New Resource for Hiring - Maryland employers seeking job-ready talent now have a FREE resource to post jobs: the Maryland Community Colleges Jobs Consortium website, powered by College Central Network, Inc. (CCN). The website:  makes it both FREE and easy for employers—large and small, public and private—to register just once and then post an unlimited number of jobs to Maryland's community college students and alumni! This is an extraordinarily useful resource for employers hiring in today's climate, even with temporarily closed or restricted campuses, and students having to return home. Employers posting jobs today can simultaneously reach tens of thousands of job seekers.

Census 2020 Update- Maryland scored a 47% Self-Response rate, which is higher than the national rate of 44%, (as of 4.4.20). That is a great start, but leaves out 53%. Please encourage your employees and neighbors to respond to the Census. The final tally affects how much funding and supplies we get for the next 10 years. We want everyone counted!
