Non-profit Organization Will Increase In-Person Appointments and Accept Limited Walk-ins While Continuing Virtual Service Delivery for Central Florida Residents
Orlando, Fla., — Florida’s second largest regional workforce board continues its commitment to assist Central Florida residents with complimentary career services. Beginning Monday, May 3, CareerSource Central Florida (CSCF) will increase the number of in-person appointments and will allow a limited number of walk-ins for self-service job search activities — the number of people at each Career Center at any one given time will be based on social distancing guidelines. Customers can make a virtual or in-person appointment on the website CareerSourceCentralFlorida.com or by calling the Contact Center at 1-800-757-4598, which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“As we continue to see increased demand from residents looking for their next career path, we remain focused on supporting the community and helping individuals get back to work through a variety of career services,” said Mimi Coenen, Chief Operating Officer, CareerSource Central Florida. “Increasing capacity at our Career Centers will allow our team to assist even more residents with consultative services and also provide some time for self-service job search or work registration associated with the state’s re-employment benefits.”
Health and safety remain top priorities, and CSCF continues to abide by local and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Customers and staff will continue to undergo health screenings, wear masks, and practice social distancing at every Career Center.
Residents can visit a CSCF Career Center to conduct self-service job search activities or meet with a dedicated Consultant. Career service resources include:
