A Tailored Experience

Powered by the Employ Florida Marketplace, our team of staffing specialists works with you to identify your goals, build a custom plan, and work side-by-side until you achieve success. Whether you’re a veteran, young adult (ages 16-24), or seasoned executive looking for your next opportunity, we can help. We get you in the right role your way through skills training, job placement services, and more. And it’s all provided at no cost to you.

An Integrated System

Backed by the federal Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act and the resources of the federal Wagner-Peyser Act, we provide career seekers an integrated, career-driven public workforce experience. We serve as a community hub. We have access to a network of state and federal training resources, eligible training providers, and motivated employers looking to provide paid work-based training.

Because of this network, we have the resources in-house to remove nearly any barrier for you as a career seeker.

If you’re getting back on your feet, our career centers can help remove barriers to gaining employment. If you’re ready to upgrade your skills, we provide resources for training and work-based experience all under one roof. If we can’t provide a service in-house, our staffing specialists are available to help you access one of our partners to get back into the workforce.

A Foundation for Success

We provide a wide array of resources for career seekers both online and through our career centers including:

  • Resource Room: Access to computers, internet, fax, telephone and copier
  • Development: eLearning Courses through our Dynamic Futures Curriculum
  • Job Search Tools: Job listings, resume-building tools, and job referrals through our staffing specialists and the Employ Florida Marketplace
  • Market Data: Salary and Labor Market Information
  • Assessments: Skills, aptitude and interest assessments for common skills
  • Workshops: Recurring courses designed to increase your employability skills
