CONNECT – Professional Networking Group

connect logo

One of our community’s biggest strengths is the professional, experienced talent that lives here.

Joining forces with Santa Fe College, CONNECT and Back to Work 50+ programs will work together to connect older workers with valuable, in-demand skills with local employers with employment opportunities requiring those skills. CONNECT will be hosting twice-monthly meetings where employers and job seekers can connect at the Santa Fe College beginning Monday, November 6, 2017. Past employers have included Infinite Energy and Gainesville Health & Fitness.

CONNECT was developed in 2009 in collaboration with the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, CareerSource North Central Florida, the North Central Florida Society of Human Resource Managers and H.R. Professionals (SHRM). As a professional-level networking group, CONNECT makes it easy for employers to find the highly-skilled talent they are looking for right in their own community.

We have placed 251 professionals representing $6,794,985 in salary circulating in our community.

Meet with employers at this weekly networking program for professional-level job-seekers. Our goal is to connect Gainesville’s highly-skilled talent with employers on Monday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
