  1. Lives change at Liberty Center

    Bryan Dunn, Marketing Specialist, Department of Economic & Workforce Development

    If you live in the Randallstown area, you often drive down Liberty Road to go to Home Depot or Walmart, take the kids to the Randallstown Community Center or perhaps have dinner at the new Ruby Tuesday or Colin’s restaurant. One thing you may have missed is the life-changing work happening at Baltimore County’s Liberty Center, a formerly vacant grocery store on Offutt and Liberty Roads.

    The Liberty Center is where over 11,000 people went to change their lives last year, with resources for anyone looking to hone a personal brand and compete in today’s job market.

    Free to the public, Liberty Center focuses on career paths, not merely placing jobs. Liberty Center is where Candy Kriegar learned how to leverage her experience as a small business owner to land an administrative position with Utility Line Corporation.  It’s where Toyota Financial Services found Desitini Daniels, who went to Liberty Center to reboot her career after an employment contract ended.  RG Steel worker Robert Goode got the career counseling he needed to get hired as a welder.

     “We love what’s happening at Liberty.  Connecting job seekers with these amazing employers, that’s what it’s all about,” said Will Anderson, Director of the Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development.

    Since opening in 2011, there has been no shortage of success, just as there is no shortage of opportunity – all it takes is a visit, and a commitment to the future.

    Baltimore County Economic and Workforce Development, the Community College of Baltimore County and Social Services collaborate to deliver services and customized programs that get results. Utilizing the facility’s 2,500 student capacity, CCBC offers courses that train people for marketable jobs, while Workforce Development organizes onsite recruitments to help connect people with businesses that are hiring.

    Liberty Center is one of three free career centers in Baltimore County, conveniently located in Randallstown, Hunt Valley and Eastpoint.   A convenient Mobile Career Center brings job search resources to communities throughout Baltimore County.  Stop in anytime and see how our career centers can change your life. You might just find your next job. And your next career.

    Don’t miss out on CCBC Randallstown’s Community Open House at the Liberty Center.

    Find out more about Career Training and Community Education programs at CCBC Randallstown April 18, 12:00-3:00 pm, 3637 Offutt Road, Randallstown, MD 2113.  For more Open House information call 443-840-4700.
