February 9, 2017

The CareerSource Florida network reported in January helping 31,898 Floridians who got jobs. The network includes 24 local workforce development boards, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and 100 career centers throughout the state.

Local workforce development boards are ranked monthly based on several factors, including the number of job seekers who gain employment after being assisted in a career center or via, Florida’s job-matching and career development website; the number of available job openings in the local area; and the number of Reemployment Assistance beneficiaries who find employment after receiving workforce services.

The top three local boards for job placements reported last month are:

  1.  CareerSource Tampa Bay, which serves Hillsborough County;
  2.  CareerSource Pinellas, which serves Pinellas County; and,
  3.  CareerSource South Florida, which serves Dade and Monroe counties.

The CareerSource Florida network reported in fiscal year 2015-2016 assisting 392,930 Floridians who secured employment.  A person who receives employment and/or training assistance in a career center or via and finds a job within 180 days may be reported by a local workforce development board as a placement.
