Previously known as Jobs Etc. and Suncoast Workforce Board, CareerSource Suncoast is nonprofit employment agency serving job seekers and employers in Manatee and Sarasota counties. We’re part of the CareerSource network which includes 23 other local boards with a 100 offices statewide. All 24 regions rebranded under the CareerSource umbrella in 2014.
To help recruit, train and retain talent for employers on the Suncoast
There have been workforce programs in the community dating all the way back to the enactment of the Wagner-Peyser Act in 1933, which is still in existence. Prior to becoming the Suncoast Workforce Board, the Manasota Industry Council ran workforce programs in Sarasota starting in 1983.
We provide services to meet their employment needs. For employers, that can range from hiring events and job postings to training grants and labor market data. For job seekers, we have 3 offices across the two counties to assist with job applications, unemployment filings, a networking group and a series of workshops to write better resumes and to perform better in interviews.
A bright colorful atmosphere staffed by some very caring and dedicated professionals.
Anyone can be our customer. Job seekers, businesses, schools, we work collaboratively with all of them to connect employers and job seekers in our community.
The ability to reach so many businesses in our community to talk about helping them find and manage their talent to grow the business and the prosperity of their staff.
We sit on the boards of many other community partners such as the United Way, ELC, the EDC and so many others. We’re also active in advisory groups at the high schools and technical college for their career education programs.
Fulfilling our vision of bringing increased economic prosperity to the businesses and individuals who reside on the Suncoast by providing great education on careers and the labor market in our local area
We can’t live without collaboration, community, and chocolate.
