About Us

BACK TO WORK Ltd.  is a nonprofit corporation and shall be operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the context of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code.

Unemployment through job loss has been identified as a major factor in the economic deficiency of the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. region. Communication skills offer much cross over ability into a variety of employment opportunities. Our focus is to reach out to the unemployed, underemployed and military veteran populations. We strongly believe that skills learned as a journalist are easily transferable into the corporate world. Through education, we can assist in reintroducing skilled employees into the workforce.

The corporation’s goal is to assist in lowering the unemployment rate in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area by (re)educating and empowering unemployed journalism, communications and liberal arts job seekers in the Baltimore metropolitan area by facilitating career coaching, resume’ building, and providing opportunities to showcase their work. In particular, minorities and military veterans have been extremely hard hit during the economic downturn. We will place special emphasis on introducing this group of unemployed individuals with sustainable employment opportunities.

BACK TO WORK Ltd. will use its resources of journalists and experienced mentors to hold free seminars focusing on methods for preparing resumes, building portfolios, showcasing as well as marketing one’s work. The corporation will offer a platform – e.g. BaltimorePostExmainer.com – where such individuals can get their stories, features, blogs, press releases, photography, and videos published to enhance a resume’ and be more attractive to employers. We work side by side with professional recruiting firms, including Bionoesis. Additionally, we will use our lengthy list of contacts to host training events and job fairs to pair companies with our applicants.
