Priority Access to Services

Veterans are given preference in access to all services. Please identify yourself as a Veteran when visiting a JobsPlus One-Stop Career Center.

 

Job Alerts

An attempt is made to match actively registered Veterans to every new job listing when it first enters our job bank. If a match is found, a job alert is sent to the Veteran who matches certain criteria such as education, relevant work experience, and occupational goals. You must be registered at www.EmployFlorida.com to take advantage of this program.

 

Veteran Email

Daily emails with information on job fairs, new job listings, and local currents events for Veterans. Be in the know. See it first. Sign up by emailing us at vets@jobsplus02.com.

 

Transition Assistance Program (TAP)

TAP is a three-day workshop for service members and their spouses that teaches modern job search, career decision-making, labor market conditions, resume preparation, and interviewing strategies. TAP makes the transition from military service to the civilian workforce less complicated and significantly shortens the job search process. Register by contacting the Eglin Airmen and Family Readiness Center at 850.882.9060 or the Hurlburt Field Airmen and Family Readiness Center at 850.884.1257. Register for the online portion and additional TAP resources.

 

Emerald Coast Professionals

Even veterans who have worked at the professional level sometimes have difficulty making the transition to civilian employment. Leaving long established professional networks developed in the military can make the process even more difficult. Emerald Coast Professionals offers the opportunity to start a support network in the civilian sector. ECP meets at 4:00pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at the following locations.
