"Christopher C. came into Carroll County Workforce Development in October 2021. It took Chris time to settle on an employment goal of CDL. Chris began training with Carroll Community College in March 2022 and successfully completed in May 2022. Chris obtained his CDL-A on May 24, 2022. On October 10, 2022, Chris began working for Tevis Energy as a Delivery Driver while obtaining his B Class Hazmat Tanker endorsement. Chris’ new position provided him with a $7.00 per hour increase."

"When my dad passed I had to step up and take care of my family, but I had no idea how to get started. Now I have my GED and am so happy with the job I have. CCWD is also helping me find and take courses to further my education so I can get a better job. I could not have gotten this far without the help I got from CCWD. They have helped me every step of the way.“
"We are very thankful to the Carroll County Workforce Development Youth Program for providing a very professional, technically astute candidate with attention-to-detail to our company for 6 months. We have worked with several database administrators in the past and the candidate provided was so much better than anyone else who did this job. The training this candidate received from Workforce Development was invaluable to our company and well as to his professional growth. We have made this candidate an employee of our company and he has already moved to the next level of sourcing - using Boolean logic, researching on the web, learning about technology companies, etc.- to help us find qualified candidates."
"My period of unemployment rapidly came to a successful close, and I owe it all to a group of government employees — the staff at the Carroll County Business & Employment Resource Center (BERC). I can say, without a doubt, that I would not have received the employment offer I received had it not been for them."
What I liked best about working with the BERC was that the employment counselor really helped me from start to finish throughout the job campaign - from creating a resume to assisting me prepare for interviews. With BERCs help, I was employed less than two months after being laid-off!
As a whole, the staff at BERC, is courteous, competent and encouraging while providing meaningful career guidance and support.
I wish I had the opportunity to begin 5 Steps to Rapid Employment sooner in my career. I was one of the fortunate during my job campaign to land a job with a two week period that fit my skills and knowledge. I would recommend this course for all individuals.
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement; all of the workshops I attended were so informative and extremely helpful.
BERC has provided ongoing recruitment assistance and hosted a two day job fair for FR Conversions to assist with our relocation to Westminster. We found many qualified candidates through BERC and are continuing to hire as we ramp up our operations to meet growing demands.
About BERC job fairs: Very well organized and definitely worth doing again. Thank you!
About BERC job fairs: The positions we are hiring for are specific and require licensure or certification. My best expectation for a general job fair is to find 1-2 qualified applicants that I would like to interview. I met today with 12 very qualified candidates and have high hopes of hiring at least three of them. THANK YOU!!
