Welcome to the Career Center Network
The Career Center Network is Baltimore City’s primary deliverer of workforce development services to job seekers and businesses. The primary goal of the Career Center Network is to provide access to resources, which prepare the local workforce to meet the changing needs of local businesses. As such, the Career Center Network ensures that city residents have easy access to a variety of employment, training, education and workforce development resources available within the region. This is accomplished using a “customer driven” approach to provide services and activities, which enhance the career development process for job seekers and bridges the gap between the needs and demands of businesses.
One-Stop Employment and Training Services
Job seekers and employers turn to the One-Stop Career Center Network for assistance in finding and listing job openings. An integral part of the "Employ Baltimore – Ready to Work for You” strategy is the Career Center Network, which brings together a variety of resources to provide comprehensive workforce development services that benefit the entire metropolitan region. Job seekers are provided opportunities to become “job ready” as defined by the 21st-Century Job Readiness Standards. These standards, developed with business input through the Baltimore Workforce Investment Board (BWIB), creates a common language and precise description for employers and job seekers of the knowledge and combination of skills required for workplace success.
