Providing Workforce Resources

WorkSource Montgomery is the non-profit organization that operates the County’s American Job Centers, which provide a full range of assistance to job seekers. The Council is responsible for providing oversight of the organization and recently advocated for changes to the operational structure of WorkSource Montgomery to remove third-party contractors, increasing its accountability to residents.

The County’s most comprehensive job center is in Wheaton and two satellite sites are in Germantown and in the Clarksburg Correctional Facility. In the year ahead, the centers will be increasing the number of events, industry sessions and candidate referrals for residents seeking employment.

Here are a few of the services County residents will find when visiting the County’s American Job Center :

  • Resource rooms with phones, free internet and resume writing tools.
  • Employment plan development and job training services
  • Job search assistance, career counseling and practice interviews
  • Skills testing, labor market and employer information
  • Employment workshops, hiring events and referrals to community resources
  • Access to CareerOneStop's Worker Reemployment website for laid-off workers
  • Access to the state’s job bank, Maryland Workforce Exchange and unemployment insurance information
  • Accessibility and special accommodations for people with disabilities
