General Workforce Resources
National H.I.R.E. Network: The National H.I.R.E. Network works to increase the number and quality of job opportunities available to people with criminal records. They serve as a clearinghouse for information on ex-offender hiring, with both national and state-specific resources for employers, advocates, policy makers, and job seekers.

EmployerToolkit.com: The Baltimore Workforce Investment Board created and maintains EmployerToolkit.com as an outlet for local workforce information and services. Employers can find information on everything from tax credits to employment law to recruitment services. The toolkit is easy to search by service category or by organization.
