A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona, and Poinciana Campuses
According to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, overall, in May Florida’s jobless rate stood at 14.5%. However, our local area is faring worse. The counties with the four highest unemployment rates are all in Central Florida: Osceola County has a 31.1% unemployment rate, followed by Orange County with 23.2%, then Lake and Polk counties. Perhaps your students are looking for work, or a family member or friend is.
Please share this good news: in addition to their virtual services, CareerSource Central Florida began offering limited in-person client services in the Osceola Campus’ CIT building on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. To make a virtual or in-person appointment, click on one of the Request Your Appointment buttons on their website. Appointments will be made within 1-2 business days of the request. Anyone who goes to the CIT building who has not made an appointment will receive assistance in making an appointment, so walk-ins will not be seen.
For safety, masks are required, and they will be conducting temperature checks for in-person appointments. Call 1-800-757-4598 for further assistance or visit CareerSource’s Coronavirus Support page for career seeker and employer resources.
