CareerSource Suncoast, alongside partners the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota and University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee, is proud to announce its participation in the state’s eighth annual Paychecks for Patriots, a special hiring fair in November dedicated to employing veterans, on November 12 from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. To celebrate Veterans Day this month, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Florida National Guard, the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs and participating Florida employers are partnering with CareerSource Florida regions to connect veterans with available careers in their community.
In an effort to address the employment needs of service members and veterans across the state, the annual Paychecks for Patriots event works to bring employers with current employment opportunities in Florida to the table with great military and veteran candidates. This year’s event may look different than usual, but CareerSource Suncoast remains committed to using technology to still allow for service members and veterans to come together with local businesses. For the Manatee-Sarasota region, CareerSource Suncoast is happy to partner with State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota and University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee to bring this event to the veterans in our community.
CareerSource Suncoast is excited to serve those who have served our country. Through Paychecks for Patriots, businesses will be connected with talented, well-trained veterans to join their team. In the past seven years, more than 6,280 veteran candidates and military family members who participated in Paychecks for Patriots across the state have gained employment.
This year, the events will be hosted in communities throughout the state during the month of November. Veterans and their families bring dedication, a special set of skills and diversity to Florida’s workforce. CareerSource Suncoast will aim to match veterans with employers who value the knowledge, skills, and attributes attained during military service.
