Workforce Testimonial Quote Submitted By:
Baltimore Works One-Stop Career Center

Warren is now employeed at two jobs!

I am writing to inform you about the positive experience I had at the Baltimore Career Center at Eutaw. I would like to thank the staff for being so helpful and I appreciate all the resources that were available. There is one particular staff member I would like to mention- Lakesha, the Early Intervention Facilitator. Thanks to her I now have two jobs.
To begin, I spent three (3) weeks at the Baltimore Career Center at Eutaw and in that time I really enjoyed myself. I appreciate how I was able to have a computer to myself and be able to use as much time as I needed. This gave me the ability to work at my own pace while I explored jobs and completed applications. The Maryland Workforce Exchange Virtual One Stop (MWE-VOS) website was very resourceful and easy to understand. Not only did I find numerous jobs that I was interested in, but I found a free learning program on your site called Allison. I was intrigued by Allison because it allowed the opportunity for me to learn about different subjects for free. For example, they offered courses for job skills, risk management, business, psychology, and statistics.
I was first introduced to Ms. Dennis when I participated in her Early Intervention class. I was impressed with her professionalism, knowledge, teaching skills, and kindness. I learned a lot of things that I did not know before. She was very resourceful teaching us various websites we could use for our resumes and cover letters. Not only did she teach us, but she also was able to connect with us by sharing her own unemployment experience. Her encouragement and success with overcoming difficult times motivated me to work hard and find a job.
I also participated in Ms. Dennis’s Resume Seminar. In the seminar I learned different techniques to build my resume in order to make it look professional and stand out. Ms. Dennis helped me create a cover letter, prepare for a job interviews, and coached me on what to say and what not to say in an interview. Another key thing she worked with me on is answering that nerve-wreaking question employers love to ask, “Tell me about yourself?” Ms. Dennis worked with me and we developed a statement that I would say each time I was asked this question.
In conclusion, utilizing the skills and resources I learned from the Baltimore Career Center at Eutaw and Ms. Dennis, enabled me to become employed by BWI working at one of the retail stores. I was also hired by S.A.F.E management to do security at M&T Bank Stadium. It brings me great joy to have these jobs and I was only unemployed for two months. I just want to say you have an outstanding staff and a clean working environment. I truly believe that if it wasn’t for all the help and guidance Ms. Dennis gave me I would not have been hired. I am grateful for the time I spent here and will continue to work hard and use what I learned at the Career Center throughout my future. Thank you
