County launches new virtual career center for residents

By Lee Stephens….
Miami-Dade County recently launched a conveniently accessible online career center, a brainchild of Miami-Dade Commission chair Joe A. Martinez.

Miami-Dade residents now can search easily for jobs from a one-stop cyber portal. In February, county commissioners passed Martinez’s resolution directing county staff to use its Web and media resources to inform residents about jobs in the public and private sectors. In addition to job posting there’s also a wealth of information on resume building, interviewing skills, workshops and training seminars.

Miami-Dade County has partnered with the South Florida Workforce Investment Board to use county resources to market its services to both employees and employers. The county also will establish public/private partnerships to allow government and the private sector to use county resources to advertise job openings.

“What makes this different from other job websites is that this new one-stop career portal allows employers to post job opportunities free of charge and those looking for jobs to search in one site,” Martinez said. “The goal of this virtual center is to pair qualified job candidates with local businesses seeking to fill open positions. Anyone can gain access to the site whether from a home computer or at any public library.”

Residents looking for jobs can visit and see the left-hand menu titled “All County Services.” A “Career Center” link will lead residents to a job listing, as well as allow local businesses to post open positions. Resume Resource Centers also are available at regional libraries to assist the public in the preparation, scanning, and copying of resumes.

For more information, contact Martinez’s office at 305-375-5511.
