New CareerSource Florida Website
Built to Meet Business Needs
With information at our fingertips, today more than ever, consumers including business representatives go online first to research a product or service before acquiring it. According to the Score Association, a nonprofit organization of small business counselors and mentors supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration, 97 percent of consumers search for products and services online. Score also reports that 91 percent of consumers who have a positive experience on a company’s website end up doing business with the company.
CareerSource Florida is a statewide nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect employers with qualified, skilled talent and Floridians with employment and career development opportunities.
