“We want to take every precaution to make sure our residents and staff stay healthy,” MOED Director Jason Perkins-Cohen said. “While our physical career centers will be closed to the public, we will provide employment and career-building support in ways that don’t require in-person interactions.” 


The Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) coordinates and directs workforce development initiatives responsive to the needs of Baltimore City employers and job seekers in order to enhance and promote the local economy.


Our vision is for all city residents to maximize their career potential, and all employers have the human resources to grow and prosper – a workforce system that works.
