Early Intervention Workshop external site from Maryland’s Columbia Workforce Center external site

Maryland’s Columbia Workforce Center uses O*NET OnLine as an important component of their Early Intervention Workshop. Recipients of unemployment insurance receive instruction on how to find jobs, research job and employer requirements, and successfully compete for open positions. O*NET OnLine helps these job seekers build resumes by identifying tasks they have mastered on previous jobs. They are also encouraged to use the information in O*NET OnLine to prepare for interviews by thoroughly understanding the requirements of the occupation for which they are interviewing. Another key feature of the workshop is introducing the participants to the O*NET Career Exploration Tools as aids to making career path decisions.
