much more – at no cost. Local businesses can take advantage of free recruitment services that provide access to qualified candidates for their open positions. Grant funding is also available to eligible employers for training new and current workers.
Youth programming includes year-round job search support, internship opportunities, and a widely-recognized Summer Jobs Program that provides practical work experience to young adults with barriers to employment.
County residents can take advantage of all these resources and more at the new center beginning on August 24. The center will be open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday.
