    Julia Lynton-Brown, Talent Management Coordinator, Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development

    Let’s face it. Looking for a job can be a challenging, frustrating and sometimes lonely effort. Baltimore County’s Workforce Development Centers can help. Clients who visit the County’s Eastpoint, Hunt Valley or Liberty Center in Randallstown will experience a warm and friendly team of career professionals to assist with services such as professional development seminars, career counseling, resume review and job interview assistance. By registering in the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWE), jobseekers can also have access to employment opportunities, onsite recruitment events and timely labor market information.

    Companies with jobs to fill work with Baltimore County’s Business Services team to connect with talented workers through free, customized onsite recruitments. Recent opportunities ranged from corporate call centers to manufacturing, with informational and interviewing sessions for companies such as McCormick, Toyota Financial, BD (Becton Dickinson) and Access Receivables.

    “Strategic partnerships among the County’s Business Services team, Workforce Development Centers and our business partners have resulted in full-time opportunities offering competitive wages and benefits for many of our customers” said Leo Martinelli, Hunt Valley Workforce Development Center Manager.

    Outreach and pre-screening by center staff is key to ensuring businesses meet well qualified candidates. BD and Toyota Financial have returned twice and hired qualified candidates as a direct result of workforce recruitment sessions. Access Receivables, one of the most recent businesses to partner with Economic and Workforce Development, hired additional workforce candidates.

    “All service related businesses revolve around the ability to find, hire and train excellent people. In our experience with the Baltimore County Department of Economic and Workforce Development, we’ve achieved our hiring goals. We believe this success was entirely due to our partnership with the County and a mutual understanding of this business challenge, said Kevin Gillespie, Vice President of Access Receivables in Hunt Valley. “It is our hope to continue this partnership, as their dedicated team of professionals have built an excellent model for local employers, the local workforce and the entire community.”

    “This has been one of the most successful methods for us to find and hire the talent needed to fill our Corporate Call Center opportunities,” states Scott Brooke, Talent Acquisition Consultant for Toyota Financial Services in Owings Mills.

    “The talent is always professional and well prepared for the interview,” added Cindy Denholm, HR Partner for BD in Sparks.

  2. UK Tech firm lands in Baltimore County

    Baltimore County has long been a prime spot for companies specializing in advanced electronics, radar, and microwave technologies.  These often low-key businesses operate “under the radar,” so to speak, designing, engineering, manufacturing and servicing equipment used by the Department of Defense. Here’s a look at a company that crossed the pond and found Baltimore County to be the perfect location for their specialized tech business.

    TMD Technologies is one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of specialized parts for radar and electronic warfare applications, as well as advanced commercial microwave amplifiers for EMC testing, scientific and medical applications. Last year, the UK-based company established its first U.S. subsidiary, TMD Technologies LLC, in Baltimore County.  Based in Halethorpe, the new subsidiary offers a significant benefit to U.S. customers, bringing local technical support, repair and product support, dealing with export compliance and handling classified interchanges.

    TMD has sold a large number of microwave products to U.S. customers over many years and the company recognized the desirability of having a North American office to service its U.S. customers more efficiently and effectively. The company looked at sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware before selecting the Beltway Business Park in Halethorpe. Access to federal decision makers and defense contractors and a prime location at the intersection of I-695 and I-95 near BWI Marshall Airport were attractive to the U.K.-headquartered company.

    "TMD's success in the U.S. radar and electronic warfare (EW) market has been exceptional.  Enhancing TMD's U.S. support presence to better serve our customers is extremely exciting and Baltimore County was the right location for this facility," said Mike Farley, CEO of the TMD Technologies U.S.
