The primary purpose of job counselor is to work with BJHSG members helping them find gainful and meaningful employment in a career that is of their choosing. Counselors work with job seeking members only after knowing their complete employment history, barriers that they need to overcome, and their aspirations for future work. In general, a job counselor is assigned a job seeker by a BJHSG Co-Facilitator and continues to work with the member until suitable employment is secured.
Prior to beginning the formal job counseling process, counselors give each prospective member a brief overview of the BJHSG’s mission and what they can expect to receive from services. Before receiving job counseling, each member will receive a full assessment and career action plan after meeting with a BJHSG facilitator.
Job Counselors should plan on spending 1-2 hours per month (minimum) including attendance at weekly support group meetings on Tuesdays (if possible). After an initial in-person meeting with a BJHSG coordinator, future sessions can be via a virtual platform or telephonic.

You might know the building as your polling place or as your Girl Scout cookie- sorting place. Perhaps you are already a participant in one of the many organizations that use the space, such as the Baltimore Musicales or Children’s Village.
The Corner Community Center (CCC) wants to enhance and expand the use of this building and grounds at 5802 Roland Avenue. in order to enrich your opportunities to network with your neighbors, to learn about environmental changes you can make to your homes and yards to lessen run-off to the Chesapeake Bay, to offer speakers and programs that deal with concerns you have about our city, and to offer spaces for meetings or programs that you want to offer to the neighborhood - just to get started with the possibilities!
The Baltimore Job Hunters Support Group (BJHSG) is one of the 24 groups that meets at CCC. BJHSG, a volunteer-led group that provides emotional and spiritual support to the unemployed, is expanding to include a formal program of coaching, advocacy, counseling, mutual mentoring, volunteering,and connection to resources, for all persons seeking employment search assistance, with emphasis on long-term unemployed workers (defined as those who have been seeking employment for 6 months or more without success) affected by the Great Recession and those who are age 45-50+ workers.
