Those seeking for new economic opportunity may get their shot at the second-annual WorkBaltimore Empowerment to Employment Convention! scheduled for the end of September.
The city wil partner with local businesses and educators to provide pre-convention work readiness workshops, services, and resources until Sept. 21. The culminating event takes place Sept. 26 and 27 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
The convention is meant to pull in job seekers from a broad range of industries and levels of career experience, all meant to connect Baltimore businesses with those seeking opportunities.
“Connecting Baltimore City residents who need and want to work – and who have the skills and capability to make a positive difference – with those who need quality employees is what WorkBaltimore is all about,” said Mayor Catherine E. Pugh in a statement. “Moving Baltimore forward depends on moving individuals and families forward by extending opportunities for personal, professional and economic advancement. As such, we’re delighted for the second year to provide this forum for employers and prospective employees to come together and identify solutions that serve their mutual interests.”
Those interested in making a tax-deductible contribution to the convention or other city efforts can do so through the Baltimore City Foundation's website.
