Business-Driven. Talent-Focused.

Growing a career is more than a job search. It’s about positioning yourself to grow in a changing and competitive marketplace. At CareerSource North Central Florida, we have the tools and resources you need to adapt to the ever-changing job market.

Whether you’re looking to change titles, grow your earnings, or transition into a new industry, we have the tools and resources to help.

Workshops & Soft-Skills Training

Our workshops and soft-skills training sessions provide career seekers with a strong foundation for success in the workforce. That’s why we offer a wide array of training resources from opportunities covering social media in the workplace to resume preparation.

Most sessions are available to career seekers at no cost. Check out our calendar for a complete list of upcoming workshops and training sessions or schedule an appointment today with a staffing specialist.

Credentials & Industry Training

The skills and credentials required to succeed in the workforce are changing rapidly. Thanks to our business-driven leadership, we know how to arm you with the right training to grow your earnings today. Our team of staffing specialists has access to the tools and resources to help you strengthen your skills in growing, in-demand occupations that will increase your employability and, ultimately, your earnings.

With a network of partners and collaborators, we can provide you the support and resources you need to earn credentials or the ability to head back to school to secure credentials for high-demand occupations. Even better, many of our credential- and industry-training resources can be paired with paid work-based training.

Work-Based Training

If you’re looking for a more hands-on experience to upgrade your skills, CareerSource NCFL is a national leader in work-based training opportunities. Since 2011, we have pioneered collaborations with employers in Alachua and Bradford counties to provide you real-life experience in the workplace.

Even better, many of our programs let you earn while you learn, with competitive wages set by employers that match industry standards. At the end of these programs, employers often offer to hire you to fill the role you’ve trained in. According to an independent study, participants in one of our training programs increased their annual earnings by nearly $10,000.
