KatrinaCareerSolutions.com Clearwater, FL (Sept 26, 2005) In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, hundreds of thousands of people who lost their homes and jobs are now settling in to new residences looking for employment. Florida CareerLINK (www.floridacareerlink.com), the leading recruitment services provider in Tampa Bay, today announced the launch of www.katrinacareersolutions.com, a new web site that connects Hurricane Katrina evacuees with Florida employers eager to help them find jobs in the state.

Employers can post as many jobs as they wish on www.katrinacareersolutions.com at no cost. Job seekers can also search listings for free.
