Due to growing business, a local attorney contacted the Carroll Workforce Center to find qualified clerical candidates. After discussing the open position with the workforce staff, it was determined that the center would collect applications for four weeks and administer a typing test to all applicants. When it came time to fill the position, the attorney was thrilled with the number and quality of applicants they had to choose from. They even ended up hiring a full-time and a part-time person. The attorney was very happy with all services they received from the Carroll Workforce Center.
