Maryland residents learn job-landing skills at Prince George’s Community College
When MGM Resorts announced it was opening a casino at National Harbor in Maryland, Prince George’s Community College began designing skills-based classes to produce a qualified, trained workforce to fill thousands of new jobs.
The State of Maryland has been chipping away at its unemployment rate by improving workforce development through local community colleges, technical schools, and training centers. These institutions fuel job growth by preparing the local population with new skills, and Prince George’s Community College has been a ready partner in this endeavor.
Students are enjoying faster, more reliable connections on campus and at the extension centers. The cost of networking new sites has declined significantly because of the flexibility of the new Juniper network. The college is now able to throw up a site-to-site connection in almost a tenth of the time, and at a much lower cost.
