Reviews for Maryland New Directions, Inc.
Maryland New Directions is a phenomenal organization dedicated to helping the community its serves find meaningful employment. They teach you very valuable job search skills and very helpful tips that are essential in being successful in applying to jobs and securing employment from interviews. I was an intern at MND in the fall of 2016 and I attended UB in the Master's program for Human Services Administration. The workshops and advice I received from the staff at MND has been instrumental in my current job search as I have just graduated with my degree two weeks ago. I attended a college preparatory high school and also received my Bachelor's degree from Morgan State University and some of the skills I learned at MND, I had never been exposed to and I am forever grateful for my experience, the staff, and the organization as a whole. The skills I have obtained has helped my personal development as well as my career growth.
I have a lot about metric system program .I learn that it will help me in future Port of Baltimore logistic department.
its a very good program,looking forward to joining what else MND has to offer
I was unemployed for 2 years while taking care of a terminally ill relative. I applied to quite a few jobs with no success then a friend told me about the Maryland New directions program and I signed up. I have to say that it is the best decision that I have ever made. The information that i have learned here at New Directions, I am sure will help me to succeed in finding employment and I would recommend this program to anyone.
The course is an excellent way to upgrade your professional and interviewing skills. It also helps you prepare for the right career and job that you are applying for.
was very delightful to hear of such a great program.i am forever graceful to been accepted for mnd
I learned a great deal in the class. All of the classes were very helpful in learning all about the Port and how all the goods come through the Port.

I came to this program with concerns of what will I be learning to gain employment. Little did I know that this program provided information for me to enact with a group of people that I never knew to make decisions and learn the business of the company that I would like to work with some day. there is much more I have learn and I am so excited, and it's only been one week. I look forward to the next two weeks in learning how to present and conduct myself for employment. Happy hunting.

I graduated from college two years ago and have been looking for a job for the last five months. I turned down a job right after graduation because I wanted to help my brother run a snowball business that he and I were in partnership with. Because it has been two years since my graduation and I wasn't hired in the field of my study it has made it hard for me to find a job. My guess is that employers have made negative judgments against me because of that and turned me down. I found out about Maryland New Directions two days before the Maritime Employment program started on June 11, 2015 from a friend of mine. I called the number that my friend gave me and the receptionist signed me up and two days later I was chosen for the program from a lengthy list of people who were also interested.
The program is an excellent one, rivaling any college course I have ever studied. You'll learn more in this three-week program than a typical three-month college course. You'll learn interview skills as well as a firm grasp of the international shipping industry that goes on in every port across the world. You'll also get to network with professionals in the maritime shipping industry that a typical person may not know about. This is a great program, I would rate it A+ even if I were to compare to a college course!
I was brought into new directions in the second class by ms Claire and I am learning so much I am greatly apreciative
