CareerSource North Central Florida is proactively following and monitoring any news regarding COVID-19. We will continue to assess the situation as more information becomes available. Until further notice all public events including hiring events, workshops and the use of our Career Centers are postponed.
*In order to improve our ability to process current applications quicker, CONNECT will be unavailable nightly from 8 p.m. – 7 a.m. for necessary maintenance.*
Given that the coronavirus is a rapidly changing situation, we encourage our customers to limit social interaction and practice social distancing. To that end, rather than visit our career centers we recommend candidates and businesses use our online services:
Technology, including e-learning and assessments tools, will be leveraged in order to accommodate customers online.
Our staff will be utilizing agency-issued cell phones to conduct appointments, while also using scan, fax and email options to send and receive documentation to customers and businesses – limiting face-to-face contact.
We are assessing our ability to deliver our professional workshops and orientations online. For those who do not have access to the Internet, the presentations could potentially be emailed to customers for them to access at a later time.
Our business services team will be working with employers who have scheduled hiring events to determine if we can conduct the events as “virtual” hiring events.
To do our part in social distancing, our agency has postponed or rescheduled upcoming events.
CareerSource North Central Florida highly encourages individuals to take any and all necessary precautions to remain safe, particularly if you are in a high-risk demographic, including the elderly or those with a compromised immune system. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, we strongly recommend that you stay home and contact your healthcare provider and/or your county’s Health Department. Additional updates and up-to-date information about COVID-19 can also be found by visiting www.floridahealth.gov.
Should you have any questions regarding our business or candidate services, or upcoming events, please feel free to contact one of our three career centers nearest you. We at CareerSource North Central Florida never take for granted your decision to work with us, and we look forward to serving you for all of your workforce development needs.
