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

CONNECT is a professional-level networking group for job seekers with an AA degree or higher or five years of experience in their field. CONNECT launched in 2009 through a collaboration between the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, CareerSource North Central Florida (formerly FloridaWorks), the North Central Florida Society of Human Resource Managers (SHRM), the Florida Employment Advisory Council (FEAC)and Naylor, LLC.

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 5:45 – 7:30 p.m.
