Workforce Testimonial Quote Submitted By:
Columbia Workforce Center

Meet Felecia

The Maryland [American Job Center] is an awesome place to come when you are unemployed, under-employed or just looking for a different opportunity.You can make copies/faxes/phone calls and use the computers at no cost to the individual. They have several workshops for training, certifications, etc., that you can sign up for and that help you toward that new opportunity providing you make the effort.The process works only if one stays motivated and positive while searching for that new opportunity. The Maryland [American Job Center] will not get you the job; however, it will assist with training, résumé service, and where to go for additional services or information you may need. The key is to get up each and every day, go there as though you are going to work!

The key is to keep an open mind, be flexible and look at every job as an opportunity to lead to something better. I learned over the years to apply to everything.You never know what you can do until you try it. The worse that can happen is that you don't get it the job.So what? Keep trying because the best that can happen is that you do get the job.You really have nothing to lose. Over the years I have come to look at the Maryland [American Job Center] as my way to get away. I've often come in when I have a job or didn't have a job. The people there are very friendly they go above and beyond work duty to assist you in getting back into the workforce.

They understand the importance of you wanting to get back to work, from the time you walk in (when they greet you at the front door), till the time you leave with their well wishes. You have to have a willingness to do your part. If you go there thinking that they will give you a job or find the job for you, you will be disappointed. The thing to remember is that you are not the only one who has lost a job, been fired, or been out of the workforce for a while. There are a lot of opportunities out there and the best part is that you don't have to worry about not having a computer, or need a phone or pay for making copies like the library does. I thank God for such a place and thank them for their support over the years. in keeping me motivated and their kindness always.It is a place where you can research, reach out, and release amongst good people who understand your frustration and are there to help in any way possible.
