Meet Keith

Workforce Challenge

Mr. Adams had become unemployed in July 2013. He visited the Baltimore County Workforce Development Center where he was assisted with enrollment into the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWE). He was given tips and ideas for his résumé. He learned to tailor his résumé for each job he applied and used the MWE to find appropriate positions.

Workforce Solution

Mr. Adams visited the facility on a steady basis, even when he was not feeling well. Tondi Correll, Job Service Specialist worked with him and said he was full of dedication. Mr. Adams stated that he was ill but had to apply for this job, as he just found out about it and it was the last day the company was accepting applications. On March 5, 2014, Tondi met with him he had a smile from ear to ear. He received notification via email on February 28, 2014, from the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) offering him a position as a Transportation Facilities Maintenance Worker III effective March 19, 2014.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mr. Adams stated that without having the Workforce Development Center at Eastpoint, access to the internet and assistance and being told to “think outside the box” he would not have been able to secure such a good position. So after eight (8) long months of being unemployed and steady use of the Workforce Development Center at Eastpoint, he obtained a career service position with MVA. Now that’s a good ending, and better beginning.
