TAMPA, FL – CareerSource Tampa Bay, the Florida Senior Living Institute (FLSI), and the Florida Senior Living Association have partnered to announce a new in-person Job Fair in Tampa to recruit employees for the senior living industry in Florida. The Job Fair will be held in conjunction with the annual Florida Senior Living Conference and hosted by FSLI in Tampa at the JW Marriott Tampa located at 510 Water Street on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“Recruiting and retaining staff members continues to be one of our top priorities,” said Gail Matillo, President, and CEO of the Florida Senior Living Association, which manages the Florida Senior Living Institute. “Our communities are looking for qualified and committed people with a heart for taking care of our senior residents.”
Senior living employers representing Florida assisted living communities, memory care communities, and independent living communities will be on-site to interview and potentially make job offers on the spot. Among those employers participating are Brookdale Senior Living, Senior Lifestyle, Grand Villa Senior Living, Five Star Senior Living, MedBest Recruiting, Distinctive Living, and Eclipse Senior Living, and more.
“We look forward to working with FSLI and FSLA on this Job Fair,” Said CSTB CEO John Flanagan. “CareerSource Tampa Bay is proud to assist these Senior Living Industry members in finding employees that are dedicated to taking care of Florida’s senior community.”
