In addition, we provide assistance with job search skills and job readiness, and connect job seekers with training opportunities to make them more marketable to employers.

Talent and Recruitment – We offer a number of tools to assist businesses in attracting, hiring, retaining, and advancing their workforce. Employers can search resumes online or work with a Staffing Analyst. In addition, we offer assistance with assessment, testing, interviews, outplacement assistance, and workforce planning and recruitment.

WIOA Funded Training – The Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) provides a workforce development system to benefit both employers and job seekers by attaining training and recognized post-secondary credentials. Whether it’s on-the-job training through Project Hire, incumbent worker training, customized group training, or individual training, the goal is to provide a better- educated and prepared workforce.

Youth and Career Services – Montgomery County Development Services works closely with county youth aged 14-24 to assist them in developing fundamental life skills for managing their personal growth, interpersonal relationships, and career development. The Summer YouthWorks Program, for example, provides summer employment and training opportunities for over 2,000 high-school aged youth of Montgomery County.

Ready 4 Work – The Ready 4 Work initiative is a grass roots approach to prepare residents to become job-ready. By creating Community Job Development Centers with local community partners, they have extended the reach of the services at The Job Center. Individuals work on resumes and skills in their own community, and then follow up with The Job Center for employment or training.
