Veterans Jobs Portal

Governor Charlie Crist, continuing his commitment to assist Florida’s more than 1.6 million military veterans and strengthen the state’s workforce, announced a new online jobs portal to provide employment services to Florida veterans. Employ Florida Vets, the newest initiative in Florida’s commitment to veterans, helps match servicemen and women to the jobs and training opportunities that suit the skills and experience gained in the military.

“Our courageous veterans are proven, skilled leaders whose integrity and discipline have helped protect the freedoms and opportunities we all enjoy,” said Governor Crist. “Employ Florida Vets is the latest example of our commitment to provide the men and women who defended our nation and now call Florida home with enhanced opportunities to find jobs and access training and other resources that will help them be successful in their civilian careers.”

Adjutant General of Florida Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr. “This is not only an effective way of making sure our citizen-Soldiers and Airmen are given the tools they need to find meaningful employment, but a great opportunity to provide Florida employers with access to our highly skilled and professional veterans." The web portal is a gateway to information and resource links that will assist veterans, veterans' families and employers in accomplishing their employment goals.

Portal highlights include:
  • A unique jobs search function to help veterans find civilian jobs that match the skills they learned in the military
  • Information about the Florida law that gives veterans hiring preference when they apply for public-sector jobs.
  • Information for Florida businesses and organizations about tax incentives available for hiring veterans.
  • A centralized jobs posting site for employers seeking veterans with specialized skills.
  • Employers are able to enter open positions directly on or through their local One-Stop Career Center.
