One month after "Black Thursday," the day hundreds of Baltimore County workers lost their jobs, four have found work in the private sector through the county's job placement center, and three have filled vacancies in county government.A dozen other county jobs are available, though they won't be filled until mid-April at the earliest, according to personnel officials.The depressed economy isn't making the job search easy for those out of work. Many older, former middle-management workers are "harder to place" because they want jobs with salaries and duties comparable to the jobs they lost, says John M. Wasilisin, the county's job placement administrator.
