Job Site of the Month: Florida CareerLINK
By Arthur J. Byrnes
Do you hate "Blind" ads? You know, the ones where they
describe the job in great glowing terms, but don’t tell you the
name of the company. It makes you think its a scam or that
they are ashamed of the company. If so, you’ll love
The site is amazing. Throughout the site, they list their
clients by name, along with the jobs offered by the clients.
This site is so refreshing, after dealing every day with
paranoid recruiters who don’t even list the city where a job is
Want to work for Pepsi, Primeco, Lockheed, or User Friendly?
They have the listings, and they have them in a simple easy to
read format. The listings for each company include, a
description of the company, the benefits, and links to the
detailed job descriptions. The job listings are detailed, and
most include the salary range.
The variety of jobs is incredible! So many on-line job sites
only list computer related jobs. FloridaCareerLink lists
everything from clerks to lab techs, to engineers to CIO’s.
You can put your resume in their on-line data base, but be
careful one of the questions they ask is a little too private.
There is no reason to give your Social Security Number until
actually filling out a private job application. You can leave
the SSN field blank.
Once you have put in your resume, you can apply for any of
their listed jobs, by just clicking the link at the bottom of
the page. Your resume is also searchable by the companies and
recruiters that subscribe to the site, so you may get an
e-mail job offer!
If you are looking for a job in Central Florida, don’t
miss the FloridaCareerLink site, Good Jobs, Good information,
and its free.
