2017 Skills Gap Survey

Local employers served by CareerSource ‚ÄčNortheast Florida will be contacted to provide information on skills needs, job vacancies, and hiring practices. The skills survey is being conducted by Oppenheim Research under contract by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity for CareerSource Florida. Businesses need to know that this is a valid survey being conducted for the benefit of private-sector employers in their local areas. The purpose of the survey is to identify the types of skills needed by employers based on their hiring and staffing practices. The results will enable CareerSource Northeast Florida and local education providers to better meet the skills needs of businesses in their area. All data collected will be held in strict confidence and used only for statistical purposes. No data from individual employers will be published.
