The Division of Workforce Development and Adult Learning (DWDAL) oversees the State's workforce programs and
ensures employers have the skilled workforce they need to be competitive as well as helps Marylanders access employment, training
and education resources and services.
Overview: Maryland's Workforce System, comprised of a partnership between the thirty-four (34)
One Stop Career Centers and the twelve (12) Workforce Investment Boards, serves as
the primary tool for both adults and dislocated workers to access a vast array of resources, including training, with the
end result of securing gainful employment. The Centers are part of Maryland Jobs Now,
a network of high-performing, results-oriented workforce organizations investing in employment and training strategies,
services, and initiatives, affording Marylanders good-paying jobs in a thriving economy.
Each of the Career Centers offers access to the
Maryland Workforce Exchange Virtual One Stop (MWE-VOS) - a
web-based program allowing job seekers to manage their own career accounts using individual on-line folders. A visit
to the MWE-VOS site will provide not only assistance to job seekers but to
businesses as well who post job opening in
the job bank or look for potential candidates for employment opportunities.
Additionally, MWE-VOS may be accessed from an individual's home computer as well.
Veterans: Maryland One Stop Career Centers offer Priority of Service to
Veterans, including case management
services, referral to supportive services, and vocational guidance.
Agricultural Employers and Workers: Assistance for individuals
and businesses is available at the One Stop Career Centers, such as bilingual services, career planning, and job
search workshops and programs.
Individuals with Disabilities: A full range of employment services
is available to applicants with disabilities.
Videos: Several videos are available outlining the many programs and
services offered by the Division of Workforce Development and Adult Learning.
