Staff Kudos ~ OJT Team

Teresa, I would like to express our appreciation to you and your staff for all of your assistance during our hiring process. From account set up, job posting and OJT benefit research, you’ve been a “light in the darkness” and a comfort. Our having to keep all other job tasks moving along yet go through the hiring process creates a bit of a time and task crunch. With all of your assistance, it was much less chaotic, much easier and smoother. – Joanne Forsythe

Carolina, thank you personally as well as others at CareerSource Pinellas with providing the encouragement and tools to help me through my job transition. The experience was trying, frustrating, confusing, and disheartening (sometimes all at the same time!). But, I really appreciated the upbeat attitude you provided at the PPN meetings and the opportunity to glean from a host of speakers who had been through a similar job search experience. I truly believe I learned more about myself, others, and now have a better perspective of where I want my future to go. – Michael Dorweiler

CareerSource Florida and Tobacco Free Florida Working Together for a Healthier Florida

CareerSource Florida and Tobacco Free Florida are working together for a healthier Florida.  Tobacco Free Florida understands how essential staff’s daily work is to helping job seekers build better lives. That’s why they are joining with CareerSource Florida to help expand your impact. Thanks to a statewide partnership, CareerSource staff will now be able to refer clients to Florida’s “3 Easy & Free Ways to Quit” cessation services.  Multifaceted in approach, the statewide roll-out features a project tutorial, a Cost Savings calculator, referral forms, and marketing materials as well as a customized, web-based “Cost Savings” landing page that can be shared with clients who agree to briefly discuss their tobacco use with you at the centers.  Please view the project tutorial as soon as possible.

Project Tutorial: http://fl.btpp.myhostedsolution.net/CareerSource_FL/default.aspx

This tutorial provides an overview of the Tobacco Cessation Model Project, which can help your clients quit tobacco and eliminate the negative impact it has on their finances and employability.

 The Costs Savings Landing Page Link: www.tobaccofreeflorida.com/cost

This is a customized link to web-based information for clients that features an interactive Cost Calculator. With a few clicks they can see for themselves how much they can save, if they quit smoking by using Florida’s 3 Free and Easy ways to quit.
