News Release, Platinum PR

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Southern Maryland JobSource hosted the grand opening of the Prince Frederick American Job Center on Tuesday, October 8 at 3:00 p.m. at the office of the Calvert County Department of Social Services, 200 Duke St., Suite 1900 in Prince Frederick.

Calvert County Commissioners, the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce, and state and local officials were in attendance at the event, which was a partnership between the Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland (TCCSMD) and the Calvert County Department of Social Services.

“We’re delighted to celebrate the opening of the Prince Frederick American Job Center,” said Ruthy Davis, director, regional workforce and business development, TCCSMD. “This new center will be the go-to resource for job seekers and businesses seeking talent in Calvert County, and the support we’ve received from the county during the creation of this new center is truly memorable.”

The Calvert County Department of Social Services also expressed satisfaction with the new job center. “We are proud to open the doors to the American Job Center at our local office,” said Amye Scrivener, department director. “Our customers can conveniently job search, obtain employment resources, and receive job readiness skills in one location. Through our continued partnership with the Tri-County Council for Southern Maryland, we will provide these opportunities for residents seeking employment assistance.” 

The Prince Frederick American Job Center is now one of four job centers operated by Southern Maryland JobSource. Southern Maryland JobSource partners with local workforce development agencies to provide a full range of assistance to job seekers and businesses. Their job centers assist job seekers in reaching their employment goals by providing consultants to advise on all aspects of the job search and provide referrals to training programs and workshops.

Southern Maryland JobSource is a joint program of TCCSMD and the Maryland Department of Labor. TCCSMD serves as a forum for the discussion and resolution of issues affecting the Southern Maryland region.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
