Careersource NCFL Gainesville Career Center Hosts Federal Bonding Workshop

Are you an ex-offender facing difficulties securing employment?

The Federal Bonding Program assists at-risk or hard-to-place job seekers in securing employment by providing employers a free fidelity bond on their behalf. Without this bond, the job seeker’s inability to become bonded by an insurance company decreases the chances of obtaining a job.

  • Welfare recipients and persons who have poor financial credit or have declared bankruptcy
