The Employ Florida app is now available on the Google Play for Android and Apple App Store. The app, according to a release from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, will connect Florida’s unemployed to thousands of job listings across the state.
The free app is connected to the Employ Florida job bank, populated by postings from Florida businesses and nearly 20,000 websites, including Monster, Indeed and CareerBuilder, according to the release. Those registered through EmployFlorida.com can apply for positions and save searches. Guest users can view openings on their mobile device, view previous searches and apply later to those in which they are interested. Job seekers can also map and sort job listings in order to apply for jobs closest to home. Job opportunities can be viewed on a map or as a list.
Registered users can also receive Reemployment Assistance credit for job searches on EmployFlorida.com using the desktop version or the mobile app.
The app was developed by Geographic Solutions, Inc., in collaboration with CareerSource Florida and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
