This is one of the most valuable nonprofits institutions that I have been involved with. I enjoyed the information
that have been taught to me. This is why I made sure that I always on time for information that came my way.
All the employees I enjoyed working with and I appreciate all the information that they taught me.
I will pass the word out to others who I know can value from what I learned.

I have been unemployed for nearly one year, with very few interview opportunities following my applications. Within the week I spent at Maryland New Directions Employment Training Boot Camp, I was able to make connections, build a network and receive job leads. I received information about employment opportunities during my mock interview, from the other clients enrolled and improved my interview skills so much so that I interviewed for a position via phone during a lunch break when I was only calling to check on the status of my application. They are positive and uplifting and will not only keep you motivated but provide you with tools to keep you empowered in your job search!

This experience has helped me overcome my career barriers on multiple levels concerning my employment status. The staff made me feel very comfortable and gave me the knowledge I need to excel with my job search. I've been to several different job readiness training programs and this one taught me exactly what I needed to know in such a short time. I'm grateful to have come across this program because now I feel confident enough that I will succeed at finding employment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
